New Music Releases

Post by DoctorFoster »

Four boys from in and around Birmingham who live and breathe music. Known as Cigarette Social club, have released their new single Loop 69.

During the pandemic lock down, music has been one of the key things that has helped a lot of us from going completely insane. Having all this time on our hands has allowed us as creatives to write and finish new songs, and as music fans, to rediscover old songs and discover new artists. We want to harness the resistance music has against tragic circumstances to help with the fight against Covid-19.

This compilation album showcases some of the most exciting up and coming electronically influenced artists from Birmingham. It also includes an exclusive release of our new song PSHE, which will not be made available elsewhere. We have put the album up on Bandcamp (link in bio) where you can pay whatever you wish. All money made will be donated to local food banks in Brum run by The Trussell Trust. As a community of music lovers, this is an opportunity for us to come together to support our local music scene and raise as much money as we can to help those in need in our city!

Midland’s most iconic label Network Records has long been hailed as a launchpad for many now legendary songs and artists from both Techno and House scenes. Thankfully for us, label head and knowledge base Neil Rushton continues to forge forward with innovative ideas and keeping Birmingham on the international musical map. And now recently announcing a unique campaign to support the medical industry who are hard at work to maintain our health and restoration of health at present.

Iconic masked dance music stars Altern 8 return to the music industry with a driving aim to raise thousands of crucialfunds for NHS staff who are helping patients nationwide fight Covid-19 through a newly completed charity “Isol-8’ version of their biggest chart busting anthem.

The 1991 hit “Activ-8” – which made number 3 in the charts at the height of the Acid House rise, has been remixed with a timely message urging everyone to stay safe at home to protect against coronavirus.

Spearheading a solid run of releases ahead, here we’ve got a solid mix of Deep Underground numbers, interplayed between a few classic Disco, House and Funk led grooves.

The Exclusive Summer Sampler heralds a welcome return of Birmingham’s Soul Central who are globally recognised act and chart topping artists, alongside Dante Payne who has recently released on the likes of King Street and Kenny Dope’s imprint Dopewax, with Deep City Soul widely revered for delivering cuts that transcend from iconic Garage labels to many notable stalwart House labels.

Each track will be appearing as standalone single releases over the coming months, accompanied by various remixes as we see this fledgling label continue to rise in global stature.
