Label styling, A&Ring and plotting comes from:
Neil Rushton credited for introducing Detroit techno to Europe via Kevin Saunderson & Derrick May, Juan Atkins. Manager of Octave One & Inner City during their ‘Big Fun’ and ‘Good Life’ glory days and joint owner of one of dance music’s most fabled labels Network Records. Part of the ultra cool Birmingham dubmeisters Groove Corporation and Max Bloom, a former A&R man for Jive Records & Warner Bros, AIM board member DJ/Engineer/Remixer/Producer for The KLF, Lighthouse Family, David Bowie, Backstreet Boys & Shara Nelson & various others (Way to many to mention on here!)
A shared passion for dance music, which led to the creation of the suSU, means that all we concentrate solely on, is quality underground music, which allows our artists and producers to nurture their music and develop in a productive environment.
There is no doubt that suSU is a small, independent label but our size means trust and integrity as well as an attention to detail that is undoubtedly the greatest attribute we offer our artists.
