Digging is an art form. Thank you very much to anyone who has made it his business to rediscover music and make it accessible to a possibly small but passionate group of music lovers. Meet Maxim Løy and his label Baran Records. Born in the Ukraine and now living in Dresden, Maxim has helped to bring forgotten synth pop and proto techno pearls from the former Soviet Union back to light with almost ten releases now. Furthermore, Baran Records is also home to his own releases under the names Andreuccio Torelli and Elektroherd (together with his friend Pavel Golubovski). Recently Maxim visited Philipp in the coloRadio studio to talk a bit about the label and to listen to some of the music. The talking is in German, but the music is universal.
