Cut The Mustard Recordings – CTMR
London-based duo, Rick Cee and Armack (AKA Rob McBride), realised their vision in 2012 with the creation of Cut The Mustard (CTM) Recordings – “London’s Independently Global” house music label.
Both owners have been involved at the top end of the house music scene for over a decade, DJing and promoting at some of the biggest clubs in the UK, Ibiza and throughout the world. Over this time they built a strong network of fellow producers and DJs who often expressed a similar concern – they know they are producing good quality tracks, but focusing solely on their local market (as many unknown producers and labels often do), they can’t achieve the level of promotion that they require in order to gain significant recognition.
CTM’s ( Cut The Mustard ) ethos is to be a local independent label, founded and based in London, but with a truly Global presence.
CTM’s ( Cut The Mustard ) is signing a diverse range of artists throughout the world, who share a common love of underground house music and a common talent of producing tracks that cut it. By joining CTM’s ( Cut The Mustard ) artists commit to remixing each other’s tracks, and playing and promoting them within their local cities – with the combined result meaning that everyone achieves a much greater exposure than they could have otherwise achieved alone. Supplement this with CTM’s ( Cut The Mustard ) first class distribution routes to virtually all major digital sellers of house music, and it really is an attractive start-up package for ambitious, like minded and talented producers.
CTM Recordings ( Cut The Mustard ) is also a frequent host of exclusive label parties, where you can expect some of the finest deep, soulful and uplifting tech house to guide you through the day, including EXCLUSIVE previews of upcoming CTM ( Cut The Mustard ) releases.
