Founded in 1993 in Manchester by DJ, producer, music lover Eric Powell and Eric Gooden, Bush Records set out to become the foremost purveyor of quality house and techno, and all beats in between.
Bush Records is consistently testing the traditional parameters of electronic music, and throughout the last decade has effectively redefined the dance music industry1s perceptions of techno, house and electro. Born out of a desire to present quality electronic music that is innovative and diverse but always engineered for late-night dancefloor mayhem, Bush Records has since spawned two further imprints to accommodate a diverse range of musical styles and genres.
This has allowed the Bush label to become more predominantly focussed upon techno and tech-house in recent years, while newer imprint Boo Records caters more specifically to the needs of house music enthusiasts, and Meltdown Communications presents a sophisticated collection of breaks, electro and experimental sounds and structures.
Since its inception in 1993 Bush Records has presented the production talents of artists such as Dave Clarke, Timo Maas, Trevor Rockliffe, Thomas Schumaker, and Devilfish, and with some one hundred 12 inch releases, seven long players and a handful of samplers and CD releases, the Bush Records imprint remains one of the most predominant techno labels in the world.
Bush releases such as Andrew McLauchlan1s "Love Story" have made their way into the record crates of the world1s foremost taste-maker DJs such as Jeff Mills and Luke Slater, and tracks by artists such as Devilfish (who were first discovered and promoted by Bush) have been licensed for release on compilations by DJs across all genres of dance music including Carl Cox, Mauro Picotto and Danny Tenaglia.
The future focus of Bush Records is to continue to challenge, develop and redefine the sounds and structures of electronic music, and in particular, techno. Through artists such as Carl Cox, Joey Beltram, Steve Ward
