With each label focusing on its own niche within the independent musical landscape, the !K7 Label Group has released new music from artists as varied as Pete Rock, Roy Ayers, Mulatu Astatke, Grandmaster Flash, Kid Creole and Lee Hazlewood.  In 2013, leading electronic label AUS Recordings joined the !K7 family to help the label develop long term artist projects of the next generation of exciting electronic artists and producers and enjoyed great success with the debut album from leading UK electronic producer Huxley.  Strut Records continues to go from strength to strength and picked up the prestigious ‘Best Label’ accolade at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards in 2015.
