Innovative DJ/producer Doorly can now add label head to his resumé. In December he will launch Reptile Dysfunction, a new imprint and event series. The endeavor will serve both as a platform for his “weirder and more leftfield productions” and emerging talent.
The Streets’ Mike Skinner contributes vocals on the debut release “Tonga Peak Times (Confuse Dem)” out on December 23. A four-track Doorly x El Provost Collaboration EP featuring a remix from Lee Foss and others to be announced will drop in February 2017.
The label will also start a quarterly vinyl-only disco edits series called Think Sideways.
Obligatory press release gush from Doorly: “I’ve been so lucky in my career to be able to release on all of my favourite labels regularlyand have felt more than at home with my extended families at Cajual, Dirtybird and Hot Creations. But every now and then I stay up all night and make a weird track that instantly becomes my favourite thing to play out but somehow don’t fit on any of the labels I work with. As I seem to be making more and more of this kind of music, I felt the time was right to set up a label and find out if other people were into it as well as me!”
