Furthermore, we will be helping STEIM. STEIM (STudio for Electro Instrumental Music) is a center for research and development of new musical instruments in the electronic performing arts, located in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Electronic music in STEIM's context is always strongly related to the physical and direct actions of a musician. In this tradition, STEIM supports artists in residence such as composers and performers, but also multimedia and video artists to develop setups which allow for improvisation and performance with individually designed technology. The name of the label is inspired on Dick Raaymakers Nachtmuziek.

We are honoured to present a remix compilation of Peixe:Avião and :Papercutz, featuring artists such as Roel Funcken (Funckarma), Sima Kim
André Covas, José Figueiredo e Pedro Oliveira, Ronaldo Fonseca e Luís Fernandes, músicos que já contavam, a tenra idade, com vários projectos musicais e muita experiência.
Editaram, em 2007, o Ep “Finjo a Fazer de conta”, que lhes valeu excelentes críticas da imprensa especializada e muita expectativa para o primeiro disco.
Os peixe : avião conseguiram captar rapidamente a atenção de um público considerável para um projecto estreante, através da internet, no myspace e nos seus primeiros concertos. A celeridade do crescimento levou também ao convite para integrar a colectânea "Novos Talentos FNAC 2008".
Em 2008 é editado “40.02”, álbum de estreia. "40.02" permitiu à banda continuar a crescer e conseguir mais visibilidade, através da passagem dos singles "a espera é um arame" e "camaleão" pelas rádio nacionais e de concertos por todo o país, entre os quais o Festival Super Bock em Stock 2008 e o 10º aniversário da FNAC em Portugal, no Pavilhão Atlântico. "40.02" foi também um sucesso junto da crítica, tendo figurado nas várias listas de melhores discos do ano. Foi considerado o disco do ano para a RUC, RUM e o 5º disco de 2008 para os leitores da revista Blitz.
Depois da reedição do primeiro EP em vinil/CD, a banda oferece-nos “Madrugada”, o seu segundo trabalho. O disco permaneceu 5 semanas do Top Nacional da AFP, chegando à 11ª posição em Outubro de 2010.
Em 2013 a banda edita o seu disco homónimo, com uma sonoridade mais suJa e crua.
Roel Funcken is part, together with his brother Don Funcken, of the Dutch collective Funckarma, notorious for their bass heavy groove filled IDM and experimental approach to all forms of electronic music. Since 1995 their prolific output under various names has found them homes on labels around the world, from Warp to n5md, Skam to !K7 and many more . Always forging new sounds in their constant sonic evolution, they’re breaking into the dubstep and DnB scenes as well, bringing their own unique form to these ever shifting landscapes while staying true to what built their fanbase .
Sima Kim is a South Korean music producer, composer and multi-instrumentalist. He began studying music at the age of 18 and, after being heavily inspired by modern and contemporary classical music from the west, studied musicology. When he started to compose, several renowned international labels released his music and he has appeared on compilations by Future Sequence, Mu-Nest, Rural Colours, Young Gifted and Wack and Unknown Tone Records, Soft Corridor and so on.
Sima’s main interests are the state of mindfulness between the sound of notes and silence with heavy use of these ideas during live performances and studio recordings. Until 2014, Sima Kim had made a post-classical/ambient/drone, but he has since turned to beat music influenced by future beats, the beat scene and trap from his latest EP ‘Ur Silhouette’.
Following 2 years of touring Japan, Sima began to incorporate influences from the evolving beat scene in the east to his organic sounds of acoustic instrumentation to create a unique blend of tonal and rhythmical minimalism.
Sima Kim is also a collaborator and member of the Subbeat Crew in South Korea. He is now located in Den Haag (Holland).
Nachtstück Records is a label that was created with a commitment to philantropic endeavours. throughout 5 years, we donated 1000 euros to charity and moved people to do the same for us and within ourselves.
