dEN Records proudly announces one brand new adventorous release to be hopefully out on SEPTEMBER / 2014, if the wind hopefully blows in the right way ! ! !

This contemporary vocal duo will be the first dEN Kontemporary release which will be a different tirature CD serie.

Two voices and their bodily singing. An instant composing performance that hugs, regenerates and cuts into pieces the whole sound spectrum.

Contemporary poet’s scripts made out of a profane taste dressed up with ritual mysticism.

From the pre-vocal to the Gregorian chant, madrigal and the new Opera vocality, passing by Jazz rhythm, metal aggressions and ethno emissions.

Primordial and futuristic as well.

A journey between elegy and anxiety.

*(The H Y D R A release feat Dalila Kayros & Claudio Milano that was supposed to be the first dENk release will be out later this year due to some release schedule changing)


Whirl is a trio that features the legendary English reedist Tobias Delius (saxophone / clarinet) and the two young and active Norwegian improvisers Adrian Fiskum Myhr(double bass) and Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø (trombone).

dENk is proud to release their debut cd “Revolving rapidly around an axis”, that was recorded in Trondheim during a short tour of Norway last year.

It contains nine improvised pieces with music spanning from free fall improvisations to seemingly composed parts.

Whirl plays expressive improvised music where explosive free-jazz aesthetics are mixed with micro tonal timbral investigations in a way that allows silence and loudness to coexist.

Presented in Black JakeBox CD Format.

Ferrian’s NUTIMBRE to perform at UMBRIA JAZZ 2012
Nutimbre has been selected to perform at this annual Umbria Jazz festival on July/13!!! It’s a great honour to have a dEN Records recording artist to one of the most important italian Jazz festival.
The performance will take place at Giardini Carducci in Perugia at 16.00 in the afternoon. They’ll present their latest effort “Risk” plus some new compositions as well.


We’re proud to announce than Ken Vandermark is the Chicagoans of the Year 2012!!

“After the Chicago jazz icon Ken Vandermark learned he would be getting a $25,000 stipend for serving as this year’s artist in residence at the city’s annual Jazz Festival, his first thought wasn’t about the shiny new sax he could buy. Instead, he calculated how many European musicians he could bring to town to entertain the late-summer crowds that would gather at the Petrillo Music Shell in Grant Park.

Vandermark made a similar decision in 1999 when he won a $265,000 MacArthur “genius” grant. Just about every penny went to bringing jazz artists from around the globe to his adopted hometown of Chicago, which he calls “one of the most extraordinary places on the planet. It’s a really special city for music, completely unique—not just nationwide but globally.”

Since moving here in 1989, Vandermark, 48, has been—and remains—one of the biggest reasons for that. This year, with the Norwegian drummer Paal Nilssen-Love, he released a new CD, Letter to a Stranger (praised by one critic for “leaving no sonic stone unturned”). And he remains one of Chicago’s most distinguished cultural ambassadors, playing in clubs from London and Berlin to Tokyo before making his way back home to the city he loves. “Where else am I going to live to get the support I have for what I’m doing?” Vandermark asks. “It’s been amazing playing music [in Chicago] for two decades. And people still want to hear me!”
