Sony has announced the relaunch of Deconstruction Records. In a joint venture between Sony’s Senior Vice President of A&R Mike Pickering, one of the founder members, and Three Six Zero Group’s AnD press, the dance imprint will return with a series of back catalogue releases before signing new artists later in the year.
Deconstruction Records was founded in 1987 and ran until 2001. It quickly gained a strong reputation for cutting-edge, contemporary dance music. Beyond signing the major crossover dance hits of the time, the label excelled in developing artists such as Black Box, M People, Way Out West, Sasha, Republica, Kylie Minogue, N Joi, and many more, and was at the forefront of the Italo house movement. Deconstruction was also the parent label for Concrete Recordings, responsible for acts such as Lionrock, Death In Vegas, Dub Pistols, and others.
Working with AnD Press, the label’s first re-release is Sasha’s ‘Xpander’, accompanied with new mixes, and available via Beatport from 3rd August. Following in September will be Lionrock’s ‘Packet Of Peace’, complete with the seminal Chemical Brothers’ remix. Further releases will be announced in due course.
