Winding on some time, in 2015 tired of the major record label bubble they decided to go back to their roots and embark on a new label project and the label Connected was born. At first as a vehicle for themselves to release music also to release other artists music, encompassing Afro House ,Deep House and Techno and all variations of those genres. With distribution through Kompakt records in Cologne the label has grown extensively in the last few years and is now on its 40th release.
Friday headliners are dance music legends Stereo MC’s. Formed in mid 80’s, inspired by electronic music and early Hip Hop, they pressed up their first 12” vinyl and started an independent record label called G Street Records. The label released many UK Hip Hop artists and signed US acts such as Jungle Brothers .
Shortly after they signed to Island/4th and Broadway records and released their first LP and and toured extensively as a live act , garnering a reputation on multi tours and festivals . Their 3rd LP Connected, released in 1992, became a worldwide hit and the song Connected became a classic tune.
Recent years have seen a resurgence in their touring and their live performances are honed to perfection making them a hugely sought after act for festivals and stages everywhere.
