Fans of deep Drum & Bass are likely to be familiar with Warm Communications, one of the most interesting D&B labels of the 2000s and certainly one of the best American ones, along with say, Offshore and Violence. I got to meet label owner Heath EHL in Sept 2003 when we booked him at a Faultline party at The Tenderloft, and although the cops broke it up and he never got to play, I really liked the dude and have remained interested in the music he plays and releases. So naturally I was jazzed when I found out he’s launching a new imprint called Pushing Red, “Here to further expand the possibilities of dubstep / techno.” The icing on the cake is that he’s got four excellent tunes from my SF friends Jus Wan and DJG to kick things off.
Here’s the announced release list:
RED001 – JUS WAN
RED002 – DJG
A. AVOID THE NOID
RED003 – REMIXES
A. JUS WAN – AZURE [ F REMIX ]
AA. DJG – AVOID THE NOID [ HEADHUNTER REMIX ]
I’m also a big fan of Headhunter and really like the couple releases on 7even I have by F, so I can’t wait to hear the remixes. All in all this looks like a solid start to a new techno-y dubstep / dubsteppy techno label. Be on the lookout for 001, out soon on full art promo (a respectable decision.. fuck white labels.. haha).
