What Came First is a new label dedicated to House music, which has been set up by the people behind the infamous Egg London club venue. As one of Europe’s best-known clubs, Egg has played host to everyone from Pete Tong to Chris Liebing and, if anything, it would be easier to list the artists not to grace the venues turntables. Recognised for bringing some of the world’s best DJ’s to London, the venue also has an ear for up and coming talent and regardless of the genre, is respected for its tastemaking lineups.
The labels first release, due 11th November 2016, is from German-born Frag Maddin, who after regular appearances at the Egg is already a firm favourite with the club’s regular crowd, which attend its packed dance floor on a weekly basis. Frag, who has previously released on many high profile labels is respected for his deep and eclectic sound incorporating jacking grooves, tribal percussion and elements of Techno.
