The Midnight Social Recordings mothership will hit the big 5-0 this year, too
This year will see deep house label Midnight Social Recordings reaching their 50th release, with MSR050 already in the can. The four-track EP, which will be out digitally and on vinyl, is the work of 3am Recordings boss Al Bradley, who's repaying a favour seeing as MSR owner Carlo Gambino did the 50th release for 3am.
But there's certainly no resting on laurels going on on Gambino's part, because 2017 will also see the launch of a new spin-off label named Amongst Others. He tells us: "Amongst Others will focus on the deeper, minimal, techy side of house, which is the area I'm currently most passionate about in my DJ sets. I've had the idea of the name for ages, and I was actually going to start producing under that name as well - but I decided it sat better for a label."
All this activity comes following Gambino and MSR's recent relocation from Leeds to Sydney, Australia. Look out, too, for forthcoming releases from the now ex-pat DJ/producer on Still Play, Made With Love, IDL Records and Apollo. It seems Carlo really can do this house music malarkey standing on his head!
