Techno duo Igor Tchkotoua and Dan Duncan - better known as Pig&Dan - have launched their own label, Elevate. Their recent productions and remixes for labels like Bedrock, Mesmeric, Soma, Suara and Tronic have been built around dubby, chunky techno and tech-house grooves. A versatile sound that the duo will thoroughly explore with their new imprint. 'We are at a good point as artists, and I think it's time to try to push a new sound.' Duncan tells DJ Mag USA, preparing for the inevitable pun. 'The only way is up.' Pig&Dan kick off Elevate in mid-November 2012 with the Savage EP. Savage is an immense melodic roller that really shows where we want to go with this label. For Duncan, Elevate's mission is clear. 'It's always come down to consistency, and that's our aim with the new label. We want to build a name that's recognizable and holds a quality that we hope people can rely on.'
