When a label carries the same name as the artist behind it, you can
already assume artistically synchronized expressionism. This is the
case for Dimitri Schnider, alias Definition and his label of the same
For a little over five years Definition has been writing a Swiss Club
music story of success that is not the merit of a fleeting hype, but the

Last but not least, it was the great Darius Syrossian who immediately
recognized the potential slumbering in Definition Music and has released
productions on the label right from the start.
For the first five years he was not the only Great name to release on
Definition Music: Hector Couto, Josh Butler and Sidney Charles have also
brought sound material among the many affinite folks. All these pearls
