Launched in January 2006 by the highly respected A&R/DJ Kevin Griffiths, Tsuba is regarded as one of the worlds key players in underground house music and has an enviable and consistently growing fanbase amongst djs, music fans and journalists alike.
Tsuba is about forward thinking, credible club music with depth and longevity, and has an artist roster made up of some of the worlds most desirable producers such as Sascha Dive, Okain, Federico Molinari, Moodymanc, Hector, Dyed Soundorom and of course, Kevin Griffiths himself.
The label is a common sight in the genre top 10’s of leading dance music download store, Beatport, and also maintains a totemic presence in the increasingly competitive vinyl market which confirms that the Tsuba imprint strikes an all-too-rare balance between underground champion and commercial success.
A brief introduction to Tsuba by founder & owner, Kevin Griffiths:
I launched Tsuba Records in January 2006 following 2 years running and doing A&R for Fine records. The sound and ethos of Tsuba can best be described as Acid House covering techno, deep house and electro. I cover these styles when DJing and Tsuba is a reflection of the diversity of music that floats my boat. Essentially deep groovy & spacey electronic club music. Artists on Tsuba include:
Eric Borgo & Oxia
Eric Borgo & The Hacker
Audiofly & Scarlett Etienne
