As some people may already know, the legendary Skint Records label in Brighton, which pioneered the Big Beat movement has very recently been bought by BMG Records, marking the end of an era for the label. Skint was home to some amazing artists including Midfield General, Bentley Rhythm Ace, Kidda, Lo-Fidellity Allstars, Cut La Roc, Xpress2, Sonny Wharton and of course Fatboy Slim.
In tribute - here is a 5 minute minimix form Rory Hoy of some of the label's greatest hits!
A decade is a long time in anybodys book. But to release a constant stream of music through a record label really takes some doing these days. I guess as long as there is support and signed talented artists out there producing some great tunes it really is possible.
Launched in 2004 BASSROCK RECORDS pioneered the crossover between Hardcore Breaks & Nuskool Breaks by releasing the anthem SHOULDERROLLER by D'State, Darkus & Tension in all it's 150bpm glory with the almighty AUTOBOTS remixing the flipside for the Breaks crowd, and instant classic with support all across the board.The labels ethos was simple, oldskool /jungle vibed tracks with nuskool thinking. BASSROCK RECORDS now celebrates 10 years !

The man with the incredible bacon plan Marten Hørger has just uploaded his latest mix in his BEATS series. Bass and Breaks are the order of the day here and maybe with a side of bacon. Fresh stuff indeed.
Last year i interviewed Marten and for those that missed it and want to know a bit more about the man check the link below.
Australia's Kenny Beeper and Dastardly Kuts had the last minute call up to play a back to back set in support of Dead Pixel at Byron Bays Beach Hotel and this was the result, clocking in at just over 45 minutes it was a power set that had the packed venue jumping from start to finish.
An extra big shout out to MC Dyzlexic who hyped the crowd like no other but whos stellar work unfortunately did not make it into the recording and also to DJ More Vibes who warmed up the crowd perfectly.
