One of dubstep’s original pioneers, Loefah started the infamous dmz label with Mala and Coki [Digital Mystikz]- a label which is still thriving today.
2009 then saw the birth of an additional imprint, SWAMP81, a reflection of Loefah's growing awareness of all kinds of music beyond the strictly dubstep side of things. Working with the likes of Kryptic Minds, Ramadanman, Pinch or Instra:mental, SWAMP81 is the sound of bass music universal.. The fast growing label is now home to releases of heavyweights like Skream, Boddika, Addison Groove, Zed Bias & more.
Loefah has a vision... although he seems to be the only one who can see it - and he doesn't quite know how to articulate it. "Swamp shit" is the phrase you'll find Peter Livingstone use most often to describe the music he releases on his imprint. This inability to categorize SWAMP81's output isn't merely a label boss playing dumb and refusing to be pigeonholed. Since hitting its stride with the release of Addison Groove's game-changing "Footcrab," SWAMP81 has rode a thrilling wave of ambiguity, establishing it as arguably the most exciting and vital imprint to emerge from post-dubstep London.
Rewind to dubstep London, and Livingstone is one third of DMZ—arguably the scene's most exciting and vital imprint. Alongside childhood friends Mala and Coki, the group played a vital role in shaping the sound and course of the emergent genre. Along with releasing classic 12-inches and throwing legendary parties - Dubstep grew from its UK roots, and DMZ travelled the world with it..
