Bad Taste Recordings represents the timeless edge of innovative, energeticDnB. Fuelled by a core set of principles revolving around their adept sense of what’s fresh in combination with their wealth of experience. Their goal is to find new talents from the sonic horizons of the modern world, and propel these unique artists to the forefront of the scene. Their solid foundations start with label boss Vegas being a core member of seminal DnB outfit Bad Company – who rightfully earned their place at the top of the sound.
The roots of the label lie in the Bad Taste concept LP series through BC recordings, which kicked off in 2005. This gave listeners their first tastes of legends such as Noisia, Chase & Status and State of Mind.
Officially forming Bad Taste Recordings in 2007 took the initial objective of searching for new talent to the next logical stage of its evolution – with the Bad Taste imprint becoming a movement of its own. Today it stands with a cult following gained through its groundbreaking series of releases that have garnered widespread respect amongst producers, Djs and ravers.
The 6th instalment of Bad Taste’s compilation series was released in 2014 alongside critically acclaimed EPs from Neurofunk pioneers Billain and the Teddy Killerz – producers at the pinnacle of their art.
2015 so far has provided releases from fresh talent such as Heamy and Cod3x, as well as veteran producer Current Value with his carefully constructed ‘Force Black’ EP.
With a strong array of releases lined up until the year end – Bad Taste is set to further warp boundaries and defy genre expectations, continually evolving its sonic output and playing its well-earned part in identifying and encouraging innovation at the forefront of the DnB scene.
The roster past and present is formed of artists including – Noisia, The Upbeats, State of Mind, Teebee, Mindscape, Blokhe4d, Chris Su, Joe Ford, Receptor, Chase & Status, Billain, Current Value, Audio, Teddy Killerz, Prolix, Gridlok, Spor, Neonlight, Cod3x, Heamy… and the mighty Bad Company UK themselves.
