This year at Glastonbury Festival, Dungeon Meat had the honour of closing the one and only NYC Downlow again in the block 9 field . Anyone who has experienced this uniquely freak-tastic party pantheon knows just how amazing and liberating it is . Everything from the production to the music programming is done with an eye for detail and quality. Known by many as the “naughty corner” there is nowhere quite like it on the planet and for us it is always a highlight of our yearly calendar. So as a tribute to this wonderful party we decided to do a ltd edition DJ mix c.d that we handed out to people over the course of the weekend . Inspired by the infamous Sound Factory NYC we put together 1hr of classic underground tunes that captured the essence of this legendary club. For those that weren’t lucky enough to be there and grab a hard copy here it is for the rest of the world to feed your ears with .
We hope you dig the music and enjoy the vibe .
After a solid start to 2015 with the Parisian power house POINT G we are bringing some more ” G force ” from another master craftsman … Mr G is no stranger to the world of house and techno and needs little introduction . We are super excited to welcome him to the label … a true Dungeon Master indeed and a great addition to our sonic force of beat butchers .
As expected he effortlessly swings his axe between his trademark sounds over 4 tracks and delivers an EP that represents the classic MR G sound and at the same time represents another chamber of the Dungeon Meat vibe .
Press play and enter the SWEAT BOX .
Dungeon Meat are back with a bang and start 2015 with a mighty slam of the hammer . The 4th EP to come from the dungeons and a special one as the boys enlist one of their long time inspirations POINT G aka DJ Gregory to deliver his first ep for the label . This heavy 3 track collection marks the first collaboration between the Parisian don and Leeds’ finest beat butchers . An alliance that will have fans of both artists hot under the collar . DM are very honoured to be the first label outside of POINT G’s own imprints to release a full ep from him. Here POINT G delivers a selection of his trademark stripped back club bangers ready to do the damage on any dance floor . If this is a taste of things to come then we can’t wait to hear what is served up in the near future from this united force.
Our 3rd release is another artist debut and comes from a name that might not have fallen on your ears yet but we guarantee you’ll be hearing a lot more from this fresh talent. At only 18 years of age, Julian Alexander is our youngest bionic beat butcher to join the team of Dungeon Masters . With a background in Jazz & Hip Hop , a multi instrumentalist and a passion for underground house , Julian steps up to the plate with his own unique style , exploring an even darker chamber of the “dungeon” sound. Stripped down to the bare bones his minimalist approach brings his dynamite drums and sub sonic voodoo to the forefront and troubles even the biggest bass bins with his thick low end frequencies . One of the tracks UNDRGR he wrote when he was only 16 years old highlighting what a real natural talent we have on our hands. It’s with great pleasure we present to you this slammin’ e.p from our next generation .
Grab this solid serving of meat and potatoes (beats n’ bass) right here and at all other quality beat butchers

So what do you get when you cross one of the hottest House bands in the world with the sick mind of Brawther ? You get this rare, rocking remix from the big man himself … His “Mean Dub” of “My Offence” by Hercules & Love Affair has got all the ingredients of the “Dungeon Meat” sound and has been doing the damage everywhere it gets dropped…… This is the definition of CUNTY .
Out now in digital download and coming soon on ltd edition 12″ .
We are really looking forward to this one … Music Is Love have been bringing some heavyweight line ups to Sankey’s in Manchester and we are very happy to be included in May’s party . These guys don’t mess about and neither do we so expect a serious sonic assault on the night . We will be doing a live set but also spinning records afterwards so it will be a rare (pun intended) treat for fans of the label as we are not doing many live sets this year. We can’t wait to do it all again after our debut at Fabric and really hope that everyone who missed that gig can make it to this one. Get the date in you diary and get some meat in you derriere.
Ticket’s are on sale now , Hope we see some of you there .
