Phraktal, an electronic music band from Ireland, has gained a reputation for their unique production capabilities that blend sci-fi-inspired electronica soundscapes with deep melodic house and techno. Their debut album, “Why 1 is One and 2 is Two,” released in 2015, was met with widespread acclaim and garnered support from radio stations, DJs, and producers across the globe, including Charlie May, John Digweed, Sam Paganini, Maceo Plex, Kolsch, Paco Osuna, Eats Everything, and Danny Tenaglia.
Phraktal’s talents have allowed him to work with some of the most legendary names in the electronic music industry in his now 30-year career. Including Prince, Farley Jack Master Funk, Orlando Voorn, Damon Wild, Jamez and even Paul Van Dyk in the mid-90s.
As a live act, they performed for the first time at Body & Soul Festival in Ballinlough Castle, sharing the stage with acts such as Massive Attack, The Prodigy, NERD, John Hopkins, and DJ Koze. Their second album, “Nightwalk,” released in 2021 on Limbo Records, showcased their continued evolution as a band. Their latest release, “Cosmic Soundscapes Vol. One” takes listeners on an interstellar journey through their imaginative soundscapes.
Phraktal is also the editor of Technoscene web magazine and hosts a monthly podcast of Digitally Imported.
PaperHeart came from the idea that we needed music to go with future video projects. What actually transpired was a selection of productions that became an album which fit the original idea of a city scape changing around us and what that sound might feel like.
To have a successful electronic music record label, there are a few key strategies that we have followed. First, we thought it was important to focus on finding and signing talented artists creating innovative and exciting music. This has helped us build a strong roster of artists and a reputation for quality within the electronic music community.
Another important strategy we found, was to establish strong relationships with key industry players, such as music distributors, streaming platforms, and other record labels. This has helped us to get our music in front of a larger audience and make it easier for your artists to reach new fans.
In addition, we used marketing consultants, who advised us it was important to have a clear branding and marketing strategy in place. This helped us to differentiate our label from others in the market and create a strong identity that resonates with our target audience. This included creating a visually compelling website and social media presence and regularly releasing promotional materials and content to keep our label in mind with fans.
Finally, staying ahead of industry trends and staying flexible and adaptable were also important for success. This meant keeping an eye on new technologies and platforms and being willing to pivot and try new things to stay relevant and engaging to our audience.

Christian and I have worked together in some capacity since 2004. At the time I owned Spundae Reckords and he was an artist looking to find a home for his music. As it turned out, we ended up as studio mates where he lead production. Since then, we've partnered on our own label, Omnis Recordings. Chris is, by far, one of the soundest gentleman in the industry I have come to work with and plan to work with indefinitely.Jon Ojeda
