BYBL, often pronounced as ‘Bible’ is an acronym for ‘Bite Your Bottom Lip’ referring to the face people pull when they hear a particularly exciting bass line. The London based label is run by Dan Bartholomew AKA D-Jaw. His sole aim is to release ‘House music with character’ showcasing a range of up and coming and established artists known for their unique style and approach to the underground scene.
The label has a number of releases available online through all major download channels and artists signed from the UK, America and Europe, they held a monthly residency on Hoxton FM entertaining guests and rising stars on the underground scene including Brett Gould (Snatch! / Solid Grooves), Sei A (Aus Music, Kompakt) and Strictland (Viva). Their bimonthly parties over the last year have seen Artikal (Abode) and Brett Gould return to play at venues such as Café 1001 in Brick Lane, Fortress Studios and other interesting spaces.
In 2018 the label plans to focus their attention and investments on their parties, aiming to bring in more headliners and find venues which can support their growth. Now that the label has secured a monthly show on Data Transmission radio, they have a great platform to show off their residents whilst continuing to bring in high quality guests.
Releases on the label will include an album from label boss D-Jaw, EP’s and compilations from new and already signed artists. 2018 looks to be a very busy year but that’s just the way they like it!
