36 Hertz
  Newbury, UK

ARTISTS: DJ Vapour  

Launching in 2008 DJ Vapour’s 36 Hertz recordings was set up to showcase forward thinking music from producers new and old. With the music taking the lead rather than chasing already established artists the label strives to put the best forward thinking music into the spotlight. Many artists started with their first release on 36 Hertz recordings and went onto create ongoing legacy’s in the Jungle / DNB scene.

The label quickly gained support from not only the Jungle / DNB scenes leading DJ’s and radio shows but also broke out into other genres with DJ’s such as Skream and B traits championing 36 Hertz dubplates alongside DJ’s such as Andy C, DJ Hype, Grooverider, Shy FX, Chase & Status and many more. 36 Hertz releases have featured strongly on Radio stations such as BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, Kiss FM and Kool FM as well as finding their way onto major label compilation LPs with Warners Music and more.

DJ Vapour is to keen to ensure 36 Hertz does not conform to specific sounds or styles and will release music right across the spectrum of Jungle / DNB and beyond. As well as forward thinking Jungle and DNB release’s the label and its artists have started to experiment with a new sound which they are calling “Flashback”. This sub genre settles at around the 140BPM speed range and draws influence from 1990’s Hardcore, Jungle and Drum n Bass fusing the sounds together into one breakbeat driven melting pot. Along side the Flashback release’s the label still continues to push Jungle and Drum N bass with the continued support of the scenes top DJ’s.

The label not only features release’s from its family of exclusive signings but still continues the search for new and rising stars to develop over the coming years.
