Zenon Records was founded in 2003 by Sensient. The Zenon sound can be described as “deep and intelligent minimal/electronica with strong lashings of musicality and futuristic sound design”. The sound is distinct and has infiltrated the electronic dance music scene worldwide, with our artists representing on some of the biggest stages in the world. With its massive roster of talented artists and Djs from around the world, the Zenon collective will continue to grow and inspire each other to take it to the next level.
Sourone (Michal Kalinowski) is a one person musical project focused on widely understood electronic music . His fascination with electronic music took from a young age, but he started production in 2005. Since then, he’s in love with sequences ,envelopes and automations. His work is characterized by two poles. The first revolves around a progressive minimal and tech trance, which seeks to draw from the various, sometimes very different forms like dubstep, electro, and even amen d’n’b . Very easy to notice his fascination with glitch. In this matter Sourone had an honor to release on compilations on some bigger labels. The second pole of his music is melodic, broken electronics – idm, minimal dnb. from this side u can feel his distinctive flow, but the form itself is different from the opposite pole. “evil” factor and the dark harmony is replaced by the light side. The two poles are inspired by each other, and sometimes penetrating through synergy, new ideas and new sounds. Also as Enoruos – his side project – he is creating abstract and melodic experimental . Sourone launched his live act in 2008 when he played his first live performance. Since then he had opportunity to appear on lotsa line ups.

Fabio was the first brazilian invited to join the artist cast of australian label Zenon Records. He had been supporting and promoting the Zenon style of progressive for some time already, so the invitation helped him further advance the label in his country.
His dj set is composed of fresh unreleased material as well as released gems from the present and past, played with an impeccable mixing technique over an interesting equipment setup. Fabio believes that combining the creative potential of digital technologies with the richness of analog circuits allows him to go deeper into his own interpretation of Zenon Records, blending elements from other styles of music, such as the hypnotic drum patterns of techno.
This peculiar way of playing led him to be recognized all over Brazil and get bookings for many relevant open air parties and festivals. He has also been touring internationally, having been invited to play at some of the most respected gatherings such as Boom Festival (PT), Freqs of Nature (GER), Lost Theory (ES), Tree of Life (TK), Rainbow Serpent Festival (AU), Earth Frequency (AU), Universo Paralello (BR), S.U.N. Festival (HU) and more.
Fabio also released a compilation on Zenon Records called “A Push Forward” featuring tracks from Ryanosaurus, Hefty, Florian MSK & Kliment, Electrypnose, Sensient, Hellquist, Hypogeo, Quantic Devices and Kromagon, some of his favorites artists in the label.

Sensient is one of the true innovators of the scene. He is the man behind Zenon Records – the label which spawned its own genre (Zenonesque). As owner/manager of Zenon Records, Sensient has access to the freshest of the fresh music from the entire roster of Zenon artists.
The prime selector for all Zenon Records output brings these same fine selection skills to his DJ sets. He is known for his 3 hour + journey DJ sets that move from psy-techno all the way through to pumping psy-prog. Performing his Dj sets from Ableton with an impressive set up of effects and controllers, the Sensient Dj set is guaranteed to deliver the absolute cutting edge of the Zenon sound.
On top of his work with Zenon Records he has also released 8 solo albums, countless compilation tracks and has made remixes for some big names in the scene including Boris Brechja, Ace Ventura, Symbolic and Perfect Stranger.
Seeking new creative opportunities and experiences, Sensient made the move from Australia to Berlin in 2013, spending three years being influenced by the sights and sounds of that artistically forward-thinking city. Now based again in Australia, you can expect his pristine, deep and futuristic sets to take you into a spacious and science fiction like realm.
Sensient has toured the world many times over and in process played at some of the biggest international festivals including Boom, Ozora, Voov, Universo Parallelo, Glade, Rainbow Serpent, Sonica, Fusion and many more…
