PI Recordings / Phatcontrollers Update + Competetion


New Member
Ok well it’s been a busy couple of weeks here in the pi recordings camp. Thought I would give you all a little update on all things PI.

PI7 - John Rolodex - Punisher / Amenizm - This is getting mastered any day now and we are looking to have some promos ready hopefully mid / end November. This release has been getting some serious caining by the likes of Bailey and also L-Double on 1xtra. Watch This Space.

PI8 - D'Villianz - Kick in the Door / Halo - This is looking for an early 2005 release with support from Pendulum , John B , Subfocus , Ram Recordings. This tune has been smashing up dance floors every time it’s been dropped. Halo on the flip has a slightly more beat orientated style to keep the beat freaks happy and has been a feature of many people’s recent sets including Chris inperspective.

PI9 - Latent Notion - Blatant Lotion (Vocal Mix) / Unnamed Feat Scope - Taking the pace down a little and going by the label ethos of something for everybody this one is for the drum fans. Blatant lotion is a nice roller that sits nicely in any genre of dj set with its crisp lyrics and tight string arrangement. The flipside which is currently unnamed is a darker haunting track and dark deep rolling bassline.

PI10 - This is still in organizational stage but expect a 2 piece vinyl pack to celebrate our 10th release. Featuring some very interesting remix's of previous pi tunes and 1 or 2 bits of new material.

PI Recordings Launch Night / Technical Freaks Album Launch Tour - 26th November 2004 - The Fez Club - Reading - UK - For the launch of PI 7 and also to celebrate the labels new direction we are bringing the talents of DYLAN (freak), TECH ITCH (Freak), JOHN ROLODEX (Freak , PI, Metalheadz) The Phatcontrollers (SB:Advance / PI) D'Villianz (Pi) & Dj Exxon (SB:Advance). MC Support comes from none other than Manikular & SP. There will be flyers very soon for this one so watch this space


Ok to win a Test Pressing of the next PI release "John Rolodex" we want you to come up with a name for the unnamed latent notion track that’s coming out on PI8.

Post them up here and we will choose the best one.
