>> PROFILE

Dusk Till Dawn originated in 2005 when Club Concrete decided to start a happy hardcore vinyl label to release the vocal compositions that Club Concrete artist James Xavier was writing under his Petrol Heads pseudonym. Like Club Concrete, Dusk Till Dawn was exclusively managed by Electronica Exposed with Shanty and Petrol Heads as joint label managers. Each release featured an original composition with a remix by an established happy hardcore producer. The first three releases were all by Petrol Heads and were huge successes with 'Prisoner', 'Sweet Surrender' and 'I'm Calling' receiving remixes by Cube::Hard, Sy & Unknown and Billy "Daniel" Bunter & CLSM respectively.

Dusk Till Dawn then decided to sign compositions by other artists and quickly snapped up The Acolyte Featuring Amy's 'Heal My Soul' and 'Draw To You', Sean Apollo, Fraud & Ionosphere Featuring Treasure 'Obsession' and Fracus Featuring Lisa Abbott 'Give Me Your Love', which received massive remixes from Kevin Energy, Cube::Hard, Hujib and DJ Stormtrooper respectively. Petrol Heads then returned to Dusk Till Dawn for 'Looking Out' and 'See 4 Eva', which were remixed by Orbit1 and Dusk Till Dawn favourite Cube::Hard, before the label concluded with Fracus & Orbit1 Featuring Lisa Abbott 'In Your Arms', which was remixed by Al Storm. All Dusk Till Dawn releases were distributed by Amato Distribution before Amato went into administration in November 2007, which effectively ended the label.

Happy hardcore released on Dusk Till Dawn was supported by many top tier happy hardcore DJs such as Kevin Energy, DJ Sy, Chris Unknown, Billy Bunter, CLSM, Brisk, Fracus, Darwin, Orbit1, Al Storm, Uraken and many more! Dusk Till Dawn also licensed music to the Hardcore Underground, Hardcore Underground 2, Hardcore Baby's Revenge - Mixed By DJ Yousuke, Hardcore Rave 2 - Mixed By Uraken and Crush On Hardcore 3 - A New Era compilation albums. Most of the compositions on the label were also included in Shanty's DJ mixes on all three volumes of Electronica Exposed's Hardcore Anthems compilation album series.

All Dusk Till Dawn releases were pressed as limited edition vinyl editions, which are all now out of print. The entire catalogue was released on CD and digital download on Electronica Exposed on EECD017 - Dusk Till Dawn - The Complete Works. The CD release is out of print but the digital download release is available from: Beatport, Juno Download and Trackitdown.
