Your 5 fav non-dubstep labels...and why?

Post by dudeski » Sat Sep 30, 2006 1:33 pm

mine:

1. Mo' Wax (the amount of fat records released on this label is absolutely ridiculous. I'm not into collecting full back catalogues of labels, but sometimes they leave me no other option 8) )

2. Metalheadz (same as above, but i'm not feeling everything they've released recently. The long shelf life is a plus)

3. Phil L.A. of Soul (pretty unknown 60s/70s label that released a shitload of great funk and northern soul 7" singles. And i LOVE 7" singles. Most of the originals are still reasonably piced, so easy to pick up with my small student budget.)

4. Def Jux (RJD2's releases alone make this a must for me. Also a large amount of wicked rap albums like I phantom and Cold Vein)

5. Stones throw (MADVILLAIN!)

Deserved to make it in the list, but didn't: XL, DC, Ninja Tune, Outcaste, a handful of old jazz labels, a handful of old soul labels. Maybe when i'm doing a top-10 once...

I can't really think of five labels out of my head, but the get physical stuff is hilariously good. The perfect antidote for all that so-called dark music, get me.

All current European dance stuff for me really.

Kompakt - because Koln minimal is the shit.
Mobilee - Because Pan-Pot and Anja Schneider make really interesting hooky minimal.
Cadenza - For Ricardo Villalobos' Achso alone, nevermind the excellent Luciano releases.
Vakant - Alex Smoke's Paradolia is one of the most interesting and cool techno albums of the year.
Perlon - The Superlongevity compilations are killers. Also because I like the sleeve design.

Don't think that I've ever found a label that always puts out good tunes consistently. Or artists to be honest.

I am the fickle public
Hmm....

Yeah, pretty special. Great atmosphere. So dense, layered like an onion. The shimmering strings are amazing.

Hmmm.... thought they were dead and buried. They had a few large releases in their time though.

ANYWAY.

5 - Warp (for ball-rolling)
4 - Satamile (not a duff release yet - proper electro, none of this housey housey shit)
3 - Kranky (just plain miserable)
2 - Burial Mix (no intro needed)

...but first place has to go to Mute, for introducing me to:

Cabaret Voltaire, Sandoz/R.H. Kirk, Zoviet France, Luke Slater, Richie Hawtin, Suicide, Renegade Soundwave, Labradford, Laibach, Depeche Mode, Nitzer Ebb, Barry Adamson, Nick Cave, Panasonic, Joey Beltram, Si Begg and many many others.

Phew!
