Love Our Records party @ Blue Lamp
After three years of releasing free downloads every week on Love Our Records, we think it’s about time to party! We are hosting a night to remember, to celebrate everything we’ve achieved together with the label’s very own djs; Endoflevelbaddie, Kev La Kat, Drartz, Fast-t, MC Player One and most importantly; you!
In three years, Love Our Records have gained over 125.000 plays online, as well as love and respect across the musical field. From Zane Lowe hosting Endoflevelbaddie and Player One’s live set on BBC Radio 1, to Huw Stephens choosing Love Our Records as his ‘Label of love’, interviewing Kev La Kat live on air. On top of that we are lucky enough to have received regular loving support from some of the best blogs in the world, like Drowned in Sound, SB.Tv, Metal Magazine, The Music Ninja and Grammy blogger; Kick Kick Snare.
On a local level, the boys have been hosting Room 2 at The Welly Club’s drum and bass night; ‘Shinobi’ for over a year now. Playing a vibrant mix of anything goes, (so long as it’s got that BASS!) they spin new, old and never-before-heard edits. Clubbers have whole heatedly joined the party and danced themselves into a beautiful sweaty mess with us all night. All of these Love Our Records’ DJs can also be found testing their skills against one another at The Residents Association, an eclectic night of the city’s best DJs all playing twenty minute sets, competing to get that dance floor bouncing at The Adelphi Club, once a month.
Love Our Records is now the proud musical home to artists all over the world, in major cities like NYC, Madrid, Austin, London and most exotically, Honolulu. But they do say ‘Home is where the heart is’, so with that in mind , we would like to have a proper party at our very own home from home, Hull’s ‘The Blue Lamp’ and invite you , to invite your friends and make this party a little bit special!

New Release - Black Dots
Love Our Records presents the new single from Black Dots - This Stinking World (Stuck On You).
Invisible black dots in the night sky mark out the area between here and there. Have a look now, you might be able to see them… They have no mass or function or meaning, but as you search, time will pass and you will find yourself in the future. In the future it will look and feel and smell almost as it does now. Only more so, and with lasers. This Stinking World is the brand new single from Black Dots. It’s a song about gravity, inevitability, loss and love. It has no mass or function, only lasers.
Remixes from Kev La Kat with Notes Floats, Mr Equilibrium and Steve Cobby (Fila Brazilia) ♥
New Release : Lonely Road
Love Our Records presents Tom Skelly’s Lonely Road with a remix from Human Machine. Tom is a new signing to Lor and we are very happy to have him onboard. He is keen to get collabrating too , so its all a bit exciting.
We first heard Lonely Road live on Local BBC Radio and we thought it was spine chillingly good. His music clearly surpasses his young age and we can expect great things from Tom.
Please share this to be in with a chance of winning 1 of 5 handmade CD copies of Lonely Road and some bonus goodies from Love Our Records for one lucky winner!
Check out the official music video here <3
