    Playaz were on Nu Urban though, weren't they? So, that may have made a difference?

    Would be a shame. Vimana / Snubnose got a pressing. Playaz are big enough to shuffle over to another distributor. They should go to whoever presses Grid's records

    Could just do what other labels are kinda doing and do pressings depending on what the people want.

    Anyone still buy anything on playaz?

    Don't mean to be harsh but their output recently was aimed at the younger generation of "noise" lovers who don't legally purchase music.

    Stereotypical behaviour on my behalf but I'm pretty sure I have a valid point

    The tune remixed by Basher on the new Flavours EP is great, but haven't bought a playaz tune in ages, don't think.

    Their output recently hasn't been any different than before..

    If you're looking for a label releasing noise for kids I present RAM

    On Like That EP is one of the best releases of the year so far. Has nothing to do with "noise" lovers whatsoever.

    The recent Need For Mirrors and Gridlok releases and the Prolix and Sub Zero EPs all show Playaz is still on form. Sure they let out some duds from time to time but I definitely wouldn't say they've lost it.

    New Original Sin is shit though.

    If this is one step on the route to abolishing vinyl-only releases then I am all for it.

    Havn't bought any playaz releases in a looong time so wouldn't affect me, all wah wah womph bits of plastic that would see more use as a frisbee imo.
    Am hearing this or at least rumours about this with more and more labels lately, despite people saying vinyl sales are on the up. Might just be some big marketing thing so people think 'shit, last release, must bag!' Or it might be the last thing they press. Who knows.
