Damu Announces New Label, First Release
- Words: Christian Santana
Mancunian producer Damu (a.k.a. Sam Schorb) now has a new title to add to his resume: label head. The Bubblin' Up tunesmith has created Fulcrum Records and recruited 19-year-old prodigy Paleman (pictured above) as his first signee. Paleman, who also hails from Manchester, will release his debut record, a three-track 12" titled All Good, via Damu's imprint on July 16, and judging from the snippets that have been shared online, it's going to give Fulcrum a solid start. While waiting for the tunes to drop, you can check out some of those pan-genre sounds below, as well as enter a contest to win a free test pressing of the upcoming record on Fulcrum's Facebook page.
