Palette Recordings was started by John Tejada in the fall of 1996. Many releases later it is one of the most respected techno labels in the world. Palette became an exclusive outlet for Tejada to release his most prized music. After having released 14 singles, it was time to showcase the talents of other artists. Most of these artists which include Pieter K, Dominick Martin, DJ Abstract, and Klute, who are primarily known for drum and bass production, showcase their techno talents on Palette. These artists along with tech veterans Titonton Duvante, The Rip Off Artist, and 11 year Tejada collaborator Arian Leviste, have given the label its fresh and unprecedented sound.
