Each month we’ll be taking you on a tour of our favourite labels, from old school House mainstays to little known vinyl-only imprints and selecting some prime cuts from their catalogues to help you navigate the musical spectrum.
This month we’ve got No Attitude Recordings in the hotseat. In fact, we like the guys over there so much that we’ve even invited them to host a monthly residency at the club.
Launched back in May 2012, No Attitude is a relatively young label contributing to the scene. A collective of heads with one mantra – enjoy the music, jerks need not apply. The roster has been kept tight and consistent and features bits from Marco Colombino, Enzo Tedeschi, Ex Sound System, Bode, Darkart and Franko Lopez.
Their ethos is simple, they’re all about quality underground electronic music (genres spanning the deep house – tech house spectrum) but leave your ‘tude at the door please.
Must Hear: Enzo Tedeschi – ‘What She Wants’
It’s always hard to narrow down just one track for this but for me this is a standout record. A nice slice of melodic deep house from label head Enzo Tedeschi, reminiscent of early OFF Recordings / Hot Creations days.
New Blood: Marco Colombino – ‘My Sexy Sick Voice’
The backbone of this record is a stomping groove! Couple that with a monologue about ‘Sexy sick voices’ and some mind-bending synths to make a real winner here.
No Attitude recordings host a free entry party every first Sunday at Cafe 1001.
