Focus on


In the Focus On for the month of May we cross the Atlantic Ocean to arrive in Los Angeles to learn a little more about the label Culprit. It started out in early 2009 as an outgrowth of a party series put together by the Droog DJ collective.

Over the years, the imprint has become a vehicle for high quality releases from some of the finest young underground dance music talent, including Hot Natured, Lee Foss, Subb-an, Shonky, M A N I K, Matt Tolfrey, Inxec and Gavin Herlihy.

The label has provided an initial platform of recognition for rising stars like Russia’s Special Case, Mexico’s Climbers and LA’s own Clovis. Culprit’s musical output is deep modern house music across subgenres.

Throughout the month, we will present mixes from the following artists:

  • Climbers
  • Ahmet Sisman
  • Nikko Gibler
  • Luca Bacchetti
