Originally the brainchild of Berlin tech-house veterans M.A.N.D.Y., Booka Shade, and DJ T., Get Physical Music has been going strong for a full decade. In fact, Winter Music Conference 2012 marks the label's tenth anniversary, as well as its return to Miami for yet another highly anticipated annual showcase. But it also marks a new chapter for Get Physical.
"After Booka Shade and DJ T. left the label one and a half years ago, it was time to restructure everything and put the label on solid feet again," M.A.N.D.Y.'s Philipp Jung says. And though a ten-year anniversary might call for an over-the-top celebration, the crew is keeping this an intimate affair. "We decided to go smaller and more intimate again — it's just more fun and more direct," Jung explains. "I am very happy about the DJs we have on board too.
