We at HQ thought that we should catch everyone up on what we’ve been up to this summer. From our first ever party in the UK to our first ever party in Tel-Aviv!
August, Construct’s 7th month of existence, has been one of our best yet!
The beginning of summer saw Construct Sound host their first ‘Resonance” DnB night in Manchester; at the well known Joshua Brookes venue. The event was an exciting mix of growing talent within the scene, such as the likes of Selector Spinach, DJ Dutta, DJ SPRKY and experienced heavy-weights Phatworld headlining the event.
After Manchester, The Gentleman Squatter played a set on the Green Machine Stage at the Strawberry Fair, Cambridge; accompanied by Construct’s MC Metronoom. The duo then went on to perform on the Reggae2Jungle stage at Beats 4 Love in Ostrava, Czech Republic.
Towards the end of June, we saw the release of a debut EP ‘Different Breed‘, from Fuse NBG, our first MC signed to the Flow sub-label. This was followed swiftly by the release of an excellent music video for the headlining single “Bully Who“, produced by Mistakay, with the visuals coming from Troy Miller, who is an up-and-coming videographer signed to the Construct Sound Agency. Fuse NBG also has a second video dropping from the EP, titled “Rude Mentality” which is due to be released soon.
The end of July was focused around the debut release from Israeli producer Xorcore; “Have Blue EP“. This is a jazzy style of experimental Drum and Bass, perfect for those summer nights
Finally, August, which saw the first ever Construct Israel event – “Massive’. The event was a showcase of local DJ/MC talent and was immediately followed up by a second event, which featured Swiss DJ SubVibz from Switzerland.
It’s been a crazy summer for Construct. Our ever-growing platform is still in its infancy and yet we already have a great hard-working team, allowing us to push the boundaries of what people think a small music label can achieve. I can assure you that things are only getting bigger and better.
I’m happy to see Construct International is getting in shape. I am also proud to be a part of the Construct Sound family.
Construct Europe is eager to get on pace with the U.K side. The future looks bright, as we are having talks with potential artists for our Construct Techno department, and we welcome Valkore Beatz. Who will be releasing in the near future through the Construct Techno platform. I will try to create the same feeling as Motown in the positive sense. I also want to ensure that we have a positive environment where everybody feels at home, artist and partygoer alike.
Next month we will start the preparation for building a studio in the Netherlands. I want to thank all the people for the support, we are making good progress.
In summation, Construct Sound Europe is slowly getting started, it will take some time to get everything up and running but the future looks bright.
Join us on our journey, let’s combine forces and we will get there.
I’m really proud of the vision we have at Construct Sound and of the execution of that vision by my team. These are people who have spent many late nights trying to realise our collective goals and each and every person involved should feel excited about the future.
I know I am!
We have some exciting developments coming up in the future;
