Stress Records pays homage to ‘Club Culture’ by resurrecting the iconic series


Following the successful return of Stress Records 2018, the label pay homage to the history of Stress by resurrecting one of the most iconic dance album series of 1990s ‘Club Culture’.

The Stress label brought the world many seminal house tracks in the 1990s including Bedrock ‘For You Dream Of’, Last Rhythm – Last Rhythm and Greed’s ‘Pump Up The Volume’. During the 1990s Stress was considered one of the world’s greatest independent record labels, where it became known for it’s growing influence on the progressive house scene. Now, at a time when nightlife itself is under threat, there has never been a more important time to celebrate how important club culture is to the UK and the world.

The 24 track album showcases exciting new talent the label has developed, alongside today’s cutting edge artists providing a range of exclusives and unreleased material amongst current club hits. The sound captures the sonic essence of Stress Records, and clubland today including talent such as Prospa, Will Easton, Tommy Farrow, Eli Brown, Dusky and more. Whilst young and exciting acts such as Tibasko, HUGO and Leo Kalt provide weighty exclusives to this incredible double mix album. 

To celebrate the relaunch of Club Culture a limited edition Stress vinyl sampler (their first vinyl release since 1999) will be available in stores, alongside a series of live streams from selected artists featured on the album and a limited run of merch in partnership with Wasted Heroes – all celebrating the rich and diverse culture that has emerged from those heady days of the early 90’s. Stress has consistently soundtracked the evolution of house music across the UK, providing seminal moments of ‘Club Culture’ and that will always remain.

‘We wanted to create a collection that showcased the energy of an emerging clubland today, showcasing just how far electronic music has come and join the dots between those early 90’s experimentations to the global community it is today and celebrate just how much clubs contribute not only to the dance music industry but the wider world and culture at large’ – Sean Brosnan (DJ, Radio Host, Remixer).

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.
