I initially fell in love with the labels more technical sounds - Source Direct and J Majik as well as the militant stompings of Doc Scott & Dillinja, later I came to feel the jazzier funk leanings of Geordie heroes Hidden Agenda and then the more rolling sounds of Optical, Ed Rush & Grooverider. And obviously the label wouldn't be what is is without co-founder Goldie/Rufige Kru, alongside Kemistry (sadly she passed away in an accident in 1999) and Storm.
This one goes out to my old friend Mellow, a lot of these tracks remind me of her and my time in England.

Yeah I know the Kemistry release was on FRRR but it was pretty much a platform for bigger Metalheadz releases as far as I can tell.
Cheers to Tris and the NCLbeats crew.
