It’s hard to believe that Visionquest is in the midst of celebrating five strong years in operation as a record label.

In 2011, what was originally a collective of like-minded and individually talented musicians, Visionquest decided to transform their personal accomplishments and prowess as a studio ensemble into an imprint that has since gone on to represent releases by new and now well known talents such as Benoit and Sergio, Tale of Us, Chaim, Laura Jones, and remixes from techno and house stalwarts like Ricardo Villalobos, Carl Craig, and Pepe Bradock.

Visionquest 5

This coming Saturday, the trio composed of Ryan Crosson, Shaun Reeves and Lee Curtiss is set to touch down in Los Angeles for a specially curated 5 Year Anniversary Party that features all three on decks alongside guests Daniel Bell and John Tejada. The event, organized by local promoters Underrated Presents and taking place at the Downtown Globe Theatre, is set to highlight the type of atmosphere and music that has made Visionquest’s label one of the most respected in the electronic music industry: “slow-burning, shape-shifting, expansive techno and house marked by compositional elegance and unabashed pop hooks.”

Tickets are available on Resident Advisor and full info on the event can be found on Facebook.

We had the chance to chat with Ryan ahead of this special night, to talk a little about the past, present and future of Visionquest.

Visionquest’s 50th Release with Shaun Reeves and Tuccillo

Seclusion Banner

For the past five years Visionquest has played a major role in shaping the musical landscape that we enjoy today. Many artists have contributed to the catalog, and for the 50th release Visionquest founder, Shaun Reeves, has teamed up with Tuccillo to deliver serious dance floor material.

Seclusion is a three track EP loaded with melodic grooves that Reeves and Tuccillo know so well. The EP features two original tracks from the two artists, and includes a dubby minimal cut from German producer, Dorian Paic. Seclusion is an excellent release that encompasses the Visionquest sound, and will certainly find it’s way into DJ playlists for months to come.

You can preview the entire Seclusions EP below, with the release being available May 17th
