is a brand new label, apparently fucked-up-tronics orientated but not limited:
Reduced Phat casts aside the conventions and limitations of Breakcore-Breakbeat-Drum+ Bass/Noise-Experimental Electronic and the narrow confines of each. It is time to break the boundaries that define the medium, to create new ones, that keep out the mundane, the piss-weak and mere imitators.
That time is now.
Its first product is a sample entitled 2%
, which is good to the excess! Trust Mr. Matthew Jeans of Larvae
who definitely has a good taste in such matter and reviewed it on the label's website:
Clocking in at just over an hour for 12 tracks, 2% provides all the essential breaks and bass without cluttering the mix with disposable or throw-away tracks. Edgey brings the weirdness, Enduser fractures the beats, and Subsektor provides the hooks and it all works without ever sounding like too much. (...) Whenever a new label jumps into the game of releasing records into a market that is increasingly unfriendly to physical CDs and untested products and brands, I get a little nervous. When the releases are as good as this one though, I can only hope enough people take notice to make the enterprise the success it deserves to be.
I say, go for it with eyes wide shut!
