Petit Records: Top 5
Boutique East-London label Petit Records are in their own words “small but perfectly formed.” To everyone else, they’re a humble troupe making a damn fine big noise. Their first release from Rob Shields was picked up by Maya Jane Coles for her RA podcast and Jozif, while the rest of their roster is an Aladdin’s cave of shit hot new talent released on limited edition vinyl. Ahead of their appearance at Land of Kings, we asked them for their top 5 vinyl-only releases, et voila. They don’t disappoint.
1. Chicago – O F F M S G Revision (Millionhands)
Millionhands have not only cemented themselves as dance music’s go to sartorialists, but their releases are shaping up to be just as essential as their tees. This stripped back, stretched out rework of Roy Ayres’ funktastic Chicago is a future classic.
2. Fenbred – Pyramids (Petit)
This is our next release due out in May. Fenbred aka Benjamin Gardner is a young producer/designer from Brooklyn NYC who is undoubtedly destined for great things. This balmy gem with its r’n’b stylings and nu-wave synths is our summer anthem.
3. BLANC 1 - It’s All Over (Hivern Discs)
Hivern is an enviously cool label who have a great attitude towards releasing music. Quality over quantity. This release is no exception, limited to just 100 copies it sold out instantly. Stripped back unfussy beats and bass with a beautiful mournful vocal, sublime.
4. Igor Jadranin – Blue Phase (Bokhari Recs)
Our favourite record from fellow Hackney-based label Bokhari. Almost proggy but with an amazing breakdown. A great label who are definitely on the rise.
5. Rob Shields – Slum Room (Petit)
We’re very proud of our debut 12″ from Rob Shields. Maya Jane Coles and jozif were all over this this timeless track from the start and it launched the label. It epitomises our ethos with tactile, hand painted sleeves and numbered labels. Labour of love.
