    who are your favourite labels at the moment? (not including metalheadz, ram etc.)


    gotta say I can't fault ingredients at the moment, picked up most releases from theirs and really looking forward to the LP this year !

    also coded music, big fan of payload + cooper's dream

    Signature, Symmetry, Blackout Music, Exit, Dispatch, Neosignal, Mainframe, Spearhead, 31 Recs, Breed12Inches, Citrus, Darkestral, Invisible...there's shit loads of good labels out there, even when you are not considering those biggest names in the game.

    Bad Taste? Symmetry? LIFTED?!

    Not what I would define as a small label...

    Ammunition is by far my favourite smaller label although they are moving quickly and if not already are, but will be one of the biggest proper neuro label...

    Horizons is my favourite label ever, but dunno if anyone would class it as small. Otherwise, Ingredients and Play both put out some really sick music.

    they really do have to step up on the mastering of their vinyl tho, #001 doesnt sound as good tbh.
