The Vinyl Word: Nomis’ White Labels


We’re going through crates and boxes like it was Cash In The Attic again now, this time it’s producer/DJ Nomis picking out the ten white labels he rates highest.

And, being the generous type, A.T’s also given out a track that you can download below. Continue reading
