Get Physical

The name says it all: Get Physical tracks could hardly be more moving and corporeal. This aspect of physicality also resurfaces on two of the label’s key releases: the in-house DJ mix series ‘Body Language’ and a string of double vinyl compilations called ‘Full Body Workout’, brimming with new beats and sounds by up-and-coming talents. Not least of all thanks to this emphasis, it has taken Get Physical just four years to become one of the fastest risers and strongest brands of the international club scene. In 2005, influential British dance magazine DJ Mag voted Get Physical ‘Label of the Year’ and, more recently, US mouthpiece for electronic music, XLR8R, devoted a front page story to the label. Figures at, the world’s largest digital music store for dance-related tracks, paint an unambiguous picture: Get Physical Music is their best-selling label across all categories. iTunes, too, frequently features GPM releases on its homepage or in its sales charts.

Together in Berlin

The Berlin/Prenzlauer Berg-based label is backed by a collective of six people, each of whom had a long-standing career in music before making their own, separate ways to the German capital at the beginning of the new millennium. “Coming together at the right time and the right place” – here the tired old metaphor actually makes sense. Enjoying perfect chemistry right from the start, at the outset of their mutual journey in 2002, all of the label’s founding members were already more than familiar with the peculiarities, practices and expectations of electronic music and club life.
