Often described as “one of the best indie labels out there,” NYC’s global bass music pioneer High Chai Recordings has been promoting big sound and breaking new talent since 2008.
Founded by DJ/Producers FILMI, Cenzo & dimmSummer, High Chai focuses on quality music in many forms including Trap, Future, Hybrid, Midtempo, Glitch Hop, Neuro, DrumStep and everything in between. Refusing to follow a growing trend in the industry to release everything that starts to sound the same, HCR’s artists and catalog speak to an increasingly diverse and discerning global audience. 2013 saw an expansion of A&R support from David McMillan in the US & Joe Steadman in the UK.
High Chai’s vertical integration of mastering, graphics and branding remain a keystone in keeping costs as low as possible for label and artist alike.
We take pride in not only signing rising stars in various scenes but also cultivating and guiding raw talent to introduce to the world. In addition to being a beacon to future stars, HCR is known for delivering big room drops from legends like FreQ Nasty, Liquid Stranger, Nucleya & FS to name a few.
