Label Focus is a new series hosted by the extended Melodic Distraction family that deep dives into the life and times of the labels that have defined the sound of modern music.
From the creation of the label to the development of their sound to the present day, our community look back at the record labels that have had a notable impact on their life.
In this edition, Alien Izz curates a label focus on Nuusic. Growing from a series of sound system parties in Manchester basements, Joe Mac and Rafiki Dubs established Nuusic as a label in 2017 and have since been consistently churning out singles and compilations showcasing the best in Drum & Bass and Jungle, whilst scouring the web to find and promote new, emerging talent.
This summer, they’ve been touring the UK, bringing the sound of Nuusic to Audio Farm Festival in Wales, Hit & Run in Manchester and Euphonique’s birthday bash in Bristol. Their latest release, ‘Warlord‘ by Agro ft. Riko Dan, is out now on Juno Downloads and Bandcamp.
Alien Izz is joined by label co-founder Joe Mac for a chat, discussing the origins of the label, the development of Nuusic’s sound, how new talent is found, and where’s next for the label.
