One record label’s blazing a new trail through trance land – and it’s no wonder if you know who’s behind its wheels. In February 2014, UK’s producer and DJ Jordan Suckley kicked off Damaged Records – a brand new outlet for Psy, Tech, Vocal and Uplifting trance. A realm for everyone into fresh and genre-defining sounds, by new and established names in today’s scene.
In its first year of existence, Damaged hasn’t only become the go-to-place for those who seek originality, but also made it into the Top 15 of best-selling Trance labels on Beatport. Looking back on no less than twelve Top 10 hits and various number 1’s, you’ll find it no surprise that Damaged releases have gained the support of industry giants such as Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Markus Schulz, Paul van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, Gareth Emery, Aly & Fila, John O’Callaghan, Simon Patterson and many more.
Next to releases by label-boss Jordan Suckley, including his number one hit remix of Tiësto’s ‘Suburban Train’, Damaged has brought the sounds of Heatbeat, Mark Sherry, Photographer, Joint Operations Centre, Sam Jones, Allen & Envy, Will Atkinson, Thomas Datt and more. With an ever-growing and loyal following, Damaged decided to go all-in and start its own event tour. Damaged Events have sold out in cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Belfast, Toronto and Milan. If that doesn’t convince you of its evident impact on the scene, we don’t know what will.
