Sometimes, when I’ve got too much time on my hands, I sit and I try and work out which label is really my favourite – Get Physical, dirtybird, Wolf + Lamb… Most of the time, I can argue any of them up to the top spot. However, the one that takes the title more often than not is Made To Play; consistently brilliant and an asset to the industry, always delivering the skills of a delicious line-up of DJ talent.
For me, the appeal is based largely on trust. Each release and signing is carefully handpicked by label boss Jesse Rose for its style and quality. If you have built a relationship with Made To Play, you have also created one with Jesse Rose’s impeccable taste in music, and it is as reliable as it is exciting.
I’m sure many of you feel the same way, which is why we should all join in the celebrations next month. Made To Play have announced they will mark their 5th Anniversary this year by releasing a brand new double CD complete with a 48 page colour booklet on 25th October. CD 1 will have fresh material from all of the Made To Play crew and CD 2 will be a mix of the best of Made To Play’s last 5 years.
On top of that they will also be on a European tour throughout October. London is lucky enough to have Jesse Rose, Zombie Disco Squad, Renaissance Man, Idiotproof and Oliver $ in town on Friday 15th October (venue TBC), so save the date, and we will be making every attempt to hitchhike to Panorama Bar for this party: Saturday 9th October, Midnight Saturday – Sunday night. Black Rose – Live / Jesse Rose / Heidi / Riva Starr / Round Table Knights / Zombie Disco Squad / Renaissance Man / Oliver $ / Payme.
