Sean Brosnan’s Top 5 Record Labels of 2021

So many waves of records arrive each week that sometimes we wish someone would turn down the tap. But there are some labels that can consistently deliver the goods and if you haven’t already go and check out these labels who are doing great things:

Toy Tonics 

Coming out of Munich and headed by Kapote, Toy Tonics have been bringing the party jams for years. But in 2021 they delivered EP after EP of killer house and disco. 

Ninja Tune 

Consistently delivering great electronic music, often with a credible pop slant. The London based label has come into it’s own in the past few years delivering major crossover acts.  


The masters returned in 2021. One of the most legendary house labels ever got a reboot with new Masters of Work material and it wasn’t disappointing. Heavy house beats picking up where Kenny and Louie left off. 

Permanent Vacation 

Another Munich musical institution, Permanent Vacation have been providing soul leaning electronic music for over a decade and always with impeccable quality control. 2021 has shown them in fine form again. 


Our sister label so some insider trades going on, but Needwant has delivered some stand out new talent in 2021 in the form of acts like Meg Ward, Alinka and Paris Green.
