    big fat sloppy soft spot for Metalheadz, due to their variety and influence over the years. and they have a cool logo :teeth:

    I don't really have one anymore. I used to buy every single L-Plate untill they started releasing crap. This was after the Amit record. Reinforced used to be decent till 2003 and I didn't buy everything they put out. Renegade Hardware was good 2000 till the Earth EP which was crap... Not sure why I bought it and that was my last Hardware purchase. I was also very loyal to Cylon and Advance//d till 2003.

    I'm not so much loyal to labels anymore but rather artists. Unfortunatly much of the techno artists I like won't even sell on Juno anymore like Oscar Mulero and Reeko so I can't get those.

    I'll give Metalheadz credit. They still release the odd good record or LP.

    Dunno TBH, I have a lot of Renegade Hardware, Barcode, and Valve records. Hardware definitely used to be my favourite.

    I'm very excited about new label, Lifted Music :slayer:

    It's odd how we tend to go through phases of favouring different labels. About a year ago i was buying loads of stuff on Bingo, but seem to have gone off it a bit now. Curious.....

    DnA Audio or Quarantine are the 2 I've been tracking for a while, but it use to always be about RAM but after the Huggy Bear release & the other really poor tracks which came out around the same time I bypased most of their stuff, but I have picked up the Subfocus track Airplane which I really love it's so hypnotic & uplifting just oozees class I'm hoping they create some of the Molten Beats days now that was an LP.

    other than the seminal Subtitles, i have been feeling the following labels for the smoother sounds:

    Progress
    Horizon
    Bingo (especially lately & the Jenna G stuff is Hawt)
    Creative Source
    Exit & Exit VS
    Fokuz
    Renegade
    Signature
    Soul:R
    Brigand
    Social Studies (gotta love the Mathmatics & Tactile collaboration these tunes are all brilliant)

    And for the harder crunchier stuff:

    Black Sun Empire
    Metalheadz
    Renegade Hardware
    DNAudio
    Commercial Suicide

    Counter Intelligence
    Offshore
    Inperspective
    Breakin'
    Outsider
    Esoteric
    13 Music
    Subvert Central

    I'd like you to check out some audio clips from the first 7 releases on my label, Subtle Audio...

    all audio clips HERE


    I started my label over a year ago now and I'm influenced by oldskool and D&B from the early days mostly... labels like Reinforced, Metalheadz, Certificate 18, Good Looking etc etc.


    Any feedback appreciated !
