About Tarantic Records
Tarantic Records releases and promotes house music of all varieties. While the label’s releases have primarily focused on deep house, tech house, dubby and tribal house, Tarantic also ventures in to the realms of techno and progressive house on occasion.
"Tarantic Records" was founded by San Francisco's house music pioneer DJ Blackstone and DJ/producer Amit Shoham. Blackstone and Amit began producing music together in 1995 under the “Disciples of Johnny Mojo” monkier. After an offer by DJ Sneak to sign the duo's track "Johnny Mojo's Theme," fell through, Blackstone and Amit decided to release the record on their own. The label got its start in 1998 under the name "House of Stone Records," and "Johnny Mojo's Theme" was released under the House of Stone label. House of Stone was renamed "Tarantic Records" in early 1999.
The word "tarantism" means "a dancing mania." It stems from old Italian mythology and tradition: in southern Italy, when a person was bitten by a tarantula, (or thought they were bitten by a tarantula) they would go into a trance-like fit of dancing in order to sweat out the toxins. The name "Tarantic Records" therefore fit perfectly for a young label looking to make people everywhere dance uncontrollably.
Since the label’s inception Tarantic’s releases have featured artists such as DJ Adnan, Jay Tripwire, and Jay-J, in addition to label founders DJ Blackstone and Amit Shoham’s solo projects and their collaborations as the Disciples of Johnny Mojo.
