Hi all, In August 2018 we will embark upon the recording of a new UK Subs project which will take the form of a brand new 5 track EP. As you will know, our previous two offerings were released in association with our friends at Pledge Music. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank Pledge for all of their efforts throughout our last two (very successful) campaigns. However, in the spirit of always striving to do something new and different, this time around we have decided to go it alone and put out the first ever fully independent release in the history of the UK Subs. We'll be operating as our own record label 'Subversive UK Records', self-publishing, as well as handling every single aspect of the production, design, manufacture and delivery of the record from start to finish.

'How we made Now That's What I Call Music 100

The Now series has sold more than 120m copies in the UK since it launched in 1983 The 100th edition of Now That's What I Call Music will be released this Friday, featuring the biggest chart hits of the last four months. We went behind the scenes at Abbey Road as the Now team chose the tracks for the compilation's centenary.

"It's Now day!" declares Jenny Fisher, settling into a sofa in a relaxed, but cramped little room on the second floor of Abbey Road. Quietly spoken but authoritative, she's here to decide, compile and master the tracklisting for Now That's What I Call Music 100, which is set to be one of the year's biggest-selling CDs.

The Now series began in 1983 as a way of showcasing the success of Virgin Records which, at the time, was having an unprecedented run of hits with acts like Culture Club, Phil Collins and UB40.

A visual journey through 28 years of club culture with Berlin DJ Fiedel

The producer and longtime Berghain resident takes us through his incredible personal archive. Since Fiedel visited his "first real techno club" in December of 1990, he hasn't 'just' played at but has also attended some of the world's most storied club nights, parties and live shows - collecting flyers and ephemera from them along the way. Ahead of a Saturday night set at Berghain on the 30th June, and new vinyl-only compilation SEELEN.002 which includes his track 'Troll Bait', Fiedel shares his favourite memories from the past 28 years with us. Consider it an intimate journey through European music scenes for nearly three decades. UFO December 1990 Let's start at the beginning. This was my first visit to a real techno club.
