Since the early days of electronic music, white label records have been inextricably linked to DJ culture and the ways in which underground music has been disseminated. unknown - untitled draws on the white label concept withholding details about the producers behind the tracks and leaving listeners to draw their own conclusions about what they’re hearing.

The concept label focuses primarily on vinyl releases, with previews of the tracks available online, but information about the artists only to be found within the record sleeve itself. The roster ranges from new and emerging producers to more established artists looking to explore new sounds.

Picking up where they left off, the fourth release on the label is a powerhouse of mind melting, UK-flavoured, twisted techno-not-techno and breaks. Intricate rhythms, chest rumbling sub bass and deft samples destined for a heavyweight club system. With online personas often eclipsing the focus on music itself, here lies a return to form. 

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Really diggin' this series so far - not least due to it's 'no presumptions' ethos. It's delivering some seriously underground sounds whilst avoiding falling victim to its own hype. Constantly keeping us on our toes and having it right off in the club. Recommended!

Going three for three, the label’s third release is a triple threat of heavyweight, club-ready warpers that effortlessly marry toughness, intricacy and emotion. With online personas often eclipsing the focus on music itself, here lies a return to form.

Step By Step / Creative Source

The inaugural release of the newly minted Smugglers Way label, these two anonymous cuts bear the mark of a master’s touch: “Step By Step” is a hypnotic summer anthem featuring a singular majestic vocalist, and “Creative Source” has the familiar euphoric rush of a perfectly uplifting 70s R&B/disco sample chopped hot and filtered nice n spicy.

If you dug that Wreckin’ Havoc 12” from a few weeks ago – this un’s 4 U!

Limited copies.

Lapis Lazuli EP

25 years after this cult UK label first emerged, the brains behind the bangers are here to hip a new generation to these enduring and essential club weapons - remastered and hand-stamped for 2021.
Primitive represented a stripped down and sonically heavyweight series of essential DJ tools, winning wide support from Techno an House DJ's alike & enduring - perhaps due to their raw, basic construction - way beyond their original inception. 

On PRIM03, the mysterious producer leads us into psychedelic territories with a winding narcotic opener, garbled alien A2, pinging, zinging and subaquatic B1 and steppy insectile B2. All killer no filler folks.

The 4th release from jungalist / hardcore revival label Bring Back Records and the cult label doesn't disappoint with three tracks of high end rude boi business.

"Night Selector" is pure '93-era badness, with a stretched Amen powering through atmospheres and bells - big vibe in the place when this one drops massive.

"Light In The Ghetto" switches tact straight into break-hardcore territory, endorphine-rushing, sped-up female vox, deep pads and a Prodigy-styled rave line. One for the original Bowlers / Dreamscape cru....

Finally, "Lobster P" is a frenzied, Jeep-friendly jungle roller with rumbling subs, assault rifle beats and wild leads. When the drums fully launch their attack there's nowhere to hide! 


STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Trunk rumblin' jeep business straight outta mid 90s UK here as the excellent Bring Back label revisit another classic bit of heritage and replicate in authentic style. All the massive!
