LS City Records

LS City Records is to be a label of love. Set up by DJ and producer Jamie Fisher as a way of having complete control over the music he releases, rather than being at the mercy of various other label bosses, it’s an imprint born in Leeds and one which will showcase the city’ producing talent.

As someone who has been label manager for other people before, he has good A&R experience, a thorough knowledge of the way things work and a healthy collection of contacts: all these things spurred Jamie into going it alone, the result of which comes in the form of his first release, his Shapes EP’. A chunky slice of tech, it comes with remixes from rising stars Benny Royal and Lissat & Voltaxx.

Says Jamie of LS City’s outlook: “The label is just the outlet and should only have small say in the actual track and final sounds of the master – I don’t want to interfere too much, I want people to be able to express themselves and know their music will be put out as they want it to be.” That approach has attracted artists such as Richard Dinsdale and Style of Eye who are pencilled in for releases soon, and is sure to set the label in good stead. With such value placed on individual expression, then, LS City looks set to be a label which goes its own way, forging ahead in the realms of underground house and techno, so keep your ear out…

Jamie Fisher

An amazing rising star in the House scene, Jamie Fisher has earned his party stripes over the years to be published has one of the hardest working DJ/Producers on the UK circuit. As a 10-year old child listening to German and Dutch techno, the writing was pretty much on the wall for this massively successful DJ. On the decks since the age of 13 and resident at the Doncaster Warehouse club following the footsteps of DJ’s like Carl Cox aged just 17, Jamie’s talent and hard work was sailing him through the ranks. But he had bigger plans….

His own productions were signed to major and various independent labels at the mere age of 18, selling over 1,000,000 CD compilations spanning over the next few years. In 2006 after more musical experience and education working as a record buyer, Jamie set up his own record label “High Voltage Records’ and with his single ‘Just Be Good To Me’ entered the DMC World chart in first position, which then propelled the track to a top 10 hit on Beatport. Also selling a vast amount of 12” vinyl. Things were starting to go global…….

Club residencies followed at ‘Sankeys’ (Manchester), ‘Filth’ (Leeds) and the after party institution that is ‘Glasshouse’ also in Leeds which then followed up with many successful seasons in Ibiza as well as near domination of the cool northern cities entire thriving club scene. On the international front things were moving in the right direction too, tours up and down Spain, France and Italy. Guest slots in China, Thailand, Finland and Malta. His cool house grooves were slowly hitting every corner of the globe…..

Signing a deal to Chicago based record label ‘Movement Music’ with a top 10 Beatport track ‘Coming on Strong’, Jamie had firmly landed on the global music circuit with massive support and indisputable credibility. Guest mixes followed on radio shows such as Stephan M’s show, ‘Made in Miami’ which featured on ‘Radio 1’ (Greece) and Riley and Durant’s ‘NuBreed’ on ‘Galaxy FM’ (UK) further affirming his status and notability, and in 2007 Filthy Rich head hunted him for the role as label manager and sound engineer of ‘Control Freq Records’ taking care of such artists like Prok & Fitch, Filthy Rich, Micky Slim, Miles Dyson and Rob Tissera creating a wave of massive hits!

Worldwide press coverage from Mixmag, IDJ, M8 Magazine, TillLate and Metro giving Jamie a bigger platform to express his music to a wider audience. M8 Magazine also labaling him has the “One To Watch” in 2010. The same year also saw a major upheaval in the industry for Jamie and the direction he was heading. When the physical sales collapsed and after numerous legal battles, ‘High Voltage Records’ and ‘Control Freq Records’ didn’t make the cut. Turning down various roles at well established labels, Jamie once again had bigger plans. 2010 was the year of LS City Records…….

Going back to basics and in pure digital fashion, this new direction was all about the music. LS City Records signing artists such as Richard Dinsdale, Belocca, Benny Royal, Lissat & Voltaxx, Jonathan Ulysses, Stephan M and Darren Mac. With over 10 top 100’s and a massive Beatport top 10 by the label boss himself with ‘Vamped Up’. Not to mention worldwide licensing on every single release. Gathering pace release by release, day by day and a relocation to Asia, evolving seems to be a natural process.

Rapidly closing in on 2 decades of the music industry, Jamie yet again has set his standards high. New club residencies at the world renown Chi Lounge (formerly Bed Supper Club) in Bangkok. Event organising with brands such as ‘Toolroom’ and ‘Cream’ and a new partnership with close friend Darren Mac to continue the growth with LS City Records.
