ABOUT THE LABEL
Uncommon records is all these things : Record Label : Festival Community : Social Project : Positive Vibration. A new dimension to The Common, this is where sonic realities morph and a new audio awareness awakens. Uncommon Records focuses on Jungle, Reggae, Drum & Bass and dancehall roots, but is really a showcase for all the musical styles represented in the Rum Shack, The Temple and The Cave, the 3 main venues in the field. With an aim to showcase incoming and guest producers alongside homegrown crew, the Common factor with all of these is a shared understanding that the music and the message are inextricably linked, as is the experience and the understanding. We are an alternative community that believe that music can heal and shape and positively affect everybody., and that the time on the dancefloor is the best medicine.
