D-Zone Records

Profile:
In association with Dance Zone Records.

D-Zone was started in an Essex bedroom in early 1990. It was a way of releasing harder dance material from Andre Jacobs's original label, Dance Zone. The first release was possible due to the friendship that André had with Danny Donnelly of Boogie Times (& later Suburban Base). Dance Zone had been hit by Spartan Distribution going bust and Danny bought 1000 copies of the first d-zone track, Hypersonic "Dance Tones" that André had got Spartan to pay for. This track was produced by André & Danny and again only got recorded because of Danny. André had booked a studio session in Surrey but his car had been stolen. Danny offered to drive André to the studio in Surrey & André asked Danny if he'd like to record a track with him. D-Zone started the careers of many artists including including Micheal Gray, Jon Pearn (Bodyrox), Tim Laws (Gabrielle & Lighthouse Family), Kevin Beber & others. The label also worked with the Blapps Posse and many other great producers that André had admired from his DJ'ing days. The label stopped releasing singles after just 3 years when André wanted to try something new. The biggest selling artist on the label was Tekno Too (Tekno 2) who's anthemic Jet-Star sold over 30,000 copies in the UK alone. It missed out on a top 40 because the first batch of 5000 sleeves had the black barcode printed over the blue background which meant they couldn't be read by Gallup's chart machines, a lesson painfully learned by André. D-Zone also worked with Suburban Base, Reinforced, Strictly Underground and other labels exporting their tracks around the world. André re-payed Danny (slightly) by helping Sub Base get their first foreign deal for Sonz of a Loop Da Loop Era "Far Out" with ZYX in Germany. 2009 sees the entire D-Zone catalogue being re-mastered for digital release and the 20th anniversary compilation series along with new material (if we find anything that we love).

Worth pointing out here that the records ending with catologue serials of 'DJ' are Promo Copies.

Out of the ones I have seen, they do not contain the full tracks of the commercial releases. Two I have are one sided and have Laser Etchings on the other side.
