2016 closes with a selection of 19 Exploited tracks that went down like a storm. The Exploited Crew have travelled the world, headlining festivals and played the worlds coolest parties. Labelhead Shir Khan released the much celebrated album compilation ’Dancing&Romancing’. Furthermore, the debut album ’Made In Vienna’ by Joyce Muniz was released.
The Electronic Sound: “Made In Vienna is an album of perfect poise, its electronic foundations at times induce the kind of lucid hypnosis you’d associate with Factory Floor. Muniz always brings a touch of glamour to her tight and precise grooves, with user-friendly vocals from a raft of contributors. Nice sleeve design tops off an essential album.”

THUMP: ‘Back in 2007, the born and bred Berliner Shir Khan began Exploited, a hybrid record label boasting an impressive roster of artists, and a heavy, deep house sound. Eight years later, Exploited is a staple in the music libraries of underground house fans worldwide. It’s an exciting time for the creatives behind the brand, as their name has expanded to include Exploited Ghetto, a sub-label that promises the same bouncy club tunes the project was initially founded on.
DEEPHOUSE AMSTERDAM: ‘The German house label Exploited, which is known for great releases and great parties alike, has announced the release of a new sublabel, according to Mixmag. Exploited, the magnificent label from Berlin, can surely be called one of the leading labels of contemporary house music. With a string of excellent releases during the past few years, the label is now branching out into Exploited Ghetto. The new sublabel will focus on bringing new acts into the scene. Much of what the label does will be focused on one-off releases, from people yet not in the Exploited roster.’
FAZE MAG: ‘Exploited avancierte über die Jahre zu einer der ersten Adressen im Bereich zeitgenössischer House Musik und diente Künstlern wie Adana Twins, Claptone oder Doctor Dru als Sprungbrett zu einer steilen, internationalen Karriere. Aber auch Shir Khan selbst profitierte vom Hype um sein Label und wurde so im Zuge dessen zu einem global gefragten DJ. Wenn es um deutsche Houselabels geht, ist Exploited schon lange kein Geheimtip mehr. Mittlerweile hat sich das Berliner Imprint zu einer stetigen Erscheinung in Charts und Plattenkoffern avanciert. Nun steht mit Exploited Ghetto ein Sublabel an.
