On a Thursday in November
Well, it was good while it lasted. Skull Disco’s latest compilation Soundboy’s Gravestone Gets Desecrated By Vandals marks the final release in a series of sought after gems on the ground breaking Bristol based imprint.
Often referred to as “fringe” in the early days of Dubstep’s rise to fame, Skull Disco will undoubtedly leave an impressive mark on modern underground music. One of the first to forge the way for the current love affair between Minimalist Techno and the UK based Garage sub genre, Skull Disco always seamed two years ahead of the rest of the game. DIY to the core, the label’s music, operations, artwork and message was a labor of love and although we thank Shackleton and Appleblim deeply for all their hard work, Skull Disco will be missed greatly at CCHQ.
Attached is one of my faves from the Skull Disco camp. Released in 2006, I think this tune does an amazing job at highlighting how far ahead of their time this label was.
