    Default What are your favourites labels

    I was reviewing my music collection, both on vinyls and digital, wondering what were the labels I bought from the most releases over the years. I was actually asking myself what were my 3 favourites labels and if what I had in mind were exactly the reality of my actual picks.


    So I started djing: around 15 years ago (I won't take into account the period before that were I was already buying vinyls)

    Most picked releases from labels:
    - Systematic (Marc Romboy's label)
    - International Deejay Gigolos (Dj Hell's label)
    - Defected : surprisingly enough as I never thought I had some many tunes from them

    runner ups: Primate (which doesn't exist any more)/ Get Physical/ Cocoon/ Ovum/ Planet E communications/ F com

    So what about you? Any surprise?

    There’s also an almost hermetic community that exists in many areas of dance music, where serious hobbyists feed off each other’s expertise but barely connect to the industry – despite many of those involved actually working in it.

    My absolutely, favorite label top 3:

    1. CLR Chris Liebing, godfather of Techno's label. Do I need to say more? Almost every release is bangin'!
    2. Stroboscopic Artefacts Lucy's label, with a different approach of techno. Lots of dub techno and great, great songs (check Xhin's new album, Sword).
    3. Electric Deluxe The label of another greater that great techno artist, Speedy J (his roots lays in hardcore!). Also label of my track of 2010 and 2011 (still), Speedy J - Armstrong!


    Another great labels are: R&S Records, Perc Trax, Bek Audio, Ostgut Ton, Sandwell District and Wolfskuil Records.

    Damn, there are a lot more that I didn't mention...

    I seem to pick up Critical Sound of Drum & Bass alot. I buy Hospital compilations frequently as they come out, seems like Deeper Kuts is in the line up. I've been buying more neurofunk and the labels are to scattered to see a trend, many are artist ran, and outside of Shogun and Touched I'm not seeing a trend. I've been more following artists.
    Old school it was Good Looking every new release. Even when I just had one panasonic tt to play it.

    Yep, that was the point of the thread because I wouldn't have said it was one of my favourites, and actually it isn't, but then, that's a fact I have more picks from it than some others.

    The few that come spontaneous to my mind are:

    - Snatch!
    - Southern Fried
    - Moonbootique
    - Turbo (and Twin Turbo)
