This label is STILL the 'top dog' and rightly so as it has an abundance of artists (old/new) churning out well produced, quality music.. Sadly certain people seem to dwell on The Angels Fell or Metropolis etc etc etc which are obvious timeless classics, but this is 2016+ now and electronic/digital music 'is what it is' so like it or lump it. The label has plenty of variety with people creating all sorts of wonderful sounds/melodies for the ears to be blessed with... 5/5

Check out the first 30 or so releases. The most innovative jungle / drum & bass you will ever hear. Still the sound of the future.

I think Metalheadz lost their original touch straight after 100th release and they're taking tops with amount these days. Just look how many they have released this year and how many of these tracks really was on sight. Yes, still trying to bring oldskool flavour, but why almost everything on output so meaningless ???
Someone was yelling "BIG YEARS FOR DRUM & BASS !!!". No, we're stuck somewhere in a middle of nowhere...

Hard to say who's better or no...all mheadz disco is great.
i've got around 100 12'inches in my case and i want to say...about "control my mind/winter sun" 12 inch - it's also on my top 10 of headz all the time.
right now headz are heavy, they lost mellow, funk connection.
it;s a sign of our generation.
in the past mainhead for Goldie was Rob Playford...
right now we'got Jubei after Heist...tha't s the reason...
lost most important headz tune was realised in 2010 by Lenzman - Open Page.
i hope i'd like to have more much headz music from Mheadz.
They change my mind, my life forever.
Big Respect!

*EDIT

Metalheadz is quite possibly the greatest Drum n Bass label in the business. Since 1994, the label has put out record after record of quality, if not GROUND-Breaking, material. The label has also displayed a wide spectrum of different sounds and subgenres of dnb.

Being an avid listener of Jungle, I think it's safe to say that the drum n bass scene realy owes alot to all that this label has done for it. God only knows where we'd be today if it wern't for Metalheadz.

Metalheadz took what at the time was still just party music and made it into somthing more, into an art-form. Back in '92 and '93 during the dark ages of jungle, there was a time when the evolution of the music was at a point of indecision. Metalheadz realised the full potential of the music, and Pushed it forward with all it's might. Jungle prevailed as the champion while the shallow happy-hardcore was left in the dust, doomed to spiral downwards, without a future.

(Also, I Musn't understate the importance of other pioneering labels of the time period, the other two being Good Looking Records, and Moving Shadow. Though I also must say that Metalheadz had both the superior quality controll that GLR is known for, as well as the variety and innovation of Moving Shadow, both at the same time.)

There was a very special moment in dnb from about '94 to '95, when the Jungle sound was not headed in any particular direction. New technology was available, The Production techniques had been mastered by now, loads of fresh new producers were entering the scene, and few standards had been set: The possibilities were limitless. If you listen to any of the oldschool headz releases, you'll know what I mean. Stuff like Photek's Natural Born Killa EP, or Hidden Agenda's first few releases. These works of art stand alone, and that unique sound only existed then and there, never to be seen again.

My favorites from this early era of Metalheadz include Dillinja's bass-heavy "The Angels Fell EP", J Majik's "Your Sound", The break wizardry of the one-and-only Photek on "Natural born Killa", Hidden Agenda's Jazzy Funk on "Is it Love? EP", Doc Scott's "Drumz '95", and of course, Source Direct's darkside classic "A Made up Sound". (Plus many more as well!)

By '97 the ball was rolling and there was no turning back, as the scene continued to evolve rapidly. Metalheadz kept on dishing out the biggest tunes, on into the new millenium.

024: SKYLAB, Ed Rush's techstep classic. 027: To Shape the Future, by optical - widley considered to be the bassis of neurofunk. 035 (and 039): The Darkest and Dirtiest from Total Science. 038: Marcus Intalex and ST Files' unforgetable "Universe / Lose Control" - Liquid Funk in it's prime. 042: one of my personal favorite DnB records of all time The Invaderz' "Wintersun".

Somewhere around #50, the Quality controll took a bit of a nose dive... Metalheadz was kind of hit/miss for a while in mid-2000's, but still managing to pack in a few killer 12"s here and there.

Around 2007, Metalheadz began to make a comeback starting with Commix's Groundbreaking "Call To Mind", and today, in 2010, I'm happy to be able to say that Metalheadz is back once again, with the quality and the innovation that it has had in the past.

The entire catalogue is worth checking out cause it's all fantastic.

Long Live Drum n Bass, and Long Live Metalheadz!
