TEKLIFE to launch its own label, announce compilation

It was only a matter of time until the proud members of footwork/juke/dance crew TEKLIFE had to scratch the itch that told them to take things to the next independent level. Following a slew of recent individual releases on Hyperdub from DJ Taye, DJ Spinn, DJ Rashad, and many others, as well as a well-publicized and well-received TEKLIFE compilation from 2014, the global clique has announced plans to launch its own label, TEKLIFE Recordings, at some point in 2016. It’s almost surprising that it’s taken this long.

Of course, it’s easy to say that you’re starting a label, but without an inaugural release in the works, it’s just a cool phrase to say among friends whom you’re trying to impress. But TEKLIFE isn’t about facades, so in conjunction with their new label announcement, a 15-track digital compilation featuring “pretty much everybody from the crew” has also been alluded to in a press release. Look all the way to November 2016 for that, and those of you who breathe wax can express your interest in a limited-edition vinyl version right here. Air’s much better for you, though.
