The Spotlight – First Word Records

Start listening

First Word Records is an independent record label founded nearly 15 years ago in Leeds, England by DJ Gilla and Andy H, set-up to provide an outlet for musicians in the worlds of Hip Hop, Soul, Jazz, Beats and beyond that previously had no platform. Still run today by DJ Gilla, with the assistance of DJ BobaFatt, the label now operates out of Peckham in South London.

This 90 minute mix showcases tracks from the labels more recent releases and current roster, including Tall Black Guy, Eric Lau, Children of Zeus, Yazmin Lacey, Darkhouse Family and Kaidi Tatham, as well as a few classics from the label’s back-catalogue released over the years.
