I own 6th Floor Recordz
You guys have released some great new tracks, tell us more about how it came about.
We normally get together in the studio & start listening to beats that we have produced & see if the artist gets a feel for it. 9 times out of 10 the artist gets the pen & pad out straight away & starts writing ideas down. Then the track just starts to develop from there.

The response we get for all our E.P’s is really good. We love what we do & to hear people loving our music is an amazing feeling.
