Samurai Music Decade

Samurai Music Decade

A decade is a lengthy period of time in electronic music. There are many technological and stylistic changes that occur in a decade, perhaps none more than the last decade. We have seen digital music and the influence of the internet / social media totally transform the way we all release and consume music. Samurai Music was born at the beginning of the digital music boom, and reaches it’s decade continuing to fulfil it’s goal of staying at the forefront of these developments, releasing divergent strains of Drum and Bass and variations on the 170 / 85 BPM template.

We remain committed to desirable physical products and have maintained this through periods where our contemporaries all but abandoned their attention to vinyl production. We split Samurai Music into several offshoots over time, but now we have reached a desirable point where the Samurai name has become synonymous with adventurous curation, and we no longer need divisions for ‘sounds’.

  A musical assessment of our catalogue can really only be made by listeners, so in keeping with our approach to releasing music we wanted to make this celebration a collection of entirely new music from artists important to the label. ‘Decade’ attempts to bridge the gap of all the stylistic approaches utilised most effectively on our back catalogue while threading them into a 2017 vibe. From Samurai Music’s biggest artist success story - Tokyo Prose, through to label family regular ASC, current top tier affiliate Homemade Weapons, new face Torn, legendary historical artists Nucleus & Paradox, and of course our dear departed friend Marcus Intalex, Decade represents Samurai Music in 2017 and into the future. Phase 2 follows in early 2018.
