If it is possible to have a favourite label, then Tru Thoughts has to be mine. It is the only label that I know I could blindly buy any of their releases and like it. If they offered a service where they just automatically sent me each new release and charged my credit card, I would sign up.

And that from a label that releases a real variety of styles - from Drum & Bass to Down-Tempo, from Hip Hop to Electronica, from (Nu) Soul to Colombian Funk, from a classic Soul diva to House, from (Nu) Jazz to Brazillian Samba, the list goes on and on. And although it is a very British Label, in terms of pride in their location and support for British artists, this is not just a UK love in - artists from all over the globe are signed up and a close relationship with Ubiquity in the States (who clearly are of a similar mind-set) allows music to cross over the Atlantic. However you pigeon-hole music, this label probably has something for you - and regardless of style you can bank on quality musicianship and production.

But, despite such a variety of styles, this is no disparate collection of musicians. There is always a Tru Thoughts "flavour" - it always just makes sense that it is a Tru Thoughts release and sits nicely alongside the rest of the roster. Regardless of how different one artist is from another, somehow it fits into a musical taste - chances are that if you like one you will like them all, even if you can't quite see how you could want an album by a New Orleans Marching Brass Band in your collection.

Tru Thoughts, along with sister label, Hip Hop orientated Zebra Trafic is one of the few labels where you can buy a record without knowing about the individual artist and be pretty certain that it will get you bopping and smiling away. Quantic for instance is a must for any record collection and their Shapes/Mono Compilations range from sharp hip hop rhymes to smooth funky beats and jazz roots. keep up the good work guys
