There’s no sugar coating it–Colette Marino continues driving the future of dance music as she announces the launch of her new label, Candy Talk Records. A project more than 10 years in the making, Candy Talk will feature releases from a rotating cast of some of house music’s most venerable artists. And much like the nature of her live-performance DJ sets, Colette’s new label dials up a dynamic sound that defies the conventionalities of house music.

Ushering in the label’s arrival is producer Joshua Heath’s six-track EP “Call on Me,“ which features the production and remix talent of Chuck Love (Minneapolis, MN), Lawnchair Generals (Seattle, WA), Giano, (Selma, CA) and Sexual Chocolate (Chicago, IL). Steeped in beats of funk and jazz, “Call on Me” doubles with organic and electro grooves that she says embody the essence of the Candy Talk sound.

“As a DJ, I’m always on the lookout for music that inspires me–be it house, tech or electro,” the artist says. “I’d like my label to reflect the eclectic nature of my DJ sets, making its way everywhere from dark & dirty clubs to big ol’ shiny raves.”

Launching a label like Candy Talk has been on Colette’s radar since the release of her seminal DJ mix “Our Day” on Nettwerk Records in 2001. Since then, the classically trained singer/DJ/producer has gone on to win two U.S. Dancestar awards, performed as part of several international tours and released two full-length albums on San Francisco’s Om Records. Her Billboard charting singles “What Will She Do for Love” (2005), “IF” (2008) and Beatport 1 singles “Stay” (2009) and “Make Me Feel” (2009) have established her as one of dance music’s most dynamic stars.

Candy Talk, she says, will be no different. In addition to dishing out a limited number of digital releases per year, the label will pop audiences with a special edition vinyl pressing each December. Plans are already in the works for a nationwide, summer tour promoting the label and its first release, “Call on Me”–which includes everything from the grooving basslines of LCG’s “You Need Dub” mix to the squelchy, funk groove of the “Chuck Love Network Remix.”

Matthias Heilbronn’s DJ career started in the mid 80’s in his hometown of Bremen Germany. As one of Germany’s true house music pioneers, he soon secured residencies in top clubs of Berlin, Hamburg and Bremen. After moving to New York in ’89 he soon found himself playing for capacity crowds at such legendary NYC clubs as Palladium, Nell’s, Soundfactory Bar.

His ability to blend seamlessly between genres of electronic music, such as techno, minimal, tech house and straight up deep and classic house, mirrors that of his productions and has given him the reputation as one of the most diverse and interesting DJ’s in the circuit. Britain’s 7 Magazine described one of Heilbronn’s sets as a “spellbindingly eclectic set” where his “panoramic journey across often arbitrary musical genres, created a sense of New York, both past and present.”
