We are kicking off 2014 with a rash of new label signings!

Alala:
Alala is the latest label from legendary DJ Bobbito Garcia, known primarily for his radio show on WKCR-NY 89.9 FM in the 90s on which he broke some of today’s most well known hip-hop artists alongside partner Stretch Armstrong.  Alala is Bobbito‘s third imprint after running Fruitmeat Records and founding and operating the iconic Fondle ‘Em label.

 

2000black:
2000black is the solo label venture from Dego – one half of legendary production duo 4hero. Instrumental in the drum & bass and broken beat scene, Dego continues to push boundaries.

 

Idle Hands:
Idle Hands  were born from the Bristol record shop of the same name. Idle Hands releases forward thinking house and techno music with a strong Bristol bias.

 

Uno NYC:
Exploding all notions of what an electronic dance music label can or should do, UNO casually reveres certain conventions while completely doing away with others. Releasing everything from forward-thinking house and techno 12”s from Jacques GreeneThe Twilite Tone and Aquarian to slippery-tongued rap from Mykki Blanco to deconstructed alien R&B and garage from Arca and Kuhrye-oo.

 

Fields:
Fields is the London-based label headed up by techno/electonica artist Max Cooper. The label is used as a platform for emerging talent such as Ghosting Season and Asteriods, and a number of releases from Max himself. We’ll be working on Max’s debut album so keep an eye out for more on that in the coming months!

 

Electronic Explorations:
Electronic Explorations is the label to the long running podcast series helmed by Rob Booth, also A&R behind Fabric’s Houndstooth label. Since 2007 the podcast has featured emerging talent that has gone on to break out on a big scale – the likes of James Blake, Mount Kimbie and FaltyDL had early plays on the show.

 

Peripheral Records:
Founded in 2011, Peripheral Records is a experimental/industrial noise label out of Bristol UK. Releasing records by prolific artists such as Maurizio Bianchi, Con-Dom, Alter of Flies, and many others – this is definitely one to watch.
