Featured Event – Clashmouth Drum & Bass Record Market.

 

Clashmouth began as a private Facebook group, established in 2015 as a place for D&B promoters & record labels, small and large to share their forthcoming dates in aim to prevent any event clashes, hence the name!

 

The Clashmouth Drum and Bass Label Market was the next step to add a little more unity to the community.

 

Record Store Day 2017 saw the first ever ‘D&B Label Market’ featuring a selection of small to large independent record labels who took over Cafe 1001, setting up shop for the day to sell their records directly to the public.

 

People were attracted by the limited edition vinyl releases and merchandise.

 

The event was the brainchild of Chris Inperspective who felt there was a much ignored need for a D&B specialist label market.

There has been so many genre specific vinyl events that it seemed strange that no one had done a jungle / D&B one. After linking with Dexta the dream became a reality.

 

The event team has since grown from just Chris Inperspective and Dexta to a team of 5

The next Clashmouth Drum and Bass Label Market is expanding and moving to House of Vans London on Saturday 21st April 2018 this is due to needing a bigger space to fit all the labels in and House of Vans have been incredibly supportive of this project.

 

Clashmouth are in early plans to expand this to different countries & considering their options but they wish to spread the love far and wide.

 

On the day you can purchase plenty exclusive vinyl and merchandise from a range of drum and bass record labels across the whole spectrum of D&B.
