In 1993, WOLFGANG VOIGT established iconic fringe imprint PROFAN – to provide his own idiosyncratic ideas of techno music with an uncensored, liberal publishing platform. From the very beginning, the label stood for a rampant love of experimentation and Voigt's unruly urge to habitually plough through new – and for the most part difficult – musical territory with a straight bass drum.

Driven by incessant transgression of boundaries and genres, WOLFGANG VOIGT ransacks schlager and polka, classical and pop styles, sampling his way across music history. Apart from this range of permanently shifting styles on the mothership PROFAN, you"ll also find the formal rigour of several limited, self-contained series and conceptual sub labels such as STUDIO1, FREILAND, KAFKATRAX or POLKATRAX. Since 2009, Voigt focusses on increasingly abstract and creatively elaborate art/music

releases on PROFAN.

Which is why he launches the sub label PROTEST in 2010, where the expressionist pop techno 12" single á la Voigt has found sort of a second home, heavily informed by his paradigm of sex, drugs and pop art. Originally only available on strictly limited vinyl, a selection of refurbished PROTEST tracks has now found its way onto CD, including two unreleased bonus cuts. The compilation PROTEST - VERSAMMLUNG 1 gives you a representative overview of the current status quo of Cologne techno, indulging in the gaudy funkyness of one of its masters and pioneers.
