50 Weapons is a sub label to Modeselektor’s primary imprint Monkeytown Records. The label is built upon the ethos to only release 50 records, hence the name 50 Weapons. Originally conceived in 2004 / 2005 whilst visiting Shlom of Boomkat in Manchester, 50 Weapons released their debut record in 2009 featuring remixes of Moderat’s debut album from Shackleton, Headhunter and T++. Following this release 50 Weapons have helped foster the careers of Cosmin TRG, Bambounou, Benjamin Damage, Phon.o, Anstam, Addison Groove and many more.
This week’s mix is a long time coming – so much so that we thought that the mere thought of it existing was just a fleeting dream in the forests of our mind – but lo and behold – the one and only Shed has stepped up to provide a sensational mix.
Cosmin TRG discusses playing back to back with Efdemin ahead of Make Me this Saturday at Corsica Studio and puts together a mix tape featuring music from STL, Planetary Assault System, Rrose, Truss, Porter Ricks and more.
