Direct Drive

Direct Drive

Profile:
First label manager was Jimmy Crash, with Adam X occasionally doing A&R. The first 8 releases featured Direct Drive Records as a label name.
Jimmy sold the label to Mid-Town Records in 1994, then some of the back catalogue to Hot Music in Miami later on.

When M&C bought the label, the catalogue numbers were reduced to 2 position on purpose, since it's virtually a different label. (ie: DDR 24 instead of DDR 024). Also their logo changed with that.

Typical Brooklyn-style hard-Acid label. Some releases are really hardcore while some are softer.
The label was bought by a Dutch company in 1994. Releases thereafter (from DDR 24 on) were more on the Acid trance/groovey techno tip.
