Black Cock Records

Profile:
For counterfeit editions of releases originally on Black Cock Records, see Black Cock Records (2) Record label founded and run by DJ Harvey and Gerry Rooney in 1992. They produced and distributed unlicensed legendary edits which became heavily sought after and widely bootlegged. "Re-edits were hardly popular when Harvey and Gerry Rooney founded Black Cock Records in the early ‘90s. Black Cock showcased the real '70s flavour of disco – utterly infectious drum rolls, guitar lines straight out of the Boogie Nights era. Black Cock were about real instrumentals, not synth-based sounds. And their edits extended the dancefloor impact of the originals by making those key instrumentals the main event." - Redbull, Manu Ekanayake 2016.

Simon 'Lovejoy' was the engineer on the first two Black Cock Records 'BCOK007 - No way Back' & 'Black Cock BCOK069'. All Future Black Cock records BCOK077 ,BK068 , BK076, BK016 & BK017 etc were recorded & produced in DJ Harvey's home Studio by Gerry Rooney & Dj Harvey. “I consider re-editing a part of the DJs job through the '70s and '80s and most mixes are edited in some way. But it had become a bit of a lost art by the early '90s and although we started off doing tape edits, with the rise of hard drives it became easier, so that's why there came to be a proliferation of edits in the 2000s.” DJ Harvey, Redbull 2016.
