NRK Sound Division



The NRK record label was conceived in 1996 by founders Nick Harris and Redg Weeks.

Since 1992 NRK had been one of the UK's pioneering DJ Agencies, holding the books for a multitude of artists and DJs like Larry Heard, Derrick Carter, Carl Craig, Dimitri From Paris, Ian Pooley, Motorbass and Mousse T.

Throughout their time as booking agents and promoters Nick & Redg yearned to channel their energy and enthusiasm directly into the music, they saw too many tired labels pidgeon-holing their output, terrified of eclecticism within the house sound.

So, the NRK label was born, with King Street supremo Nelson Rosado penning the first release, 'House 'n' Kontrol back in 1996. The second release was to cement the reputation of Canada's Nick Holder as a leading light in deep house circles.

His friendship with Redg (half Canadian) led to the signing of 'Paradise,' a sun-kissed, balearic, deep-house classic, complemented by an outstanding mix from the Salt City Orchestra. The desirable NRK catalogue gained much momentum in its first year, with killer-cuts from Ian Pooley, Plastic Avengers, Dimitri From Paris, Lenny Fontana and Freeform Five amongst others. Since then NRK has gone from strength to strength, consistently putting out killer singles which recently had one of DJ Mag’s house reviewers confidently stating: “In my opinion NRK are one of the best labels around.” Their excellent Nite:Life compilation series has seen some of the world’s best jocks stepping up to the one’s and two’s to mix their favourite tracks. If you like great quality house music, this is definitely a label you want to follow closely.
