Caballero Recordings, based in Stuttgart (Germany) started with the first release in 2004. It was Guimarans – “Besame” – a saxophone driven, Spanish influenced
tribal-house tune. Artists like Christian Hornbostel, Esteban Garcia or Dub Deluxe shaped the typical tribal sound of the first releases.
But as stagnation is regression, the sound of Caballero developed through the years and was always close to the up-to-date house sounds of the international club culture – keeping an eye on new trends and talents but never forgetting the roots of house music.
Artists like Thomas Gold, Kid Massive, Chris Montana or Big World found a homebase on Caballero and started their way to an international career.
The next big step was the release of DJ Chus & David Penn feat. Concha Buika – “We Play House” (originally released on Stereo Productions) with some new slamming remixes beginning of 2007 and Caballero gained more and more international reputation as an high-quality house label.
The biggest commercial success followed last year with the release of “Move Your Body” by The Grower feat. Corey Andrew. The remake of the Marshall Jefferson classic included a massive remix by Jesse Garcia and was supported by all the global players like Roger Sanchez, Erick Morillo, Pete Tong, Axwell or Stonebridge. It directly went to No. 2 of the Beatport Top-100 charts and was licensed for numerous compilations worldwide – the international breakthrough was done…
But no time to rest, a lot of high quality releases followed and will follow and artists like Bush II Bush, Jesse Garcia, Muzzaik, Juan Kidd & Felix Baumgartner, Chris Kaeser, Carl Tricks, Gadjo, Belocca, Ruben Alvarez, Gold Ryan & Tapesh, Peter Brown and lots more are now part of the release schedule.
It´s all about house music…nothing more…nothing less!
