Stil vor Talent Shop - Berlin


Thanks to your support and open-mindedness, Stil vor Talent has continuously enabled, fostered and furthered the artistic paths of countless musicians since 2005. Looking back over the past 19 years, Township Rebellion, Reinier Zonneveld, Klangkuenstler or HVOB are just a few of many names that link to Oliver Koletzki’s Berlin-Kreuzberg-based label. Next to crossover excursions into pop culture, exemplified by the smash hit ‘Hypnotized’, Stil vor Talent is known for its DIY-attitude, graphic design, booking roster and musical diversity, which spans from mystic organic house to heady electronica and floor-shaking techno.

Aside from a steady flow of EPs – aimed directly at the dance floor and often giving young talent a platform – SVT put an early focus on the album format in a catalogue that's over 350 releases deep. While Oliver Koletzki's tenth studio album 'Trip to Sanity' was a recent highlight, artists like Hidden Empire, HVOB or Cioz have explored the joys of an extended format with particularly impressive results.

Needless to say, this colourful mix of music created many magic moments at countless parties – Stil vor Talent’s main driving force. With showcases at Amsterdam's ADE, Barcelona's Off Sonar, Tulum's Mia, London's Steelyard, Istanbul's Klein Phönix or for Boiler Room Berlin as well as festival gigs at MELT!, Fusion or Burning Man, SVT is a continuous presence at electronic music's top events. In Berlin the enchanting Lindwerder Island, an industrial backyard on May Day or Kreuzberg venues Ritter Butzke and Sage Beach have hosted a diverse set of label parties. Outside the capital, SVT's open airs throughout Germany and beyond welcomed heavy-weight guests like Sven Väth, Kölsch or Andhim. Meanwhile, regular mid-week Instore Sessions or street open airs for Fete de la Musique at the SVT HQ have been a chance to touch base with Berlin's club community in more intimate, free-of-charge settings.

Whether on stages big or small, Stil vor Talent's diverse roster of exceptional talent is the motor that moves our passion. While acts like HOVR, Konfusia, Kotoe, Fabian Krooss or SKALA reflect a new generation pushing a rainbow of contemporary sounds, they stand shoulder to shoulder – and at times back-to-back – with longterm companions and legends of the scene Madmotormqiuel, Kellerkind, Moonwalk and Yetti Meißner.

After the recent milestone that was Oliver Koletzki's "Trip to Sanity" Live Concert Tour, Stil vor Talent is now set to celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2025 with a wave of special releases, community-focussed projects and global showcases, excitedly looking towards the future while toasting to a rich history at the forefront of electronic music. To the next 20 years!
