Vier Sterne Deluxe was founded as a music project in 2011 by DJ Kaito (Simon Bohnsack) and DJ Sheldon (Max H.).
"Vier Sterne Deluxe Reords" as a Labe was introduced in 2012 with the release of "DJ Kaito Nr.1", cause Simon thought that every tape or album need a Lable, so he created one out of his music project. Sometimes short forms like VSDeluxe Records or just VSD were used on the releases.
With the title "6 October (Tag der Nation)", DJ Kaito created the successful song in the history of Vier Sterne Deluxe Records in 2012, currently with more than 10,000 views on YouTube and more than 3,000 mostly free downloads.
In October of 2016 we partnered with the downloadplatform INICAT. The DISS EP by DJ Kaito skyrocked to Nr.1 of
the INICAT charts at release and stayed a few weeks in the top 5.
In December 2016 we partnered with CDBaby for putting future releases of our artists on mature platforms like Itunes, Amazon and Spotify, also they made our CDs availeble in the USA and other places in the World.
After one year, in January 2018, we made the first deals with Record and CD stores for distributing the CDs our artists in Germany by our selfs. In the year more stores partnered with us and in late 2018 we expanded to the Netherlands.
Today we got 15 own partner stores and reach 10.000+ stores arround the world with our disribution partners.
This is not just a saying, but a promise.
With us, the music is recorded independently in the in-house studio, edited and mixed. The music videos are also produced in-house.
Where others stop at this point and leave the rest to others, we go one step further: we produce our CDs ourselves - in painstaking manual work.
To save the
environment, a large part of the parts for the finished CDs consists of second-hand goods, which must pass a strict test for reusability.
Each CD is also individually checked for playability after completion, to ensure 100% that it also runs perfectly. Also we denight to wrap the CDs do to the waste of plastic.
We also coordinate the marketing (at least in Europe). For other countries (for example USA) and the digital distribution CDBaby and Alliance Entertaiment supports us actively.
