CUFF is a record label that this year has taken up arms and stormed the electronic music scene with hugely successful results. Pioneering the new g-house sound, CUFF is headed up by spearheads of the style Amine Edge & DANCE, who have since the labels first releases, took up the job of releasing the most cutting edge tracks from artists like Shiba San, Tough Love and FlexB to name just a few. CUFF is currently finishing up their first season in Ibiza where they have had a weekly residency at Sankeys, however on September the 26th the CUFF crew will be flying over to the steel city where they will host a label showcase for Ahora at Sheffield’s O2 Academy.
Label head honchos Amine Edge & Dance will be headlining the affair, bringing low-slung basslines and cheeky vocals to the dancefloor that will see punters getting low. The duo have been regulars at their Sankeys Ibiza Thursday night residency and aside from their own imprint have had releases on labels like Exploited, Neim and 2DIY4.
Clouded Judgement are the second guests who are joining Ahora’s CUFF line up, and in a similar fashion are favourites on the hosting imprint and have had huge support for their tracks, most notable ‘Waiting To Love You’ and the remix of Lee M Kelsall’s ‘Gimme’.
Last but not least is Sion, a CUFF label mate who has played a number of sets for the label at Sankeys and other showcases this year. As favourites of Amine Edge & DANCE, Sion has had a reel of supported releases on imprints like MTA and Sleazy Deep, the first of which will see the release of Sion’s newest single ‘Make You Do’. These innovative producers will be bringing their individual takes on this new style to The O2 Academy in Sheffield on the 26th of September, so make sure you get down, to get down.
