Deconstruction Records is back. In a joint venture between Sony’s Senior Vice President of A&R Mike Pickering, one of the label’s founder members, and Three Six Zero Group's AnD press, the dance imprint has returned with a series of back catalogue releases before signing new artists later in the year.

The label’s first re-release is Sasha’s ‘Xpander’, digitally re-mastered at Abbey Road and available via Beatport for the first time in original and 7” versions. Following this will be Lionrock’s ‘Packet Of Peace’, complete with the seminal Chemical Brothers’ remix.

A decade on from its original release, ‘Xpander’ is considered one of Sasha’s most enduring ‘classics’. Co-produced with Spooky’s Charlie May, its instantly recognisable synth lines still send dancefloors into raptures, and as a much sought after piece of vinyl on ebay and other collector sites this digital release should appease global demand.

Sasha needs little introduction. Britain’s most iconic DJ and producer remains one of the most enigmatic figures in global dance music. Last year’s Invol2ver album was met with widespread critical acclaim, and on the production front his new label emFire has become a go-to stable for his own music. His recent remix of Doves’ ‘Jetstream’ will soon be joined by re-workings for Pole Folder (‘Hate Myself’) and Damian Lazarus (‘Spinnin’). He will shortly embark on a North American tour followed by Australia (see for details).

Deconstruction Records was founded in 1987 and ran until 2001. It quickly gained a strong reputation for cutting-edge, contemporary dance music. Beyond signing the major crossover dance hits of the time, the label excelled in developing artists such as Black Box, M People, Way Out West, Sasha, Republica, Kylie Minogue, N Joi, and many more, and was at the forefront of the Italo house movement. Deconstruction was also the parent label for Concrete Recordings, responsible for acts such as Lionrock, Death In Vegas, Dub Pistols, and others.

Further Deconstruction releases will be announced in due course.\
