Polen Records started in 2006 to develop and promote a new Latin-American sound. Inspired by the www development and conceived with the help of Lucas Guingue, anthropologist and musician; producer Felipe Álvarez embarked in this adventure with the purpose of releasing music that didn’t seem to have a place in the market. Their first release: Los Días Adelante - The Days Ahead from Bajotierra, was a conceptual milestone.

The catalogue has been constructed with an artistic idea that seeks to maintain a line that reflects our pluri-cultural identity. From the atlantic coast came Bomba Estéreo, with their debut album Vol 1. (2006), and from the pacific coast, the celebretad “Somos Pacífico” from Chocquibtown (2007).

Among the artist that have been part of our label we can find cult bands like Bajotierra and Sidestepper; the singer Ella Fuksbrauner; the mystic recordings of Mucho Indio, Bomba Estéreo’s dance flor hits, the pioneer of the tropical electronic Pernett; the sweet calypso of Sol Okarina, the avant-garde music of Cero 39, Mitu and their techno from Palenque and last but not least the beautiful melodies of Mónica Giraldo.

“In Polen Records we give a special place to the music that we like, that thrills us, that makes us dance. Our goal is to develop new talent and work with people we respect, understanding our work as a collaborative effort to widen its audience”.

Polen Records is regarded as a reference label for independent music in Latin-America, releasing during this last years artist such as Bareto, Nortec Collective, Carla Morrison and recently Systema Solar.
