Strut

Strut

Profile:
1999-2003: Strut was one of the UK's leading record labels dedicated to unearthing the lost gems of dance music past, covering music from hard funk, underground disco, original breaks and Nigerian Afrobeat to old skool hip hop and forgotten music library classics.

Set up in 1999 to document important areas of dance music's history, Strut's releases cut no corners, bringing together killer dancefloor tracks as well as giving a full context to the music, telling the story of the characters behind the tunes, the clubs and the scene of the time. The albums are mastered from original tapes wherever possible and feature extensive sleevenotes, researched and written by respected journalists, rare photographs and memorabilia.

Strut was reactivated in January 2008 and was acquired by the !K7 Label Group. Please enter the country as Europe on releases after that date unless there is an exclusive retailer in another territory.

Great label - Quinton Scott must be proud. Wouldn't mind seeing them do more cutting edge compilations, both v/a as per artist (à la Patrice Rushen). For instance a best of Rita Lee filtering out the genuinely funky tracks from her many (often dated sounding) albums.

They produce some fantastic compilations and retrospectives. I just wish they would put the same amount of tracks on the vinyl as the CD. Always a disappointment.
