Affin

About

Affin is an independent music label that was founded in 2007 by Joachim Spieth. Since then, it has made a name for itself internationally with numerous publications ranging between deep hypnotic techno and ambient. Born out of the idea of building a space away from the conventions of the commercial music industry, Affin has developed into a platform that is able to inspire and stands for authenticity, far away from tailor-made marketing concepts.

In 2022, the label will celebrate its 15th anniversary with a series of releases as well as some surprises that will be announced during the year.
