basic tone brings together various music business units, all of which are dedicated to providing a platform for content-driven forms of musical expression.

These include Flying Eggs, a label for groove-driven music with a strong focus on experimental styles and interdisciplinarity. Further label foundations with other musical orientations are planned. (Find an overview of our label work -> link).

We also run the vinyl record store basic tone records, which caters to an audience of enthusiasts and collectors with an exquisite selection of second hand and new vinyl. (Find basic tone records here -> Link) 

As a service provider we also offer musicians the production of media content such as videos, photos and cover artwork as well as the joint planning and implementation of stage designs.

We strongly see basic tone as a contribution to the cultural infrastructure in Cologne. Events such as parties in partnership with the club JAKI as well as readings, listening sessions and DJ sets in our record store are therefore equally part of our portfolio.

>The network from the individual business areas of basic tone is to grow steadily and in the long term. Find us at Hansaring 94, 50670 Cologne, Germany.
