The House of PR Records

PR Records started in 2007 to promote homegrown EDM and dance talent from Swedish soil, with DJ/producer/owner Patrik Remann leading the way. The label quickly expanded to neighboring Scandinavian countries and an international roster focused on house, EDM, R&B, and pop.

Sweden is one of the world’s biggest exporters of music. At its peak, the country was the third-largest music exporter in the world—right after the USA and the UK. A wide range of music such as pop hits, EDM & minimal techno reach masses worldwide, all the way from the Nordic hit machine.

PR Records rides that wave for over a decade now. “A lot of Swedes are creating worldwide dance hits now,” says founder Patrik Remann. “With PR Records, we always want to create something better; not copying old stuff. Instead, developing artists and new styles of music. We have found and started some careers on PR Records such as John de Sohn, Vigiland, and Swedish EDM artists like Alesso Facchetti.” But the free download of PR records is actually not an electronic song, but a reggae acappella—in Swedish.

"(...) Also for labels: share your music and others make new great music out of it… I think this is the future!”

—Patrik Remann

We’ve seen the use of Tracklib samples in multiple other dance tracks, such as in Mike Mago’s “Wake Up” and The Him’s “By Your Side”, both built around a vocal sample. The same goes for Patrik: “For me, it’s usually a piece of vocal that is sampled in small bits or longer phrases. If you do it right, you can build something really great out of it. You can make a melody out of a word or a sound out of a sentence.”

That’s where Tracklib enters the equation. Not only for him as a DJ/producer, but also for PR Records as a label: “I have always liked sampling. But I want [samples] to be cleared, and now that’s really easy via Tracklib. Also for labels: share your music and others make new great music out of it… I think this is the future!”
