Not at present.
Why did you decide to start a record label and do you think there are too many labels out there at the moment with the whole online mp3 sales?
I decided to start a record label as I were receiving hi volumes of quality music and thought it would be a great idea to get up & coming artists out there for the dj's to play also giving strength to the jungle scene as a whole.
I feel there is many labels out there at the moment, But not many pushing J-Tek, Oldskool or Future Jungle styles.. We feel more than happy to start releasing material in this ever growing market place.
What are your thoughts on the J-Tek movement and where do you think it can go in the future?
I feel the J-Tek scene is building and getting a great rep for itself. I love the stuff that has been released so far & feel the future is developing & focusing even more on cross over genres with J-Tek like Broken Beat, Industrial, Reggae & Ragga, Dubstep & Breaks to make it even more interesting & vibrant.
