Moving Shadow

Profile:
UK label run by Rob Playford originally from the small lounge of a house in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, UK, before relocating to the second floor of the former Trident Studios building.

Employees included Simon Colebrooke (A&R), Sean O'Keeffe (Design), Paul Rhodes (promotions), Caroline Butler (Label Manager) & Rob Playford's mother Margaret doing accounts.

Also used to own the Section 5 record shop in London, taking over the premises from Lucky Spin a day after they moved out.

Initially a Hardcore and Jungle label in the early 1990s, continuing to release Drum 'n' Bass until around 2008 when it ceased operation.

I Wonder If The Moving Shadow Logo Was Based On The 1952 Picasso Painting?

From Hardcore to Jungle to Drum&Bass, Moving Shadow covered a musical palette that few labels in electronic dance music have.
It helped launching the careers of some of the biggest names in the scene; Omni Trio, E-Z Rollers, Dom&Roland, Technical Itch and Aquasky, to name just a few. Labelboss Rob Playford, although always a bit in the 'shadows', deserves all the credit a man can get for keeping the overall quality of the label on such a high level. Forever in the mind, body and soul! Respect is everyting.

Easily the best Jungle, Nu-Skool Breaks, and Drum n Bass label. Ever.

The best Hardcore, Hardcore Jungle, Jungle and Drum n Bass label ever. Rob made sure all bases were covered, pure vibes from every corner of moving shadow. A label that was a musical book with a beginning, an amazing middle and massive end, trust me I have not forgotten the other labels from back in the day, the ones still going from back in the day, and even the new ones of today. Shadow had something other labels just didn't have, just listen to the array of tracks. Top table music! Our scene has been oh so blessed.

this label was one of the key components of the underground urban dance music scene
in the UK during the 90's. They were instrumental in the transformation of hardcore/ jungle
into drum & bass around '94 - '95, and more or less invented the atmospheric drum &
bass sub-genre single handedly. Their 1991 release by 2 Bad Mice "Bombscare" is
probably the single most important rave hardcore tracks ever produced.

Just a damn shame that this label folded. Some absolute classics tracks and artists released on this great label. Drum & Bass history was made during its formative years in the early to mid nineties. lovely memories. RIP Moving Shadow.

A legendary label. MS released so many classics that's it's real sad that they don't release tunes anymore. The label that started off Dom & Roland, Tech Itch & Ray Keith to name but a few.
