6 Running Back
Established in 2002 by Gerd Janson and Thorsten Scheu (though now it's mainly DJ and producer Gerd at the helm), Running Back is known for forward-thinking, modern electronic disco and quality analogue house that continues to push the boundaries of 4/4. Leon Vynehall recently released his artist album 'Rojus' (Designed To Dance) on the imprint, which very much serves as a who's who of talented underground artists. Redshape, Theo Parrish, Phillip Lauer, Matthew Styles, Mr.G, Move D have all offered their services. Most dance music fans will have heard Todd Terje's 'Ragysh' from 2011, a release that very much epitomises the hypnotic, groove laden, style of the label. In fact the modern disco overtones, which often strike a similar chord to the Nordic disco scene is what makes Running Back more than just another house label. Such is the cult status of the imprint, it's the place that many big, established artists would kill to release on for the kudos.
