We are Fabrique

Fabrique is an independent record label, publisher and music supervisor, releasing and licensing various electronic, experimental and indie music since 2002.

What began as a playful interaction between electronic music and experimental art projects has developed over the years under the tutelage of music lovers and label entrepreneurs Michael Martinek and Christian Rösner into a multi-faceted international artists' portfolio with astonishing output and numerous airplay hits, as well as music successfully licensed for film and advertising.

Fabrique's current pool of artists encompasses electronic music and indie artists such as NY-based multiinstrumentalist and singer Heidemann, the fascinating singer and songwriter Loretta Who, British composer and experimental music artist Christopher James Chaplin, electronic pop maestro Lovecat, the Berlin-based sound and media artist Jana Irmert, as well as Wolventrix from London, or British guitarist Boz Boorer, Morrissey's long-time co-songwriter, guitarist and musical director.

Fabrique has also enjoyed a long and fruitful cooperation with the Art Brut gallery in Maria Gugging, Lower Austria, including the jointly initiated "galerie gugging special edition" concert series, followed by the release of an audiobook together with the popular writer Peter Turrini ("Turrini reads Walla") or conceptual albums from Kava, Joachim Roedelius and Christopher James Chaplin, which together have overturned the cliché of the standard label format.

The label's creators intended Fabrique to be an open, artistic, and experiment-friendly workshop; this ambition has been fulfilled ever since the beginning, and has since become the label's defining trademark.
