With three years of work behind it, the Darkbeat Recordings label has launched. Regarded as one of Melbourne’s leading underground crews, the imprint will see the Darkbeat name go wider. Darkbeat Recordings will kick off with a mix compilation CD, with plans to include unsigned music in the label operations in the near future.

“When we started Darkbeat over nine years ago, we did so because we wanted to share our passion and love of quality underground music with other like minded Melburnians,” says Darkbeat founder Daniel Banko. “We just wanted to stay honest to ourselves and not pander to commercially mainstream audiences. At the heart of this project we will be focussing on delivering the freshest and most cutting edge sounds which we are renowned for, however never straying too far from that old school party vibe that punters can expect at any Darkbeat party. It’s time to remind the world again that Australia still is a major player in the underground scene.” Stay tuned for more details – there’s sure to be plenty to come in the remainder of 2012.
