Starting as a label that served basically as a platform for their friends’ music in 2010, Uncanny Valley evolved into a record label that assembles acclaimed artists from the electronic music scene not only from the label’s base in Dresden but also from Germany and beyond. With a strong emphasis on the records’ artwork the label heads Philipp Demankowski, Conrad Kaden, Carl-Johannes Schulze and Albrecht Wassersleben are constantly on a mission to establish and refine the artists from the roster as well as to search for new talents. Artists as Jacob Korn, Cuthead, Credit 00, Massimiliano Pagliara, CVBox or Panthera Krause all feel at home on the label, giving them the chance to develop projects that are not only music related but can also integrate different art forms. With the two offshoots Rat Life and shtum under its belt, Uncanny Valley does not stand still to explore the full spectrum of electronic and not so electronic music from House via Disco, Hip-Hop or Ambient through to Techno. A range that can also be depicted when the four label heads come together for a DJ set as Uncanny Valley Soundsystem.
Uncanny Valley Radio 079 - Euro 2020 Special with Gunnar, Conrad and Philipp
Even if the organizations behind it sometimes make professional football unbearable, the fun of the game is still there for @philipp-demankowski. Having already done a special for Uncanny Valley Radio on the occasion of the last World Cup, he invited UV Radio regular guests @conrad-kaden and Gunnar to record a new special for EURO 2020, which for well-known reasons took place in 2021. The rules: Everyone gets eight countries from the field of participants and has to pick a nice song from each country. The result is a fun show with 24 not so typical football anthems.

Uncanny Valley Radio 078 - Dresden Electronic Underground Special
@philipp-demankowski: “It might be a bit exaggerated to state that Dresden was once called "Little Detroit from The East". But there is no question that deep and dirty electronic music has been produced and performed here in numerous dilapidated buildings since the fall of the Wall. Many exciting, often all-too-unknown artists have made sure of that, some of whom are still active today. Both the club culture infrastructure and today's generation of artists in Dresden benefit from this. So it's time for a little special to pay tribute to these unsung heroes. Anyhow, I picked a few of my faves from that place that is our hometown for the new show. Sorry for missing out some of you great artists. There will be a part 2, I’m sure.”
