2004 Dirt Crew aka James Flavour and Break 3000 launched Dirt Crew Recordings after releasing their first EP’s "Cleaning up the Ghetto Part 1+2" on MBF. The track "Rok Da House" became one of the key records of 2004, the beginning of the Electro House hype and a big hit that gave the guys worldwide recognition on the dancefloors. Also Moodmusic released two 12’s with the brilliant "808 Lazerbeam" and "Darkside" in 2004 and the "Domino" E.P. in 2005, but things really got wild when they remixed Sasse’s "Soul Sounds" which again went straight in the charts and was voted one of the best remixes of 2005 in the german "Groove" magazine and has been dropped by all major DJ’s. They also remixed the first single of the „Who made Who“ album on Gomma in 2005 and made classic remixes for artists and labels like Jennifer Cardini, Silicone Soul, 2020 Vision, Crosstownrebels, Freerange and Breastfed.
Due to their success and productivity they decided to start up their own labels named Dirt Crew Recordings and Players Paradise. Straight from the start Dirt Crew Recordings went off into the charts with the super massive remix of "Largo" by Dominik Eulberg who has set his path for success with this particular remix and is now one of Germans leading producers. But also the hot first single by Dirt Crew "What you Want" released in October 2004 is still a highlight in the whole retro old school scene.With the massive singles of James Flavour, Break 3000, Tigerskin and Jennifer Cardini the label proved to have an excellent output. With new artist like Prudo, Adultnapper, Sian and Drum Cult the label expands its view on quality house and minimalistic sounds. Combining these new artists with well known heroes of the scene like Andre Kraml and Spirit Catcher proved to be the key of success. Dirt Crew Recordings will follow this path in the future and will keep on promoting da real house sound.
Their second label Players Paradise was launched in 2005 as an offspring of Dirt Crew Recordings because the guys wanted to promote other genres as well in their catalogue and also this label took off really fast with the first two singles by Sweet Slave and Martinez. Taking it even deeper and more towards deep house but still combining it with the new crisp sound from the minimal scenes. Big remixes from Mike Monday and Serge Santiago got the people moving to the dirty sound and with new faces like the italian producer Marcello Giordani who presents his Italo-house grooves or Glasgows Mash with his sleazy Nu-Disco tracks the Dirt Crew also shows the world that there’s more to house music.
