Rinse / Columbia



Rinse Recordings is an off-shoot of former pirate radio station Rinse in London, which now operates legitimately. Rinse FM is a London-based community radio station, licensed for "young people living and/or working within the central, east and south London areas.". The station plays grime, dubstep, house, jungle and funky and other uk-centric dance music.

Rinse FM operated as a pirate radio station but in June 2010 it was granted a community FM Broadcast licence.

The station first released music under the Rinse Recordings imprint in 2003. Currently the label releases albums and singles from a roster of signed artists as well as mix CDs from DJs associated with the station, the label first saw chart success when Katy B released Katy on a Mission with the label in 2010.

Currently signed acts include P Money, Katy B, Trim, Roska and Royal T. DJs who have released mix albums for Rinse Recordings include Skream, Skepta, Kode9 and Elijah and Skilliam. With the release of the 23rd mix CD (mixed by Richy Ahmed), Rinse has stated that it broadens the concept to include non-residents of the station.
