On a Saturday night you might find yourself in a dark, smoky club, dancing until your clothes are soaking wet, but somewhere else in the world someone is cutting down a tree in a rainforest at the same time. A red car crashes into a lamppost and a girl with curly hair falls deeply in love with a Japanese mailman.
Something Happening Somewhere. The name of the record label founded by the DJ, producer and former Trouw resident Nuno dos Santos, residing in Utrecht, The Netherlands. “The name itself leaves a lot open for your own imagination. I want to release musical material from befriended producers, new talent and my own work on Something Happening Somewhere (SoHaSo).”
Having build up an impressive catalogue already, with music by Love over Entropy, Kiani & His Legion, Nuno dos Santos, Dixon, The Drifter, Kurt Baggaley and Sigward among others, SoHaSo is one of the most exciting young labels around. Reaching milestones with the two part SOMEWHERE compilation, their collaborative King Britt release with Lossless and Nuno dos Santos’ Trigonometry of Love EP in 2017, it keeps a high quality standard and promises a string of bold releases planned for the year to come. They continue to spread their love with notorious label showcases at Tivoli Vredenburg (Utrecht), De Marktkantine (Amsterdam) and Thuishaven (Amsterdam) and editions abroad at Corsica Studios in London, with the Fiction NYC crew in New York and at Überhaus in Beirut.

SoHaSo 011, Nuno dos Santos
Life often consists of finding a balance between the sweet, sour and bitter. Sometimes it can feel like walking a tightrope and at other times it’s a joyful experience of serendipity. Bending away from a course or position of alignment, the distance between yourself and the people close to you constantly shifts. If one of the distances changes, the others do so automatically. It requires a true maverick to fully experience, a brave soul that is willing to sacrifice and trade in the morality play for the entire chromatic spectrum. Do you think you will enter the garden of bliss without such trials as come to those who passed before you?
Something Happening Somewhere head honcho Nuno dos Santos is presenting his first and very personal EP on his label called Trigonometry of Love. After his Wibaut127 and a string of acclaimed remixes it’s time to let Nuno speak from the heart, being one of those souls who knows there is no reward without renunciation.
