Great photo of some of the pioneers of Dubstep, all of whom were affiliated with the shop. Hatcha, Hijak and Skream all worked in the shop while Mala, Loefah, Coki and Benga all had their first releases on our label. Also in the photo is DJ Chefal who was always in the shop and Crazy D who was also a regular visitor. Nice to see Mala reppin' with an Apple T-shirt.

Comment: Was into all facets of dance music when I was younger, and a lot of my time - and money - was spent in various record shops: Wax City and Apple in Croydon, Blackmarket in Soho, and Remix (I think) in Camden
