We have 3 massive tunes from Goli & Ashburner. The ‘a’ side is for the deep heads, warehouse 13, which has been getting a lot of support everywhere. The 2 tunes on the ‘b’ side are more tear out/jump up. One has gone off every time we have played it out, boxed is the vocal version on the vinyl and the vocal version will be available on digital release.

Radio shows
We have a fortnightly show on dub concept radio http://www.dubconceptradio.com (details got to be confirmed soon but should have 1st show on there in early march) It’ll be 7-9pm GMT. On our show on previous stations we showcase mixes from up and coming Dj’s, producers or Dj/Producers. We have had some unbelievable mixes so far. DFRNT kicked us off with the first mix and its set the trend from then onwards. We will continue to do this on dubconcept radio too.

Future releases
We’ve not got anything set in stone yet but we are 90% certain on who and what 002 & 003 will be.

Thanks to Bassweight, everyone knows how Croydon used to be, but what goes on these days in terms of club nights and other music based things such as record shops?

There is a regular night at the Black Sheep bar every Wednesday called Dubkulture. Pistonsbeneath is the guy who runs that night and I have to say a massive thanks to him for getting us down there on a regular occasion. There is a wide range of dubstep represented there so there is something for everyone. Croydub is also at the Black Sheep bar too, the next one is in April. At the last one I was in the queue for hours waiting to get in. It is always a big night there, always! Apart from those two nights there are usually a few nights here and there with big name artists.

Unfortunately there are no more record shops down here! Big Apple was the shop everyone went to, and since that went it was never really the same! Swag records was the other side of Croydon too but that has closed down.

As more and more heads and labels turn digital only, why did you choose vinyl as a viable format for your releases?

We have always been vinyl dj’s. We grew up around vinyl, and we want to keep the vinyl touch to the scene. I know it can be a massive pain in the rear end carrying all those records half way across the country but the scene was built on dub plates and vinyl and we want to keep that going. There is nothing better than getting your dubs cut down the studio and then spinning them that weekend. There is also the sound quality too, nothing can beat a weighty 12″ or 10″. We do understand that there is a digital market out there now, so some of our release will have both vinyl and mp3’s along with a digital only track! (boxed vocal is digital only on 002 release)

What labels do you take inspiration from for LPR output?

Deep Medi & DMZ. Two of the best labels in the scene who will never be beaten, in terms of music released, artwork and everything associated with the names!

Any advice for producers who want to contact you regarding demos/dubs?

You can send anything to loftpartyrecords@gmail.com or if you have any dubplates send us an email and we will give you an address to send them to. This also goes for anyone who wants to feature on the guest mixes on our show! Give us an email and we will send you more details on what to do. Also if we are playing some where local to you and you want to pass on music then feel free to. Its always good to meet the people who send you music or take an interest in possibly releasing something through your label. It gives you a feel of who is behind the buttons .

It also gives us an excuse to chin wag over a few beers!
