From the labels page :
“It’s been a thrill to start up the PRESSURE label in 2018.
Beginning with my FLAME 1 collab with the incredible
craftsman Burial, via Miss Red’s reign of fire, and ending with
Jamaica’s dread poet Nazamba, and Japan’s underground militants G36,
it was truly a pleasure to globally spread the dub, dancehall, bass and dirt…
I decided to pass these dubplates (which had previously only exclusively featured fleetingly on my FACT magazine ‘PRESSURE’ mix), as my way of saying thx to all those that have supported my label throughout the year, and my club nights that inspired me to set up the label…
Right now, with so much dull club music clogging up eardrums and charts, its a joy to spread these fierce, feral fresh, dubplates.”
Major props to Trigga and Jamakabi for becoming PRESSURE fam…
And large thx to Nick Sayers for the Miss Red cover pic.
Lastly big bug hugs to Abdullah, Matt and Conal for the invaluable help…

Before I joined BC several years ago I was probably only familiar with the more well known labels/artists. It had never occurred to me to look a bit deeper. So many. And not just quantity, quality too. At first I didn’t recognise any of Lifestyle’s artists and almost ignored the whole label. What a mistake that would have been because some of them, such as Revaux, Klinical and Objectiv to name a few, are now amongst my favourites.
It’s bassline heaviness from start to finish. A lot of their other mixes and shows are more full-on jump-up style. Really like this one though, more of a vibey jungly flow to their mixing, which is always top quality imo.
(This was a friday night guest mix on Kiss FM (London) ).
Of the 2 tracks, real talk has a nicer flow for me. Anything by these guys usually jumps the listening queue. A lot of good dnb tracks/releases over the past few weeks too. For the moment, might aswell concentrate on the ones that match my wallet size lol Lots of good dj mixes and sets that’ll keep my ears busy too.
Might treat myself to 1 or 2 eps this wkend, but next week I need to knuckle down n get busy with more urgent needs.
