Nukleuz: A Decade of Dance Mayhem – Year 2008

Nukleuz: A Decade of Dance Mayhem – Year 2008

2008: The final death throes of 12″ and CD. We had moved our distribution to Pinnacle, the country’s largest independent distributor but by the end of the year that had too gone bankrupt taking all the the labels that moved to it from Amato with it. This signaled the final death knells for much 12″ and CD distribution of dance music in the UK. Also high street shops that had been supportive of dance in the past were also falling. All this failure in the physical distribution field forced more and more labels to concentrate on their digital distribution and in 2008 digital was beginning to really thrive for many labels , Nukleuz included.

This was the year we continued with Mauro releasing the Meganite mix Cd and the “Gonna Get Ya” mashup single. We continued with both hardcore and trance with our digital output growing by the week. The new digital age allowed us to do all kinds of releases all available at the moment in House, Trance, Minimal etc that we could not have dreamed of doing before that time. We renewed our relationship with Frantic on a release front making the first digital only Frantic mix album. This was very much a year of consolidating our digital only capabilities and trying to bring all our artists into this new world that was still a revolution that was difficult to get to grips with.
