Launched in January 2006 by Kevin Griffiths, Tsuba is rightly regarded as one of the world’s key players in underground house music, with over seventy releases in its colourful eight-year history. Tsuba has always been about forward-thinking, dancefloor-focussed music with depth and longevity, and in 2014, as Griffiths settles into his new Southern hemisphere surroundings, it shifts its borders from house into more expansive waters.
The recent move to Australia has not diminished any of founder Griffiths’ astute ear for quality, and in 2014 the label has widened its horizons to embrace a broader palette of sounds taking a more eclectic approach to its output. Alongside the forward-thinking house Tsuba has been known for, the label has delved deeper into the realms of Slo-Mo House, Disco, Techno and beyond.
As a producer, in addition to several high profile Tsuba releases, second single ‘Cantona Kung Fu’ was no 2 in Deep House on Beatport for one month, Kevin continues to collaborate with good friend and ex- Peace Division man, Justin Drake. To date the pair have released on 8 Bit, Fear Of Flying and of course Tsuba and have a new Vinyl Only project titled Midnight Special with two 12” released in 2014.
As a DJ, Kevin is a regular at Fabric in London with over 20 appearances to date, and over the past 2 years has racked up the air miles with gigs in Japan, Korea, Ibiza, Paris, Berlin, Vienna, Zurich, Turin, Genova, Valencia, St Petersberg, New Zealand, New Caledonia and the Canary Islands.
Musically you can expect a set filled with hypnotic house, classics and vinyl only releases, all geared towards the dancefloor and creating a killer underground party.
