KEVIN GRIFFITHS (UK/TSUBA)
Kevin’s label Tsuba is regarded as one of the world’s key players in underground house music releasing deep & soulful house and techno. This is not simply PR spin, but a fact backed up by RA's all-time top 100 most charted labels, where Tsuba sits behind Crosstown Rebels as the second UK label in the list.
As a producer, in addition to several high profile Tsuba releases (second single ‘Cantona Kung Fu’ was no 2 in Deep House on Beatport for one month) in 2011 Kevin has released EPs on 8 Bit & Fear Of Flying with good friend and ex-Peace Division man, Justin Drake. Kevin is a regular at Fabric in London & Watergate in Berlin and in 2011 has racked up the air miles with gigs in Japan, Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Paris, Vienna, Zurich, Turin, Genova, Valencia and the Canary Islands.
Musically you can expect a set filled with deep & hypnotic house, classics and many vinyl only releases, all geared towards the dance floor and creating a killer underground party. A podcast for the highly respected Ibiza Voice series aired in August 2011.
TSUBA RECORDS 2012
Launched in January 2006 by Kevin Griffiths, Tsuba is regarded as one of the world’s key players in underground house music. Tsuba is about forward thinking underground club music with depth and longevity, and has an artist roster made up of some of the world’s most desirable producers. The Tsuba philosophy is to focus on quality in all aspects of the label, first and foremost the music, closely followed by artwork, packaging and label events. There are two offshoots, Tsuba Colours for limited edition coloured vinyl & digital releases and Tsuba Limited for purely vinyl only releases.
After Crosstown Rebels, Tsuba is the second most charted UK label in RA's influential all-time 100 list. Following regular parties at Fabric in London and Watergate in Berlin, 2012 sees Tsuba launch a series of Warehouse parties in London.
