Welcome to Up:Start Music...
Born out of the frustration of the state of the current break-beat scene & the music industry with no one willing to take a risk on new artists & the backlash of the credit crunch, Up:Start Music’s aim is to release break-beat led, dance floor friendly music that suits a range of styles & tastes. This is along with some electro & jackin' beats thrown in as well, mainly in the forms of remixes.  

We kicked things off in feb 2009 with the release of the critically acclaimed ‘Bust This EP’ by D*Funk feat MC Manic. This first release picked up very good reviews & opened the doors of what Upstart is to be about. 

After a year of putting out quality music which regularly featured in many download store’s top ten sales charts, Upstart Music was nominated for the ‘Best New Label 2009’ award at the International Break beat Awards (Breakspoll). We were massively happy to be nominated as it’s an awards that is voted for by the public, so a huge thank you to everyone who supported us & cast a vote. We are hoping that this will open our project up to a new brand of ears & help the label gain momentum as we head into 2010...  

To begin with Up:Start Music will be a download only label, distributed intensively across a broad number of music download web sites across the planet. But plans are to move the label on as quickly as possible & explore different mediums of release, be it traditional vinyl or other, newer mediums.

Our 5 newest releases are...
