StackOne – Parallax

Introducing the man behind our first release: StackOne.

This dude is an amazingly humble, retrospective person and these traits reflect in his vibes as well. From dreamy and hazy beats to monster freestyle-trigger bangers, StackOne always maintains his trademark vibration.

Enjoy and thanks for the support!

Darkhouse Family – The Offering

Also Available On: Vinyl Version

First Word Records is very proud to present you with ‘The Offering’ – the debut album by Darkhouse Family; a Cardiff-based duo consisting of Earl Jeffers & Don Leisure.

Previously releasing music under their respective monikers, Metabeats and Jamal, they’ve produced an assortment of sounds over the years, from Hip Hop to House to D’n’B. Connecting as a duo almost a decade ago, this merger logically saw the birth of their own unique style, comprised of a bonafide fusion of genres.

Darkhouse Family entered into the public domain via labels Fat City and Earnest Endeavours, before joining the First Word family in Summer 2016, with the ‘Solid Gold’ EP. This was their first release to incorporate live instruments into their signature hybrid of sampled beat-chops and electronic sonics. ‘The Offering’ serves up further evolution in the Darkhouse Family’s sound – a progression that also embraces Jazz and Soul.
