The longest-running breakbeat label, TCR will reach its 100th release in November and have planed a European and UK tour to coincide.
Speaking to RA about the milestone, we asked Pilgrem if 100 releases were on the radar when he started out over a decade ago. "Yes it was part of my masterplan to have 100 12"'s released in 12years to coincide with October 10th which is when the moon saturn uranus".
To coincide with the single and album release, a full UK and European tour has been announced where fans in Italy, Spain, Dubai, Russia, Poland and the UK can expect to here a good blend of classic TCR material and music which will map the future of the label over the coming year; " Yeah, bit of both [Old + New TCR Material] - but there will definitely be a healthy dollop of classics TCR in my sets on the tour.". A few of the dates will also feature Rennie's new live band, Rennie & The TCR Allstars who have played a number of high profile gigs throughout the European summer.
