In 2004 Lot49 burst onto the music scene and brought with it a sound that incorporates Techno & Electro into Breakbeat & House. Although the label had been championing this sound for some time, it now had solid roots that it could call home. The sound was coined Tech-Funk and although it started off life as a hybrid it soon grabbed the attention of the bigger players within Dance music. Before long scene supremos such as Carl Cox, Laurent Garnier, Arman Van Buuren, James Zabiela and many other eclectic Dj's became key supporters of the label and it's newly crafted sound.
The 7 year Itch album is a dirty ride through the underground that epitomises this sound with an array of international talent from all 4 corners of the world. 16 brand new exclusive tracks from label artists Dylan Rhymes, Meat Katie, Lee Coombs, Dopamine and Odissi and up and comers Hedflux, Atomic Drop, Chevy One, Maelstrom & more. Showcasing new talent is a huge part of the label ethos so it is not unusual that new and exciting talent such as Disco Bum from Canada and Lightknife from America have been included. All this wrapped up into an exceptional mix of quality you would expect by label boss Meat Katie.
2011 will see Lot 49 continue on its path of breaking new ground and continual bar raising in bringing new and upfront music!
