Metalheadz is a pioneering drum and bass record label based in the United Kingdom. Founded in 1993 by Doc Scott and Goldie, it has been home to some of the drum and bass scene's brightest talent and is notable for the high quality of its back catalogue. The Metalheadz back catalogue features almost every major figure in the history of the genre, with artists such as Photek, Dillinja, Adam F, Source Direct and Ed Rush contributing major productions to the imprint.
Additionally, Metalheadz released the groundbreaking Platinum Breaks series of compilations, which were hailed by critics as the uniquely futuristic sound of young, multiracial Britain. They showcased a maturing genre of music that displayed the influences of reggae, hip-hop, house and techno and were highly-sophisticated and intricately-produced, contrary to the image of the music that had been presented by the mass media up to that point. Before their release, drum and bass compilations had been more closely associated with live DJ mix albums of varying quality, and the interest in the Platimum Breaks series proved instrumental in bringing the scene from its underground origins to the brink of mainstream success (at least in the UK).
The Metalheadz label was also the driving force behind the seminal Metalheadz Sunday Session Club Nights, which achived a legendary status at London's Blue Note club. Goldie, the club night, the label and its artists were some of the key elements in drum and bass/jungle's mid-to-late 90's mainstream resurgence. Metalheadz continues to put on nights worldwide, and has a current monthly residency at London's Herbal club.
"If the label was to end tomorrow I wouldn't be here. No deal, what deal, Metalheadz remains, because I don't learn anything if I don't go out and listen to the boyz."
"The label's my utopia."
"The label is a family."
"We take risks."
"This label is based on fate."
