Tuff Love Dubs
Shuttered in 2013 to bookend the original 'version' of the imprint, and Re-birthed in 2020 as a contemporary Jungle Label, ALL first edition Tuff entries from there forward are released on 10" Vinyl Dubplate ONLY in quantities of only 10 or 20 plates per release. --- Originally formed during the burgeoning days of US dubstep frenzy in 2008, TUFF LOVE DUBS set the tone for much of what US based dubstep artists would produce in the years to come. Quickly establishing itself as a launching pad for some of the biggest names in dubstep, the label is proud to represent world class talent including: GETTER, SLUGGO, BARE, THE JUGGERNAUT, STATIC FUNCTION, WE BANG, ITCHY ROBOT, BUKEZ FINEZT, BLOKHEAD, CLRH2O, A1 VOODOO, CANO, HULK, GEOFF BUKK, DAVR, WONKAP, G31, THE END IS PART OF THE DANCE, HALO NOVA / VARIEN, PRODUCE AND DESTROY, BONE LOC, ULTRABLACK, LEON, RUMBLE JUNKIE, CRIMES!, DECREE, KING, TOTAL RECALL, REIKA...... and many others!
Essential Tuff Love Dubs Releases
TUFF LOVE DUBS Dubplate #3 is HERE - Featuring the crowd choice favorite ‘THE SECRET’!!!!
3rd time around we bring you: THE SECRET & STUMBLING IN THE DARK in the extremely limited (and maximum ever) quantity of TWENTY!
Dubplate #3 / TUFF037, is a very special community effort. Over the course of a month’s time everyone worked together finally culminating in a series of Polls to choose one of the two songs included. From a pool of over 20 cuts THE SECRET was chosen by the crew, and we have paired ‘Stumbling in the Dark’ as it’s counterpart 🙂
ALL releases on this newly minted imprint will ONLY be available on 10″ Vinyl Dubplate in quantities of as few as 10 to as many as 20 per initial release. If you don’t get the Dub, that’s that.. Tuff Love.
TUFF LOVE DUBS Dubplate #5 is HERE!!!
5th time around we bring you: SOMEWHERE ELSE & WAKE UP in the increased quantity of 14 total!
Dubplate #5 / TUFF039 combines two crowd favorites from the past year’s shows from our forthcoming Dubplate archive into a single release. Generally speaking I tend to put an Amen cut b2b with a rolling number - but time around we went full on breaks with two top tier Amen cuts on one plate!
Original releases on TUFF from 2020 on are available ONLY on 10″ Vinyl Dubplate in extremely low numbers of 10 to a max of 20 copies per release. If you don’t get the dub when it’s cut, that’s that.. Tuff Love.
TUFF LOVE DUBS Dubplate #2 is HERE!!!
Continuing the relaunch of TUFF we present CIRCULAR & DIGITAL SELF in the extremely limited quantity of TEN WHITE Vinyl Dubplates!
As many have noticed through the re-launch, there are NO ARTIST NAMES on these releases. This is by design. We’re doing our part to bring back some of the mystery that’s been lost in music of late. If you want to know who made it, start asking around, pay attention to what we might say in the Twitch live shows, hunt for clues in blogs or maybe on a sticker somewhere… In the end all will be known. And while you hunt, the beats on these plates will keep you bubblin!
