Founded in Saint-Petersburg in 2005, Sun Station Records exists to provide a solid new media platform for the development of electronic music talent in Russia and beyond. Their sound is diverse; although psytrance is the focus, Sun Station also promotes new school Goa, progressive, downtempo, IDM, and other more experimental styles of music.
The label takes a flexible approach to releases: many are free to download in MP3 and lossless formats whereas others are commercially-available CDs. With releases by Pan Psychic, Manifold, Koan, Glooex, and Luminexia, Russian artists are heavily emphasized in their discography. Pan Psychic’s album We Are Not Who We Are has the distinction of being one of the most successful free psytrance releases ever made–with downloads of more than 35,000 copies.
