Feature Highlights

Andy Blake is the man behind Dissident Records, one of London's most prolific (the imprint has had 30 odd releases and a CD compilation in its short lifespan) and respected Underground labels. They release in limited runs of 200 vinyl pressings and have come to the attention of Optimo, Prins Thomas, Erol Alkan, Weatherall, Francios K, Derrick May & The DFA, no mean feat as Dissident release no promos or MP3 links, the records have to be bought in ...well record shops!

Andy plays vinyl only " when it comes to me djing its records all the way. If I'm doing a gig and my names on the flyer, I'm represent myself and Dissident its vinyl or nothing. I know people like the idea of carrying thousands of tunes with them on CD or laptops, but how often does that mean they pull out some wild choice? I think it's often the case that they play safe and go with what will definitely work rather than take a chance or two. There's something really good about making a commitment to a Hundred or so tunes that you want to play and have hunch will work while you are packing your records."
