Half Is Enough

“The holy trinity: online radio, webzine, record label.”

“Old cassette tapes and records with Boney M, Abba, Elvis, Modern Talking and Bee Gees. Then in the mid-90s’ I had a pirate radio broadcasting death metal and doom metal. Then came MTV Amp, which gave me the electronic music baptism.

Sharing is caring, I guess. Whatever track puts me in a certain state of mind, regardless of the emotions it triggers, I am pretty sure there are at least 10 people out there that feel the same. Apparently, there are more, around 8000 monthly, listening to Half Is Enough Radio.”

Specialising in discerning electronic music, its roots lie in Romanian sounds, though it’s equally inspired by music from much further afield. Relaunched in 2020, the site hosts relevant news and music features and attracts a clued-in, knowledgable music-obsessed reader.”

“I have a strong passion for electronic music itself. It’s my hobby, but I take it very seriously. I respect all the labels and all the artists because I know there is a lot of hard work behind a good release/mix. What makes me promote this music is the unique vibe I get when I listen to a good record. I’ve always felt like my mission is to cheer up the people around me, so I found a way to do it with music. I’m addicted to music, and I can’t call it a day if I don’t listen to at least one record.”

Rayzeh is about vibration… about life, energy and the power of providing delightful sound experiences… For us every track that we choose is special because every track is a part of us. Its a beautiful feeling to know that our selections are being listened to and also discovered by other musical maniacs like us.”

A couple of years ago, Luka saw a facebook post showing a Romanian minimal track, and he instantly fell in love with it… from there, he started digging every day this kind of music style and artists. After some time, he decided to create a YouTube channel and share his findings… it’s beautiful to share your emotions and feelings with other people, and it’s a unique feeling when you see people appreciate your music taste.

A beautiful journey started back in 2019 when the founder of Rayzeh, Luka meets one of the most unknown and underrated producers from Romania called Mulov.
For almost one year they shared their favourite tracks, their favourite artists and their favourite feelings… it’s beautiful how our electronic Romanian scene brought them together. 

After some time Mulov decided to create his own label being much easier to release and provide the people with some beautiful musical sensations.
With the help of Luka, they successfully upload the 1st wonderground album on his channel and the response was very positive from the public.

Trying to be as selective as possible they decided that together they are a much stronger force than on their own so they unified since 2020 and they promise to provide you with a captivating next level sound experience.

Storytellers is an online platform and a record label from Bucharest dedicated to the promotion of Romanian electronic music with an echo for the minimal house subgenre. The project was launched in 2016, having as its origin and foundation a genuine friendship between two mates who started clubbing almost every weekend driven by curiosity and passion for this new chapter in their lives called – microhouse

It started as a strong idea of ​​the “micro-phenomenon” and the huge admiration and discovery of Romanian artists in the places where history was written – the famous Bucharest clubs “Eden” and “GH” (Popa Nan 82) being like a second home for us. We were filming and capturing the essence of the Romanian sound in all ways possible. Among the first posts was a snippet from a party with Barac – to our surprise, many people and labels reacted very well and liked that our uploads had emotion and a story behind them. 

That’s how the name for our project came naturally – storytellers. It was a huge motivation for two fellow IT engineers who spend their time and energy during the day making a decent living and training their minds at night through the heart of the minimal groove, filming and capturing every moment and streaming it to our close friends. The community idea quickly took off. Our discipline and proof of concept taken from the IT environment helps us build storytellers what it is today.

Content: We focused on delivering a limited number of songs per week, based on a personal selection and flavour, which will ultimately create a unique signature of the channel so that our community can easily identify the emotion of the storytelling.

With the support of our close collaborators and friends, we have around 1300 videos uploaded with a frequency of 3040 videos per month. During the pandemic, we noticed that the music scene required a lot more support, so we have made an effort to publish more than usual and try to help as much as possible. 

Recently we wanted to diversify our content and make it more engaging, therefore we launched a brand-new section of recorded video sets called „Rewired Story.

Rewired sets are particularly interesting because once people play them, they can recreate the party mood in their homes. It really becomes a gateway for lots of people who miss socializing and enjoying music, especially during these tough times.

UFO Beats

UFO Beats is a YouTube platform that was launched in 2015. and have since uploaded numerous great tracks and releases, thus supporting various independent artists and labels over the years and becoming an important actor for the minimal/deep house music scene worldwide. It mostly relies on the only vinyl releases and independent digital music.”

Mislav is the founder. He is a digger and collector, a passionate listener. Marcel and Josip, aka Bronski, are well-known DJs in Croatia. Both of them tend to play minimal/deep house most of the time. It is pretty simple actually, all of us have a deep passion for digging and selecting quality music, then we like to promote it via our channel, and later on play the music in the clubs and festivals. .”

Verzila YouTube channel created from passion and love for this genre of music on 17 February 2008 to have my favourite music remote everywhere. The channel was growing its audience in the past years, but I still ignore it and use it as a remote music player.

After a few transformations in the past years, the final form of the channel was around 2016, where I implemented the request uploads by email. It worked in the same way in those days, but in 2020 I added the SoundCloud premieres, and I also post everything I upload on my Instagram page.

The Channel is not monetized, It’s all about sharing good music and promoting talented artists. All tracks are uploaded upon agreement with the owners for promotional purposes only.

“One of the oldest techno music channels still active in helping artists with slightly louder names in the technical music techno.”

Frequent labels & artists: I’m not very interested in the name as much as the work itself. I sort out requests that I think are worth promoting. A more understandable answer would be: there is no exclusivity on the Verzila channel. It doesn’t matter how good the artist’s or label’s name is or not. If the music is good, it deserves to reach the ears of other listeners.
