Dropping (musical) bombs since 2007 rEJEKT mUSIC was started as a platform for Iain Taylor and Mark Ashworth to release under their "rEJEKT" production moniker and create a soundtrack that represented a series of warehouse parties they had been throwing around the north of England. Some memorable dance floor moments ensued and regular support from some of the worlds top jocks followed. The label quickly grew to become a place where their peers could also express themselves without fear of intervention! Join us . . . . We are the rEJEKTS x
Curses - The Besser Man EP
4 Brand New Original Tracks
Released - 10/10/2016
Curses stands for a dark romantic take on House and Techno, combining influences of sexy Italo with nostalgic snares and synths. Recent releases have seen light on labels like NEIN, OFF, Let’s Play House alongside his own Safer At Night imprint and now we welcome him to rEJEKT Music.
What you get are 4 tracks of lo slung, late night analogue House and Techno with fingers and toes in the Indie Dance, Tech House & Minimal pigeon holes. The thing that sets Curses apart is a distinctive "Dark Drum" sound which is prevalent across all of these original tracks and on this EP he also manages to incorporate elements of Drum N Bass, Hip Hop & Synth Pop to give something that is not only completely original but also mature and refined.
As always we prefer to let the music do the talking. . . . Please enjoy irresponsibly x

2 NEW TRACKS + REMIXES
This represents a slightly different musical direction for rEJEKTS. We almost put this out under the moniker of "Species" to signify our evolution to a more musical and organic sound.

This Ep gives you a more cinematic and epic feel buiding up into the kind of rolling dancefloor groove you've come to expect. This has mustered support for some real legends like Jam El Mar (Jam & Spoon), MR C, Marco Carola, Ritchie Hawtin and Nathan Coles alongside fresher names like Reboot, Paco Onsuna, Techinasia, Dark & Stormy, Butch, Amine Edge & Dance and even the legendary DJ EZ.
