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.’

Shir Khan and the illusive Exploited crew reveal the first compilation of the cultishly adored Black Jukebox series. It includes the sunniest grooves you’ve heard this year. ’Shir Khan Presents Black Jukebox Disco Jam 01’ is a soundsystem-ready disco-house jam which tickles the subwoofers beautifully and seems purpose built for eyes-wide-shut Summer terrace play in big outdoor spaces. Black Jukebox is traversing the wide spectrum of ‘dancefloor’ music. There’s much to excite: All four tracks are built for rooftop parties with the deep V crew.
From slo-mo housed up boogie-soul, to a loft-party future classic, to a feel-good, sun-blushed, druggy, late night electric jam, to main room filtered disco house and subbass-bugged R&B…it’s all there. It’s no wonder the Black Jukebox Vinyl series became buy-on-sight and quick to disappear. Launched in late 2011 by Shir Khan, Black Jukebox was mainly focussed on Vinyl Releases. 13 Releases later, this is the first compilation which sums up some of the best moments and features 3 tracks that were digitally never available before.
