Blu Saphir Recordings was created in 2005 on the grounds of improving and expanding the variety of sounds that drum and bass has to offer. Jay Rome got first in contact with Twintone, Muffler, Kaleb, and Contour back in 2004.
He loved their music and decided to work with them on a new label to release proper music. “Twintone and I had completed a tune entitled I Try, which had such good feedback that Muffler decided to do a remix.
We had these tunes ready for the label, so we started Blu Saphir Recordings to release it.” Since the last 15 years Blu Saphir released music by famous producers like Bungle, Submorphics, Technicolour, Bassface Sascha, Brain, Schematic and many more.
For the future the label added new young talents to the roaster. Watch out for new releases in 2020 by austrian fellas Sequent & Skruff, Emphasis, Dorian, Fox:Rox and Jay Rome as well as new releases by Bungle, Bassface Sascha, Muffler and Brain.
As evolution would have it, the force behind the Blu Saphir camp wasn't done – 2013 dawned a new era of techy, deep, dark and rolling drum 'n bass in the amalgamation of Blu Saphir Limited.
Introducing a pair of thunderous rollers by Japan's Hayato, the imprint has gone on to release bangers by DJ Chap , Roy Green & Protone, Monologue, Inkognitiv, Ivoree, Sentic Cycle and main ecxlusive producer Sequences.
As Blu Saphir matured, Digital Blus was formed three years later in 2008 with the mission in mind to release the highest quality liquid drum 'n bass in digital format only.
Since then 122 tunes have been released by artists like Paul SG, Flowrian, Loz Contreras, Tweakz, Sinistarr, Rowpieces, Underdog, DJ Roots, TheEgo and many more and support on BBC 1Xtra by Rene LaVice, Fabio, Chrissy Chris and also by Camo and Krooked on FM4.
After numerous successful releases on both labels, label owners, Jay Rome of Blu Saphir and Syncopix of (you guessed it!) Syncopix Recordings have combined forced to create a new collaboration, Sync:Saphir.
“The goal behind Sync:Saphir is to push out some fresh minimal, deep and liquid drum and bass music by both talent new artists and well known producers,” Jay Rome of Blu Saphir goes on - “At first , I had the idea to release an EP with Syncopix, but then we decided to make a bigger wave with an LP and two sampler vinyls.
The SYNC:SAPHIR LP will be a double CD album. On the other CD we will present 13 tracks by both well known and fresh newcomer producers.”
