OUTRAGE (Backlash, Metalheadz, Inneractive, Intasound, Commercial Suicide, Rufige, Horizons) Bedford, UK

This year Outrage also proudly presents Backlash Records, focusing on bringing forth experimental beats to breathe a newfound life into the electronic music scene. Backlash Records embraces the musical taboo and encourages like-minded artists to free themselves from the constraints the music industry has placed on the producer.

Since day one Outrage has been a purveyor of abstract music, providing a unique perspective upon dancefloor music. Honing his skills on labels such as Metalheadz, Inneractive, Intasound, Commercial Suicide, and L Plates, he now chooses to continue pushing sounds which explore the depths of the human imagination by encouraging other producers to pursue their own artist endeavors.

With a sturdy past and forthcoming catalogue from some of the greatest free-thinkers in electronic music, this label will be one that caters to a panoramic audience, not as customers, but as listeners. Look for the label to cross cultural boundaries as well as the ever-present generation gap by employing the music as art, and not a consumer product. The first release comes from the owner himself, due for release in May 2007, the beats and atmospheres painting a bittersweet scene and showcasing Outrage's continuing emergence as an artist (and now label owner) ahead of the status quo.

To support the launch of Backlash Records, Outrage will be touring the UK and Europe from 23rd February till the end of May and then onto the United States, finishing up the year in Australasia and New Zealand. Also keep an eye out for Backlash merchandise later on this year. www.myspace.com/backlashrecordsuk

Also due to be launched in 2007 will be Whisper Audio. Whisper Audio was founded in 2006 after drum and bass producers Outrage and Aperture were graced with the vocal presence of siren enchantress Kirsty Hawkshaw. The collaboration was the genesis of a unique hybrid of cutting edge beats and bass, developed orchestration, and ethereal vocal arrangement...a new sound was born. Building upon shared knowledge and individual perspective of the music industry, the three decided to join forces. Their sole pursuit is the development and recognition of experimental music with emphasis on vocal integration. Whisper Audio is their medium... www.myspace.com/whisperaudio
