In 2001, Justin Johnson & Chris O'Connor (3PO) launched a brand new label from the depths of the lower east side in New York City called Cable Recordings. At the time, Chris and Justin were the two most senior employees at Satellite Records and were roommates in a Brooklyn loft near Bushwick. Their mission was to connect all the sounds that they loved into their own sound. Their first offering “Stolen” was influenced by their surroundings, their peers, their DJ gigs, and their love for bangin' house music. They took the dirtiness of the subways, the grime of the sidewalks, and the magnificence of the skyscrapers and turned them into a stompin' Tribal House stormer, which embodied the sound of the dance floors of New York City at that time. The B-Side featured an amazing remix from long time friend and collaborator John Selway whose progressive Tribal Techno sound had already taken the world by storm. Indeed, it was Selway's remix that helped bring the spotlight to Cable by being licensed to mix compilations on Fabric (Slam), Ultra (Taylor), and Moonshine (Dave Aude), as well as being featured in an episode of Showtime's 'Queer As Folk'.
In 2010, we're now running operations out of San Francisco, California. We'll be unleashing some local talent remixes from the likes of Mossmoss (Nightlight Music/ Racecar Productions), Kenneth Scott (Auralism, Nightlight Music, and Blipswitch), Travis Dalton (Nightlight Music), and Rock Richards. Also coming down the pipeline will be mixes from Lee Coombs, Miami local Alan Stenback, Amsterdam's Quartz People (Quartz Lock Records), Jason Patrick & Max Jacobson (Klectik Records, Chicago) and Alisio Delgado
