Guerilla Records | Label Profile

 

Guerilla Records is one of those labels I’ve hung onto the vinyl of all these yeards. The UK based label was founded in 1990 by William Orbit, John Gosling, and Dick O’Dell (Orbits Manager). It specialised in a style of progressive house that they called "Dub House", with artists such as D.O.P, Moody Boyz, Spooky, React 2 Rhythm, Bassomatic, S1000, The Drum Club, Roy Davis Jr, DJ Pierre, Felix ‘Da’ Housecat, and of course William Orbit and was a key player in the development of the progressive house sound in the UK in the early 90s.

 

The label's distinctive blue camouflage generic sleeve was designed by graphic designer Steve Cook, known for his design and art direction of the British comic 2000 AD.

 

My personal favourites were Spooky - Schmoo, S1000 - Flatliners and Various Artists - Dub House Disco are my personal standaouts including a few Leftfield remixes.

 

Guerilla Records Ltd was wound up in 1995, although tracks are still floating around retailers and streaming services - like the playlist below.
