Cheap Thrills celebrate 10 Years




Ten years ago, Cheap Thrills – helped pioneer the ‘fidget’ house sound and with it champion a new, fresh sound which kicked started the careers of is out founders and key artists on the label.

Launched by Hervé in 2008, Cheap Thrills quickly became an outlet for high quality club music, and more importantly – a platform for the early productions of now-household names like Fake Blood, Kissy Sell Out, Rack n Ruin (who became Gorgon City) and Jack Beats.

Hervé says “I started the label primarily as an outlet for my own music as Hervé, but being so immersed in the scene and exposed to so much incredible new music, it grew into a platform for me to help and develop new artists”

With a decade’s worth of music in their back catalogue, Cheap Thrills have gone all out to mark the occasion with several compilations planned to drop over the coming months.  The first is going to be a 10 track ‘Free Thrills’ download featuring the hitters plus Machines Don’t Care, Mella Dee, Detboi, Taiki Nulight and more. Then on 6th July they are releasing a brand new album of music from Fake Blood, Hervé, Audio Bully and more.

“I wanted to celebrate the ten year anniversary with a compilation of 10 old favourites and 10 brand new tracks to give a sense of where we started and where we are now (I like symmetry too!). It’s a bit of a special one because on the new comp we have the return of Fake Blood and The Count and Sinden – it’s taken a lot of effort to pull this one together, but I can’t wait to get it out.” – Hervé

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
