For electronic music enthusiasts, especially the techno-inclined, R&S Records is one of those “it” labels. Founded in Ghent, Belgium in 1984 by couple Renaat Vandepapeliere and Sabine Maes, R&S boasts releases from titans in the scene such as Aphex Twin, Derrick May, Joey Beltram, James Blake, and many more.
