SMALL BUT HARD LABEL is a home for underground music and art established in Berlin and London. Spearheaded by DJ Scotch Egg and visual artist Simon Fowler, Small But Hard Recordings is based around a collective of artists with a sharp punk aesthetic and boundless curiosity. Dedicated to unearthing the raw and the real, the label’s back catalogue spans noise, hip hop, and the heaviest of dub.
In the berlin based DJ music, hip hop destruction meets demented grunge vocal in a furious scat orgy. It should not make sense, but somehow Walter Gross has tapped into the vein of some other realm, and peels back a pair of grotty curtains to reveal glimpses of the divine and the unholy.
Der Warst is Circuit Bent Gameboy, while techno with B-boy attitude and Dubstract Junglist, Shins-k is riginally from Japan based in Berlin.
K-THE-I???? cut his teeth in high school freestyle cyphers and starting making a name for himself after collaborations with Cambridge, MA crews such as The Lost Channel and Komadose in the early 2000s. Kiki Ceac aka K-The-I???? is an MC and producer born in Cambridge, MA, but based in Los Angeles, California. While his spastic machinations retain a glitchy serrated edge, they are now injected with a warm sense of melody upon a backbone of vibrant synths and brilliantly-culled samples.
