LIMITED EDITION OF 200, WHITE HAND STAMPED 12"
With three labels covering all musical sounds SMG are focusing on releasing, what was missing was an imprint exclusively for new talent.
Shiro is Japanese for 'white' and the label will release artists on vinyl for the first time in limited runs of 200 white labels.
Our first release comes from Polish artist Erkiu who has already released music on Cylon and CX (alongside Maurs).
The 'YRA' EP marks his first full solo release and of course, first ever vinyl release. 4 tracks of techno informed progressive drum and bass, the YRA EP firmly establishes Erkiu as a name to watch.
DJ support from Doc Scott, Loxy, Clarity, Presha, Gremlinz, Ruffhouse, Overlook and more.

Shiro is the Samurai Music offshoot created specifically for emerging artists first solo release on vinyl.
Torn is a new face to the Samurai camp and our first signing from Russia. A St Petersburg native, Torn has been developing over recent years into one of the most interesting producers in the half step community with his tracks featuring heavily in the sets of many of the scenes most prominent DJ’s including Homemade Weapons, Loxy, Clarity & Presha.
The Grethen EP is a gateway to the Torn sound. ‘Stagnation’ is the most traditional Drum and Bass of the EP with it’s bouncing, grunting lurch. ’Grethen’ goes down low and deep, while ‘Self Reflection’ is the tune bound to populate many DJ sets with it’s tribal percussion. ‘Insomnia’ ups the intensity with frantic, restless energy to close the EP. More Torn music to come on Samurai later in 2017..
