Square Records 5 : Nirobi Edits

Robert Luis, A&R for Tru Thoughts Recordings in the UK. Things start with some heavy shit from the Talking Heads, Once In A Lifetime (Nirobi Edit). The original is a classic, a monster tune, but this re-edit is pure...

Paris DJs Playlist - January 2012

We're opening a new section on the site, with each month a selection of records that labels, artists and distributors sent to us. By records we mean vinyl LPs, 12 inches, 10 inches, 7 inches, and CDs.

Square Records - Onur Engin Edits EP 2 - out on Square Records

Square Records are proud to welcome back Onur Engin who has reworked some more gems from the vaults.
