    Anyone hoping to catch us at Renegade Hardware 17th Birthday in Vauxhall this month will be disappointed. We have still not been paid for last years Easter weekend gigs and were not consulted about this gig at all. In fact we found out about it when the flyers were posted on the internet. RH that will be all from us

    I'm pretty amazed that a big label such as Hardware would be run in such an unprofessional manner. That's if it's true of course but I have no reason to believe that VC would make something like this up

    To be fair VC should have sorted this out behind the scenes, looks very unprofessional.

    I doubt they wouldn't have tried to sort it. I'm sure the Facebook post is the result of plenty of negotiation/argument that didn't come with any resolution. They're just letting their fans know which I think is fair.

    knew about the Messiah thing before...think it was some sort of bust up with the Konflict boys

    obviously a long standing issue here hence why they haven't been paid before. Maybe should have kept it to themselves rather than broadcast it through the interwebs...not only to people ask questions of VC now, but also RH as a label.

    simple, keep the drama behind the scenes.

    VC have a right to share their feelings, just as any of us would if we worked for a company and didnt get paid for it. No harm in what they did here, if RH dont pay their artists then they have deal with the reprocussions such as this. They are prob only trying to make the other Djs and artists aware.
    More unprofessional on RH's side of the story I reckon

    Glad someone knows. Clayton is same geezer who runs Breakin Science and has had problems with not paying artists in the past, and fucked skibba about some point last year remember skibba going sick on Facebook about it.

    so he basically went round to their houses and beat them with a baseball bat until they agreed to have it released on RH?
