We are Fabrique

Fabrique is an independent record label, publisher and artist management company, releasing and licensing 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 British avantgarde composer Christopher James Chaplin, acclaimed Berlin-based sound artist and composer Jana Irmert, art pop duo DRAMAS, former Archive frontman Craig Walker, singer and songwriter Loretta Who, electronic music producer Peter Zirbs, electropop artist Lovecat, 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 Galerie Gugging in Lower Austria, including the jointly initiated galerie gugging special edition concert series, followed by the release of an audiobook together with writer Peter Turrini ("Turrini reads Walla"), or conceptual albums from Kava, Hans-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.
