    1. DLR (Feat. ANT TC1 & FOKUS) - Seeing Sounds Album Part 2

      Following a string of successful label releases in a short period of time, DLR is ready to unleash his debut solo album on Dispatch Recordings, entitled ‘Seeing Sounds’. Having previously collaborated with Octane on the ‘Method In The Madness’ album, DLR has quickly established his own signature sound; an instantly recognizable groove mischievously poking through the mix, terrorizing dancefloors in a truly unique way. As an album concept, ‘Seeing Sounds’ is DLR’s exploration into sound design and how the manipulation of organic elements and subtle soundscapes can create imagery within the music; to set the scene and immerse the listener up to a cinematic level.

    1. ROMARE - Projections (2 x LP incl. Download Code)

      Great dance music albums – albums that sound as good on headphones and home speakers as they do on club soundsystems – aren’t easily made. In a form whose primary aims have been to move dancefloors and to move on, full lengths that thrill the head, heart and the feet with equal power are few and far between. We believe Romare has made one. Learn More
    2. BAMBOUNOU - Centrum (2 x LP)

      A fine vocal Rocksteady, 'All Night' is also known as a killer dubplate owned by Duke Vin, who is regarded as a pioneer of the sound system culture in UK. On the flip ''The Tickler' was more popular than the A-side, and in UK, allegedly no one else besides Duke Vin owned the vinyl until the 90's. This song was surely a very special one in his Dub Plate box! Learn More
