stress records was one of the most prolific dance labels of the 90s. brothers in rhythm, kathy brown, sure is pure, hustlers convention, bedrock, sasha…..at the time much of it wasn’t actually for me, but they never simply ploughed one furrow – each release could’ve had some amazing noise, so each got a listen.
the stress logo was ace, each 12″ sleeve was well designed and they were made with good quality stock. stress records had an overall quality filter few other labels matched.
chris & james ‘calm down’ was a favourite (and would probably be here if i could find the record….), but here’s the none-more-happy, cud sampling, time to make a brew, delorme/dharma bums mix of ‘gimme a smile’ by lost tribe.
