    Didn't know Nico was involved in darkestral. Makes sense I guess. I just remember this label being really massive... surprised I haven't seen anything recently released as a 'No U turn record'.

    Edtrafienical is coming out on a joint release with No U Turn & Sublogic. NUT035 i think. Only 150 pressed though and that was a one off. So no more releases I guess.

    No U Turn were quite a dark label back in the day!

    Nico, Trace and Ed Rush, ah the good ol days!

    The Torque LP was proper dark! As far as I know the label ceased business years ago!

    yeh i know nico is still about. The flipside 'empire' is killer. just wondered why they ceased business, when they had releases from serious producers, who still put out tunes.

    I think you are getting mixed up. Rico runs Darkestral, not Nico.
    I spoke to fierce ages ago, I'm sure he said it might be making a come back(?) and Nico Sykes does seem to be popping up on a few releases, so watch this space.
