Born To Be Diffrent: 5 Years Of Diffrent Music
Posted by Adam on 2nd March 2015
This month Diffrent Music, a label that I have a lot of love for, is turning 5 years old so I thought I would combine my love of lists with my love of the label to bring you the best of Diffrent Music, so far.
So, let’s start at the beginning: Genesis.
Tightrope – Peace / Chills – Everyones Mad
A style that, now, seems familiar but when it was released 5 years ago Diffrent was really pushing boundaries and starting their journey to champion music that was….Diffrent.
Joe Syntax – White Light / Libra
Moving on to their 3rd release and we have a name that at the time wouldn’t have been as familiar as it is now. Big release from Joe Syntax now of Med School fame.
Dan Marshall – Eden / Marshan & Jamo – Eraser
A personal favourite from the Diffrent back catalogue. I wont say anything about this one, I’ll just give you an excerpt from the press release…
“One day, Daniel the eager Martian decided to visit planet earth.
He jumped into his pink, giraffe shaped moon-lander, when suddenly the ships “perpetual motion powered ghetto blaster” tuned into the giraffe cast.”
Arkaik – Cutting Edge EP
Label regular Arkaik was on the buttons for Diffrent’s 15th release with his brilliant Cutting Edge EP which featured some more “conventional” beats along with the textbook Diffrent vibe.
Kije – Coming For You / You Know Me
The first release on Diffrent’s giraffe step series which paved the way for even more wonky bass heavy goodness.
Fixate – Pum Pum / System Malfunction
LOL this one’s nuts. Enough said.
Conduct – Vanguard / Confrontation / Residuum
And we conclude with their latest release from Conduct which sounds glorious and is the perfect way to round of 5 years of the giraffe. Here’s to 5 more!
