King Street Sounds US

Named after the location of the Paradise Garage, this superb house/garage label, although based in New York, was founded by Japanese dance music enthusiast Hisa Ishioka. Concentrating on the more soulful side of house music, they forged a reputation for brilliant vocal tracks that followed in the traditions of club music stretching back to R&B and disco. While never really enjoyed the major crossover successes of fellow indies like Strictly Rhythm, they still managed to attract a legion of brilliant remixers and producers to the label, including Mood II Swing, François K and Masters At Work. Hisa was also heavily involved in acting as a broker for American remixers and producers working with Japanese artists.
