One year and 3 huge events since starting, 1Forty are ready to start releasing music.
Following on from events with the likes of Oneman, Champion, Cause & Affect, Holy Goof and Slimzee, Leeds’ very own 1Forty are now launching a label.
Aiming to capture the same vibe as their massive nights, 1Forty are going to be releasing music across the spectrum of UK Bass music with colour coded artwork, starting with grime (red) and eventually following up with bass (blue), UKG and funky (orange).
The first release from 1Forty is set to be released on June 6th and will be a 3 track, free to download grime EP; Killa P and Badness have hooked 9TRANE up with a previously unreleased vocal for the huge ‘Compute Riddim’, 20-4 and Drax team up on ‘Square Root’ and Hamdi goes in with ‘Criminal’.
“I feel this is something that can progress into a unique platform pushing artists and genres from all areas of underground music. After performing with Killa at Outlook Festival I felt it was vital to use one of his vocals and I feel 1Forty is the perfect label for it”
There’s also a livestream planned on the date of release to celebrate the label launch, and we can expect another 2 free releases from 1Forty this year, as well as more of their heavyweight events.
