Music of Life

Music of Life is one of the UK's longest running independent dance music labels and the catalog has been licensed and released in over 70 countries with many chart hits in the UK, Germany, Japan, France and the USA (Harris's 'Bass how low can you go?' was a No.1 Billboard US chart hit). Many Grammy award-winning artists such as Luther Vandross, REM, Beastie Boys and Beck, have licensed from the Music of Life catalog.

Founded by influential DJ remixers, Froggy and Simon Harris in 1986, the label were at the forefront of UK hip-hop in the 1980's. Harris produced many of the best artists of the genre including Derek B, M.C. Duke, Asher D and Daddy Freddy.

Harris also produced the world's best selling series of 'Breakbeat' albums used by DJ's and producers, 'Beats Breaks and Scratches' in 12 volumes and worked with top artists Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim), Paul Oakenfold, Afrika Bambaataa and George Clinton to produce and release similar albums that are part of the Music of Life catalog.

In 1988 Record Mirror identified Music of Life as one of the few hip hop labels to "believe in home grown talent". In 1989, Studio Week magazine called Music of Life "the foremost Rap label in this country at the moment."
