Helmed by Stanza (core crew of True Tiger), Stripes has proved itself a strong force in London's underground circuit for the last three years. There's a lot he has to thank the cast of artists he's pulled in from around the UK for this, in producing such a compelling sound for the imprint. The formative releases came from Stanza's inner circle calling on the likes of Chimpo, Mystry, Sukh Knight, True Tiger and Kinzy to contribute the label's formative releases before widening his scope of talent and reaching out to Bristol based duo Monkey Wrench. The pair hooked up while studying in Bristol and have been growing a healthy rep of their own in recent years for tactfully blending elements from the spheres of bass, garage and house.
With their Farringdon debut slated for our joint venture with Red Bull Studios London next Friday (July 1st) the duo also got together to put together a promo mix to properly demonstrate their sound and features tracks from themselves Near, Caski, Sly-One, Hypho, Dread MC and many more. We should also add their date with us also neatly ties in with their next EP release No Signals which drops on the same day. We totally recommend you take some time out to check, right after you've got through this mix.
