About

The history of Formation Records.
Celebrating 25 years of making Drum and Bass history!

The Formation Records Group is a timeless landmark in British breakbeat music with a reputation throughout the scene as one of the most respected and longest standing labels. Over the last decade, Formation have always remained true to the spirit of underground dance music and have never sold out. Based in Leicester UK, Formation was founded in 1989 by DJ SS (Leroy) and his partner Eidris. Formation really got going by 1991 and released countless classics of darkside hardcore/jungle over the next couple years. The label evolved with the times and by 1994 was one of the leading jungle labels. Home to the some of the most talented drum ‘n’ bass artists in the world. Formation kicked off with the Psycho E.P as its first release and followed on with names like Tango, Oasis, Megadrive, Jungle House Crew and so on. In those early days things were a bit primitive and most of the production was done by the artists at home or in the Formation studio, which was then a flat on the edge of the city. Due to Formation’s popularity things escalated quickly and in early 1993 The Formation Recording studio was built above the partners record and clothes shop 5HQ.
