Culprit represents the Los Angeles based label founded by Droog (Andrei Osyka, Justin Sloe, Brett Griffin) and run by Andrei Osyka. Nestled at the foot of the Hollywood Hills, where grime and glitz collide, Culprit delivers a new context for dance music, one born from the dream-chasing guilt-ridden landscape of the City of Angels.
Releasing a string of admirable deep house gems from the likes of supergroup (Soul Clap and Mothership crew) SECT, Matt Tolfrey & Inxec is Droog's award-winning label Culprit from LA. The trio Andrei Osyka, Brett Griffin and Justin Sloe behind the label's own productions play with elements of deep house to techno, having made mixes for the likes of French superblog Get The Curse and being featured on RA's Mix of the Day.
The first label to release Hot Natured and SECT, their new release comes from UK-based dub techno/electronic producer Subb-an ‘What I Do’, before seeing EPs from Lee Curtiss and one half of Hot Natured, Lee Foss.
In the last years, Culprit Records has developed an amazing back catalogue containing releases from acts like: Hot Natured, Gavin Herlihy, Jozif, Ahmet Sisman, Special Case, Lee Fose, Kenneth James Gibson, Adultnapper, Subb-an, Lee Curtis, Ahmet Sisman, Climbers, Shall Ocin, Adriatique, Lula Circus, Edu Imbernon, amongst many others.
