Label in residence: The Numero Group

As if this month wasn't sweet enough already, Drift have decided to deem it officially  "Numero Group Takeover Month"  - with some re-stocks of their vast and import catalog, plus some swish added extras over the next few weeks. For those of you who don't know them yet (where the F have you been?) The Numero Group are crate diggers extraordinaire, musical archeologists bringing fresh life to lost and forgotten music from around the world.

So, the first of those perky bonus treasures is this exclusive 'Sweet Soul Mix' direct from the Numero office stereo. Kick back and crank up that sweet sweet soul.



Further good news for us limey bastards, Numero Group are invading our UK shores this month with some special DJ appearances and pop up shops. They explained;


"A decade into our journey to document lost and forgotten music from around the world, we’re still figuring out how to convince the country that re-contextualized soul music that there’s a decent archival record company out of America. Just like the best UK punk singles only showed up in the import bins, Numero has had a long love affair with the intelligentsia of British Isles record shops. And while the buyers at Piccadilly, Rough Trade, Monorail, Probe, Honest Jons, and the Drift know us by catalog number, the northern soldiers have been too busy buying dodgy comps of mysterious European origin to notice that we’ve become the world’s finest catalog label. In September, all that changes. For ten days, Chicago’s Numero Group will send shockwave after shockwave down the spines of UK dancers and record buyers."
