leave a comment

It doesn’t sound like too long ago, but the electronic music industry has come a long way since the nineties. Today, August 1st, 2011, marks twenty years of Soma Records. It’s hard to believe, isn’t it ?

On the 1st of August, 1991, Soma Records released its first record, "Eterna" by Slam / "I.B.O." by Rejuvination, a great track and great split release with some Detroit and/or Chicago-rooted dance music. Nowadays, Soma is, as they describe themselves, one of the world’s leading electronic dance music labels.

Slam – Eterna

Rejuvination – I.B.O.

So far, the label has managed to release more than 80 albums and over 300 singles, from the likes of Slam, Funk D’Void, Alex Smoke, and The Black Dog, to name just a few. The Glasgow-based label continues to wow the electronic music world with their music, without a doubt.
