Founded by Mike and David Laven, SLANTED BLACK is the new sub-label of one of the most forward thinking labels in dance music, SLANTED HOUSE RECORDS. Headed by Craig Mitchell aka. Oliver Twisted, SLANTED BLACK’s talented artist roster is due to the hard work of both Craig and Josh Parra aka. Etiquette, who heads the A&R department of the label.
With their main focus being the darker side of tribal house, the SLANTED BLACK family is driven to move crowds all over the world with their dark and dirty sounds. With a combination of up and coming talent as well some very well respected DJ’s and Producers of the dance music community, SLANTED BLACK is surely building up a reputation as a force to be wreckoned with.
After celebrating their second release on BEATPORT by hosting a release party at CROBAR NYC, SLANTED BLACK hosted their first label party at home in Boston at 360 UltraLounge. Both parties were a great success and the SLANTED BLACK family is working harder than ever to organize more events like this as well as booking their artists for performances representing the label all over the U.S.
