"I'm very happy to announce the launch of my label Declassified Records - a home for SP:MC productions moving forward. Starting my own imprint has been something I've been toying with for a while now, yet never given my full focus. As events began to unfold back in spring 2020, I realised there was a great opportunity for me to turn a bad situation into something positive. My busy schedule as a touring artist disappeared overnight, giving me a chance to focus my full attention on my music production.
Other than a couple of remixes, the last proper record I put out was a 12" on Youngsta's label Sentry Records. The tracks 'Vintage' & 'Slugfest' were my first experimentations with garage / 2-step. The release was well received & sold out, but more importantly I had really enjoyed the process of writing the music. Feeling encouraged to continue exploring this new direction, I set about writing a batch of tracks around the garage / 2-step framework, attempting to infuse them with my influences from Drum & Bass and Dubstep.
These tracks are now ready to be released on Declassified as a series of 12" singles, kicking off with DCLSFD001, 'Drawing Sound' with 'Cargo Dub' on the flip."

"The second release on Declassified carries on from where I left off with DCLSFD001, once again setting out to merge the UKG / 2-step framework with my influences from Drum & Bass and Dubstep. I originally wrote these four tracks with a view to releasing them as a double pack, but after some thought split the EP into 2 singles. Test presses for DCLSFD003 have just been approved, and I’m currently working on the fourth release for the label. I’d like to thank everyone for their continued support - obviously this wouldn’t be possible without you!”
