de’fchild productions is an independent label and music production imprint currently located in San Francisco.

Origin: Conceived in Montréal in June 2004, our first releases appeared on vinyl in springtime 2005. We subsequently relocated from La Belle Province and are currently based in to San Francisco.

Label Philosophy: Our musical interests span time and geography, which frees us from the restraints of any one sound aesthetic, style or musical boundary. Our technical work in the studio has us constantly thinking about ways to cultivate genuinely new means of musical expression. This predilection to studio-borne-inspiration is particularly present in our affection for idioms rooted in dub, experimental electro-acoustics, techno/house. Quintessentially, we’re interested in the pursuit of novel sonic art, while having fun exploring the frontiers of more popular musical forms.

Concept: 3-6 vinyl releases per year, with parity in the online spaces.

Distribution: Our releases on vinyl can either be obtained directly, locally in San Francisco from or Amoeba and internationally from Neuton (Germany), Word and Sound (Germany), Juno (UK), nuloop (France), Technique (Japan), InBeat (Canada) or P45 Records (Switzerland)

    Great music from the label. A real blend of the more minimal but full styles of techno/house. I feel like I've been let in on a secret... this stuff is so good.
