Fierce Angel is a UK-based record label set up in 2006 by DJ Mark Doyle. The label employs a handful of DJ's, sponsors special club night events, and employs a lifestyle marketing approach in regards to its endeavors.

History of Fierce Angel[edit]

Doyle (as well as several other employees and illustrator Jason Brooks) left the house music label Hed Kandi mid-2005 to start a new label - Tokyo Project. Their first CD, Tokyo Project: The Collection, was released in late 2005. However, fees resulting from a legal dispute with Hed Kandi forced Tokyo Project to close.

Doyle then set up the Fierce Angel label and released their first CD, Tokyo Disco, in early 2006. Subsequent releases have dropped the Tokyo reference altogether.

Fierce Angel have also begun to set up residencies with some nightclubs in the United Kingdom, as well as some summer presence in Ibiza. Currently Fierce Angel hold events in over 20 clubs in the UK and 10 overseas including the United States, Amsterdam, Portugal, Colombia, Norway, Barcelona, Manila, Ibiza and many more.

Radio Show[edit]

The Fierce Angel Radio Show is broadcast every week to over 25 countries around the world and is also broadcast on many stations in the UK. The show is presented by Mark Doyle and produced by Fierce Angel DJ George Elliott

Releases[edit]

Similar to Doyle's releases when with Hed Kandi, the CD compilations are mostly divided into genres with some crossover. All releases contain 3 discs except Digital Angel 2006, which contains 2 discs of music while not being a physical CD release, and A Little Fierce, which contains 1 disc. Digital Angel 2006, Es Vive and A Little Fierce are mixed, while the other releases are unmixed.
