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.

Back again on the Disco House Tip. Shir Khan presents 4 new fine cuts on Black Jukebox 16.
A1 and A2 is being represented by Iban Montoro & Jazzman Wax (Robsoul), while B1 is in charge of Bas Roos (featured on Claptone’s upcoming Mix-CD) and B2 by G. Markus (Soul Clap Edits).
‘Shir Khan’s Black Jukebox is back with its 16th edition and it’s all killer no filler as we’ll explain. First up the EP starts off in wicked fashion with the thumping, swing fuelled groove of Iban Montoro & Jazzman Wax’s “I Believe” with its jazzy piano loops.. this one’s definitely made to play! On the flip we’ve got the lo-slung deep groove of Dutchman Bas Roos’ “Midnight People” that’s just perfect for a 3 AM Chicago basement shut in or Bushwick loft party alike! Finally Soul Clap Records affiliated G Markus’ “The Man From Planet Jazz” is indeed a jazzy little something, no doubt inspired by the Windy City Style.’ (Review by JUNO)
‘Shir Khan sees out the Summer with one more V/A 4-tracker for the terraces. Iban Montoro & Jazzman Wax (Robsoul) take care of the B-side while Bas Roos and G. Markus (of Soul Clap Edits) take charge of the flip. “I Believe” is filtered, piano-led feel-good house music. With a riff akin to Paul Johnson’s “Get Get Down” it’s actually the same sample used by the Happy Clappers tune of exactly the same name. “Scorpio” opts for a more beatdown flavoured groove as more funk and disco samples are tastefully layered in that idiosyncratic style. Onto the B-side and Bas Roos’ “Midnight People” is a sultry, low-slung affair again with added filter action and plenty of soulful vocal snatches. Finally, G. Markus concludes the set with “The Man From Planet Jazz”. An organic house number along the lines of Rotating Assembly or Glen Underground; rich with vibrant piano work, warm bass lively congas. Another killer set from Mr. Khan’s crew. Limited edition as always.’ (Review by PICADILLY RECORDS)
