Drum & bass label and club night Renegade Hardware closes its doors.
In a statement on the label’s Facebook, they conclude that “All good things must come to an end”, while explaining that they “fully intend to go out with a bang, and we have planned a series of events and releases building up to what will be our big event finale in February 2016.”
Renegade Hardware was founded in 1996 by Clayton Hines and Mark Hill, releasing music by Future Forces, Usual Suspects and more. They started throwing parties the next year, at seminal London club The End.
In their Facebook statement, they claim that they “started throwing parties with much the same ethos as we have always ran the label, as the home of the underdog, standing behind our sound and our artists when nobody else would.”
“We have had an amazing run and countless good times”, the statement continues, “whilst taking the Renegade Hardware brand around the world, but we think it is now time to close this chapter and move on to other endeavors.” [via Hyponik]
