Cr2 Records is an Electronic Music Company located in London, United Kingdom.
Cr2 was established in July 2004 by Mark Brown (MYNC). MYNC (formerly known as M.Y.N.C Project) has been DJ'ing at some of the world's greatest nightclubs and festivals for over 15 years, as well as producing hit club records and, more recently, hosting the Cr2 Live & Direct Radio Show which broadcasts weekly to over 12 million listeners in over 34 countries worldwide.
In its first year Cr2 managed to muscle its way to the top of the hugely competitive house music market by releasing consistently high quality house music. With releases from the likes of Eric Prydz & Steve Angello, 100% & Danny Howells all going into the UK top 40 singles chart, its easy to see why Cr2 has forged a reputation as being one of the best independent house labels in the world, and one of the only labels with the ability to challenge the majors!
2006 proved to be an amazingly successful time for Cr2. In January Cr2 launched sub label Cr2 Trax to cater for the more underground electronic sound that was blossoming within the scene. Cr2 also released The Egg Walking Away in January and that proved to be one of the biggest tracks of 2006, fusing electronic hooks with indie guitars! Further awesome releases came from Superbass, Ran Shani, ATFC, & Danny Freakazoid whose debut album we released to a great response in October '06.
In January 2007 Cr2 launched sub label Cr2 Digital to cater for the more underground electronic sound that was blossoming within the scene. The string of big tune releases did not stop either, with big hits coming from Hook N Sling 'The Bump', and no less than 3 records in Pete Tong's Essential Selection Show including Kurd Maverick 'Let's Work' and The Essential New Tune for Arno Cost & Arias 'Magenta'.
2013 saw the label proudly reach its 100th Live & Direct Radio show and landmark 500th release, which was a collaboration between label boss MYNC, R3hab and Nari & Milani. #MIAMIBACKAGAIN was released off the back of our Live & Direct Miami 2013 compilation which went Top 10 in the UK, USA, Canada, Brazil and numerous other territories.
Many of dance music's biggest names have featured on Cr2 over the last 8 years, including artists such as David Guetta, Eric Prydz, Chuckie, Fedde Le Grand, Steve Angello, Nic Fanciulli, Avicii, Thomas Gold, Deadmau5, Carl Cox, John Dahlback, Hardwell, Nicky Romero and many many more!
Cr2 Live & Direct compilations are recognised worldwide as one of the best-selling house music brands, most notably Cr2 Live & Direct - Miami, and Cr2 Live & Direct - Ibiza.
Keep an eye out for more exciting releases as Cr2 goes from strength to strength this coming year!
