Lifted Music is a record label based in Harpenden, England that focuses on releasing Drum & Bass music amongst other dance genres. The label is primarily known for releasing forward thinking Avant GardeDrum & Bass from its roster of producers. The label does not adhere to a strict release schedule like most independent record labels.
Lifted Music was started by Drum & BassDJ Chris Renegade in 2006. The Label released The Prologue EP in early 2007, their first release; a compilation of tracks by Spor, Apex, Ewun & Evol Intent, the EP was hailed by fans. Manager Chris Renegade also promotes the label with podcasts featuring many of the artists on his label, and these helped to spread Lifted Music further among Drum & Bass fans.
After subsequent releases and live shows, Lifted Music gained approval by artists & DJs Andy C, Friction, Noisia, Pendulum, TeeBee & Calyx. In 2008, Lifted Music carried out further promoting by touring across Russia, North America, and Europe. 2008 also marked the start of the sister label Breed 12 Inches, which released a 12" by artists Inside Info and Katharsys. Breed 12 Inches was created to nurture lesser known artists.
