The two Italian brothers Lucio and Giuseppe Carpentieri share one passion: the love of Music. Under their Pseudonym “Lucio & Pep”, they started to produce their first tracks and soon their obvious talent was spotted by several labels. Followed releases on “Ware”, “Regular”, “Machine” and many others.
But that was not enough for the two ambitious siblings. As they specialized in the darker beats and focused on minimal, techno and tech-house, one aim was set: they wanted to run their own label, providing high-valiancy tunes and become the catchword in the minimal-, techno- and tech-house-scene.
On December 13th 2007, the first Release was available for purchase. Malatoid Records was born. In the following months many releases saw the light of the day, creating a lot of fuzz. As a result even the bigger and already well-established Tech-Producers became curious about this new and upcoming record label.
Big producers like Mathias Shaffhaeuser, Citizen Kain, Arnaud Le Texier, Jaumetic, Falko Brocksieper, Pheek, Haito, And.id, Alex Kenji, Gary Beck, Alex Piccini, MiniCoolBoyz and many others started to work with Malatoid Records, through which they helped the young label make its’ name.
But Malatoid Records outstands also due to the success of its releases: Seismal Ds’ EP Monkey Size, released on the 2nd June 2008, featured the Track Seismal D – Komnat, which jumped twenty days later on place 2 of the Beatport minimal chart. About one month later, Malatoid Records bursts out another success. Featured on the Malatoid Select Album released on the 22nd July 2008, the track Alex Piccini – Panzer gains an important amount of popularity: Nick Fanciulli, Format:B, Pan-Pot, Heinrichs & Hirtenfeller and Andrea Doria list it on their charts! Monque’s EP I’m a Jazzman, released on the 30th June 2009, has its own success story. In fact it occupied the first place on the Juno Progressive House Bestseller Chart.
