The label will be launched with a solo two-track EP that Edwards himself produced. LACR001 is a 12” due to be released on October 1. Edwards will follow this up with an EP by DJ Harlow with three variations of “Waxwork”.
According to Resident Advisor, possible future work for the label could come from the likes of Parisian producer Low Jacks and Gene Hunt of Chicago house music fame.
The DJ burned up the airwaves last year on the L.I.E.S. imprint of Ron Morelli after the two worked together at A-1 Records in New York City.
Edwards, who bears the name of a Jamaican drug dealer who was murdered in Brooklyn in 1985, has been making waves in Europe and toured with Morelli and Steve Summers on L.I.E.S’ Non-Stop Tour earlier this year.
He is among a group of producers who has gained notoriety for a sound that is more “nebulous and incongruous” than other dance music sounds around.
Among his other tracks are ‘Heart & Soul‘ and ‘4 Club Use Only‘.
