Metalheadz


#1

I just started listening through their catalogue.

What’s your favourite tune?


#2

Where to fuckin begin lol

maybe?

or Photek - Consciousness


#3

Man, what a label. Just throwing good shit about, couldn’t name a single favourite one…


#4

Special mention Dillinja’s “The Angels Fell” since it laid the foundations for techstep.

This is my Metalheadz personal

  • this mix is a good intro to early Headz
  • this is good for a bit of a later vibe

Edit: That Grooverider one is worth it just for the reaction to Dillinja - Violent Killa

Currently we have Dom and Roland’s album in the workings, AI’s album is complete and is phenomenal, Mikal is complete also.

p sure i’ve read/heard something about a blocks & escher album too

classic label but they did put out a lot of shit. peshay’s predator is the last good “classic” metalheadz record. really went down after that. i think i have like 3 records from 1996 til 2004 lol. (or 6 if you count their razors imprint too)
the label revived itself in the mid 2000s via bringing in new people like commix, kryptic minds, amit, noisia, alix perez etc. but what really put metalheadz back on track was the commix remix album imo. but still not really as essential; they’ll put like one good record and a few meh ones imo.

#19

lol why would you pay more money for that tune? it’s a standard by the numbers post-marka halfstep banger w/ an mc. not really worth shelling out for the vinyl imo


#20

I think they do it like this:

“Oh no one is selling it atm, might as well try to sell it for A SHIT LOAD OF MONEY.”
