Legend Records (16)

Legend Records (16)

Profile:
Label set up in 1993 by DJ Gwange, Q Project and Spinback With The Invisible Man being the main engineer at the label

The Invisible Man quote
Legend records was actually financed by a friend who always preferred to stay anonymous, back then he was never involved in the music making he just helped with the finances to press stuff up. I'm sure he'd be happy for you to use his alter-ego if you like "DJ Hood" - I know he'll appreciate that. haha! The plot thickens...

With Legend Records it was often Simon (Gwange) and myself (The Invisible Man) who would do a lot of the general running around to distro's and cutting houses as I already knew the industry from having several releases under my belt, and besides we were ones with transport. however sometime during 94 both myself and Simon had to go AWOL for a while him for personal reasons, and me 'cause I had quite literally burnt myself out.. no, not too many drugs, more from doing too many tunes and not sleeping or eating properly etc. mind you, working with Quiff (Q Project) and Smithy (Spinback) is quite possibly enough to give anyone a nervous breakdown
The speech from my tune "The End" seemed to have become a freaky prophecy.. very spooky.

It was at that point that I let Brillo (who used to work at Vinyl Distribution in Reading) take over my Timeless label and "DJ Hood" went on to finance a small studio setup for Quiff and Smithy so they could continue Legend Records without me, the last track I did with them was LEG-013 - by this point they had both spent a lot of time with me and had a pretty good idea of how to go about things, so after a short stop gap to re-assess the situation and learn the equipment they continued Legend for a few releases and finally wound it up at release number 16

In 1995 DJ Gwange surprisingly quit Legend and due to increasing financial pressure from the labels backer, both Q Project and Spinback decided to shut the label down and set up new label C.I.A. (Computer Integrated Audio).

Please note that LEG 014 can now be found here: Aquarium / City In The Clouds

Simply one of the best labels to grace the early Scene for me anyway, I just never get bored of re-listening or mixing to this excellent back catalogue.. spanning the end of hardcore to jungle and Dnb ..the greedy part of me just wished there was more ;) Salute Gwange / Qproject / Spinback ! Music n memories.. pure magic !
