About Us

Sdban Records is an independent record label, obsessed with grooves based in Ghent, Belgium. The label started off as a sixties and seventies compilation and reissue label, with label boss Stefaan Vandenberghe’s impressive personal vinyl collection at its core. The very first release was a milestone right away. The acclaimed ’Funky Chicken: Belgian grooves from the seventies’ compiled the best funk tracks from the Belgian Seventies, a genre and era overlooked by many. The label also released reissues and retrospective compilations from the likes of André Brasseur, René Costy and Jack Sels.  After two years of digging dusty crates, Sdban broadens its horizon and started focusing on contemporary talent as well. Sdban Ultra is the sister label focusing on today’s lively jazz and funk scene, which is simply too exciting not to be explored. Bands on the roster are STUFF., ECHT!, Black Flower, Azmari, De Beren Gieren and more!
