Welcome to the home of Übersee Records!
We are finally closing a gap! Übersee Records ("Overseas Records") is a young label from Germany determined to capture the unique power, flair and passion of the Latin-American continent. The ones who've experienced a MOLOTOV or TIJUANA NO! show - even without any prior knowledge - definitely know what we're talking about. Bands from Mexico (i.e. PANTEON ROCOCO) or Argentina (i.e. THE FUN PEOPLE) have been touring Europe successfully and driving the crowds crazy in sold out venues. Unfortunately you could hardly ever conserve that experience and take it home on CD with you. The bands sold their entire merchandise that they had brought over after one week on tour and over here there was no label serving that market either.
That's going to change! The Übersee-Crew has prepared some delicious musical appetizers - from California down to Argentina, from rough Stoner-Punk Rock to Latin-Folk-Ska - to round up the acoustical European diet. Through personal (live-)experiences and friendships across the Atlantic we managed to put together a roster of some bands who've already made it in their countries. We're dedicated to provide the European market with all kinds of exotic latin-music on a long-term basis. The starting roster featured bands like LOS CALZONES, KARAMELO SANTO, UN KUARTITO (all from Argentina), ALMALAFA, TOKADISCOS (both from Mexico), LOS DRYHEAVERS (California) and FUTURO INCIERTO (Peru) and we managed to add great bands like ATTAQUE 77, LOS AUTENTICOS DECADENTES, ARBOL, KAPANGA (all from Argentina), even the inventers of Latin-Ska DESORDEN PUBLICO (from Venezuela) and the well known PANTEON ROCOCO (from Mexico) to it in the short time of our existance. If that's doesn't sound and look promising...
Music is universal! We bring you the soundtrack to your delicious Caipirinhas, Mojitos or a cool Serveza! Salud.
