The music blog-turned-cassette label called Farbwechsel has quietly been putting out music from Budapest artists since the tail end of 2012. Those primarily responsible for the label are longstanding friends Martin Mikolai, aka S Olbricht, Bálint Zalkai, who also makes music as Alpár, Balázs Semsei, who produces as Norwell, and Erik Bánhalmi, also known as Svindler. With its foundations firmly rooted in house the label is constantly evolving and open to all styles such as techno, disco and even experimental and deeply rooted traditional electronic music. 

“We wanted to do something together. This phase was relatively short as we soon realised that we’d prefer to release music rather than deal with what sort of music other people make around the globe. By that time there were enough names in Hungary. We started the label because there were very few crews who would deal with the music of the local artists with proper attention and openness.” 

Farbwechsel is more than just a record label. It serves as a communication platform for art and music: the releases are focusing on cover art too and are available in limited hand numbered physical format.
