30 Years of V w/ Jumpin Jack Frost and Bryan Gee
- Don G
Founded in 1993 through the friendship of Bryan Gee and Jumpin Jack Frost, V is one of longest-running labels and has launched the recording careers of artists like Roni Size and DJ Marky. Gee was particularly excited by the Bristol sound and, working as A&R at a record label at the time, heard some of Roni Size and Krust's early material. Gee and Frost made the trip to Bristol and decided to set up the label shortly after in order to release some of their music. The label has released classics of the genre such as "Set Speed" by Krust, "Fresh" by Roni Size, and "Brand New Funk" by Adam F.
The labels biggest commercial success was LK by DJ Marky featuring Stamina MC - which reached #17 in the UK Singles Chart in July 2002. It has also spawned a number of sub-labels including Philly Blunt, Chronic, and Liquid V. Gee continues to operate the label.
