Nukleuz has been one of the world’s foremost Dance music labels since 1996.

The label has had many milestones over its lifetime but include winning the prestigious Music Week best dance label in 2001, being the best selling 12″ label in the world for 3 years running from 2001-2003, having the first vinyl only top 40 in the UK charts for decades (with BK’s Revolution in 2001). Main artists include Mauro Picotto, Mario Piu, Joy Kitikonti, Stu Allan, Pierre Pienaar (P.H.A.T.T.), BK, Lisa Pin-Up, Fergie, Nick Sentience, Andy Farley, Andy Whitby, Phil Reynolds, Organ Donors, Cally & Juice and many more www.nukleuz.com
