Black Vinyl Records
Related: UK music - house music
Black Vinyl Records was established in 1996 as the "trax" imprint of Hott Records. Hott was one of the first U.K labels to produce and release authentic Garage music in Europe, releasing material by the likes of Urban Blues Project, Alexander Hope, Marshall Jefferson and many more. While Hott specialised in soulful vocal releases, Black Vinyl focused on disco influenced house and dubby track style cuts. Hott Records ceased trading in 1997, so the label founder, Alan Russell, took 100% ownership of Black Vinyl and promptly set about re-building the label from the roots.
Early releases from artists such as Scottie Deep, 95 North, Splice Of Life and Braxton Holmes helped Black Vinyl establish a firm base of support amongst serious DJs and house music lovers everywhere, while our consistent commitment to quality and originality won the respect of the dance media world-wide.
