Bullet:dodge head honcho Gareth Whitehead has really been pushing his label this year and his work is really starting to pay off. After plenty of tracks charting on beatport he has decided to run a free night to showcase some of the their latest productions, remixes and artists.
Bullet:dodge Records was established to provide a forum for musicians, DJ’s to challenge the limits of contemporary electronic club music. It focuses on delivering consistently innovative house and techno that pushes boundaries and charters new musical territories whilst retaining a DJ friendly ethos that ensures the bullet:dodge label is synonymous with the club culture that inspired its creation.
Based in Wishaw, Scotland, the label was founded in 2007 by Gareth Whitehead, a vastly experienced and highly prolific producer, remixer, DJ and artist that required an outlet for his signature brand of deep, dubby, tech-house and minimal. Tantamount to this, Gareth understood that the new era of digital distribution and expanding online communities was creating a new wave of forward thinking, imaginative and highly skilled producers, and he was determined to provide a stage from upon which the very best new international talent could freely express itself.
With an impressive arsenal of deep, funky grooves and a willingness to explore dark, abstract territories, bullet:dodge records has gone from strength to strength. The exponential growth of the labels reputation since its inception has been down to the staggering quality and consistency of releases that have ensured huge support from Richie Hawtin, Slam, Troy Pierce, John Digweed, Laurent Garnier, Ben Sims, Dubfire, Stephan Bodzin, Toni Rios, Dan Curtin, Tim Xavier, Christian Smith, Dave Tarrida, The Advent, Technasia, Thugfucker, Scratch Massive, Danny Tenaglia, Josh Wink, Steve Bug, Fergie, Timo Maas and Wally Lopez plus many many more.
