V Recordings was started in 1993 by Bryan G and Jumping Jack Frost, and in all this time the team can confidently say that they have always trod their own path, bringing through new artists a nd sounds right from day one and leaving a path of creative innovation in their wake. They had made a name for themselves as successful DJs on Brixton based pirate radio station Passion FM and had a strong following around London. While Frost spent most of his energy DJing on the warehouse and rave circuit Bryan worked at Rhythm King helping to launch the careers of artists like moby and signing a wide selection of underground musicís biggest classics.

V Recordingsí first release was the ĎFatal Doseí EP from two of the Bristol artists, Ryan Williams and Keith Thompson, working under the name The Deceivers. Of course, these producers are now better known to the world as Roni Size and DJ Krust. The importance of these artists to both drum & bass and British electronic music as a whole cannot be underestimated, and itís thanks to V Recordings that they got their first all important break in the industry.

Riding high on the success of the Bristol connection, V Recordings had also begun to work with local London producers like Dillinja, Lemon D and Ray Keith who fit the V Recordings mould perfectly. As the media and record buying public started to pick up more and more on the underground sounds coming from these young talentsí studios so the popularity of the label burgeoned to the point of bursting with fans from around the globe flocking to buy their releases. The natural evolution of both V Recordings and the drum & bass scene in general began to move from releasing single after single into full album projects. This progression was an easy transition for V as the label had built a massive collection of anthems in their catalogue and an impressive pool of production talent to draw from.

With an eye on the future, V will continue to bring through some of the most versatile producers the underground scene has to offer. Picking up on the regeneration of the original rave mentality Ė everyone raving to different styles of music all under the same roof Ė V Recordings intends to branch out with different styles of music, but always following their sound and being true to themselves.

In a scene where too many labels fall by the wayside, itís inspiring to see one with so much history and with so much to offer the future.
