R.I.P. Pete Namlook

Very sad to hear the news of Pete Namlook‘s passing (aka Peter Kuhlmann) artist and founder of the Fax +49-69/450464 label from Germany. Back in the early 90′s a lot of his releases were very big in both Telepathic Fish and my early Solid Steel sets through his hook up with Rising High in the UK.

All his label sleeves had a distinctive house style for many years and were colour-coded to alert the buyer to the music contained within. I even laid out a sleeve for one of his releases once, a debut album by a young kid, just out of school called Daniel Pemberton – I wonder what happened to him?

  1. Very sad news. When asked if I won the whole of a labels output which label would I choose, I always say Fax.

  2. That was a sad day indeed… his impact was huge…

    Regarding Daniel Pemberton, I believe he went on to do music for films/tv ( I still play his remix of MLO’s Wimborne… what did he release on Fax???

  3. Yeah I’m well aware of what Daniel went on to do Quentin, he’s quite a star of TV and film soundtracks these days, that was my litte joke ;)
