    yeah that's the thing - not too sure really...

    I guess with artists like Dom & Roland, Omni Trio, EZ Rollers, etc all doing stuff on other labels or quitting dnb it isn't/wasn't quite the same label it once was.

    If that label put out repulsive music for the next 20 years, I'd still have a massive amount of respect for them.

    If shadow isn't going any more... it's one of the rare occasions where it isn't sad. Those dudes put out music that has been life changing for so many people.

    Their first release came out when i was 5 years old and I love that record label as much as any old skool moaner ;)

    Fuck me. :eek:

    Well I gottah say I respect the 'going out on top' attitude...

    ...but it says a LOT when a playa like Rob Playford looks at D&B's future and thinks perhaps it might be becoming 'diluted'. :blue:

    Big respect to THE strongest label in hardcore/jungle/D&B. :fire: :fire: :fire:

    sensible thing to do.

    I'd imagine people would say somethig about a big void being left now, but most of the release catalog is so strong, so timeless in its nature, that this decision simply leaves a monument upon the musical landscape, an impressive and influential legacy.

    Big up to moving shadow and everyone involved in the label and its work. You have left quite an astounding impression in electronic music.

    yeah me too now I think about it actually... I remember I got a Moving Shadow mixtape with DJ magazine back in 97 sometime. I was already really into Good Looking stuff but that tape got me into the rest of the dnb scene.

    I grew up with Moving Shadows music, big loss to the industry if true.

    Respect to Rob and all the other shadow heads.

    Like many, my first d'n'b vinyl was a Moving Shadow one. Hell, even my first d'n'b CD was a Moving Shadow cd!

    They had the best tunes, the best logo (imo) and was the lair of many great names that today have their own labels, etc.

    And AFAIK they were the first label to try and make their music reach their non-DJ audience with those very cheap compilation CDs, released every 6 months. They were nicely mixed and there are VERY FEW labels that can boast a complete mix CD every six months filled with great material! :slayer:

    If Rob isn't feeling things any more then its fair enough I suppose, better than to carry on half arsed, still sad though, Moving Shadow probably have got a bigger slice of collectors shelves than the majority of other labels.
