Independent label FatCat is launching a new electronic music focused imprint called FCR, in part acknowledging the company’s dance music roots, the parent label having grown out of a London record shop that specialised in techno and house.

Confirming the new imprint, FatCat co-founder Dave Cawley said: “When we started the label we didn’t want to be pigeonholed into one style, sound or genre; it was this freedom to move freely that we sought. We had spent so many years surrounded by dance music that we needed to explore other threads – whilst still maintaining an electronic and experimental element to much of FatCat’s output over the years”.

He goes on: “FCR is going to be our label releasing club records that we like. I listen to what we have coming up and although it’s all over the shop – from the driving house of Cottam, to the two step vocal cuts of E&D – it’s all FatCat”.

The first release on FCR will be ‘I Can’t Carry On’ by the there mentioned Cottam, complete with a remix by Detroit’s Todd Modes on the b-side. Meanwhile 12″ releases are also planned from the likes of Mall Grab, DJJ, Ali Berger, Grain, E&D, Lee Grainge and Steve Bicknell.
