Hailing from harbor town Rotterdam, Clone was founded in 1993. Almost 20 years later the label, record store, and distribution are one of the foremost key players in the Dutch electronic music scene, still driven by the modest Serge. “At home in the living room I never listen to music, I don't even have a sound equipment,” he says while drinking his tea – with milk and sugar.
