We've played various releases from this label on the FuseBox Radio Broadcast and like the vibe and musicality that is brought out by the musicians displayed on this label as well as the interesting collaborations brought forth on them.

One of those 12" releases was with Wu-Tang Clan member Raekwon with Truth and Soul Records group El Michels Affair doing a live version of "The PJs" and some other joints - check out a video of the live version of "Criminology" below:
