Very few record labels can claim to have had the same impact on the UK music scene as significantly as Full Cycle Recordings. Often mentioned in the same breath as other iconic labels such as Good Looking Records, Metalheadz, RAM and V Recordings, the label has gone on to shape the current sound of UK dance music from the mid 90’s onwards.
Started through the meeting of Roni Size and Krust, these 2 like-minded and musically gifted individuals went on to form Full Cycle Records.
The four original members made up of Roni, Krust, Die and Suv had a shared vision of how they wanted to sound of Drum and Bass to move forward, evolving the early sound of Jungle, Ragga Jungle and Hardcore to incorporate deeper elements of Jazz and Soul into the quickly evolving sound. Roni Size and Die’s seminal release ‘Music Box’ which was released in 1994 will go down in history as one of that record that changed so much in the scene, whilst being inescapable at the time. Following the success of those early releases, the label continued to expand and delve into an exploration of Jazz-tinged breakbeats contrasted deep rolling sub basslines.
As the label continued to grow and influence the direction of Drum and Bass even further, new projects and members were introduced into the busy release schedule and extended family. Artists such as Photek, Clipz (now Redlight), D Product, Heist, Tali, Surge, Bill Riley and J Raq continued to add to the Full Cycle catalogue throughout the 2000s, whilst carving out their own place in the constantly changing sound of Drum and Bass. Other collaboration projects on the label such as Breakbeat Era (Roni, Die and Leonie Laws) and I Kamanchi (Die and Krust) are still considered to be classics from the era and continue to be held up as a reference point for current producers in Drum and Bass and beyond.
After 15 years of successful releases, the label took a break from releasing new music and the four original members of Full Cycle pursued new musical interests and solo projects. Now the time is right for the label to return with their unrivalled back catalogue of classics, and a run of live showcases with originators Roni, Krust and MC Dynamite.
Age restriction is 18+ and times are 9pm-4am.
