Born in Dundee, Billy Mackenzie formed the legendary band The Associates with Alan Rankine in 1979. Their biggest hits included "Party Fears Two" and "Club Country". Post Rankine’s departure from the band in ’82, Mackenzie continued working under the same name until the 1990s when he began to use his own name. His debut album ‘Outernational’ was released in 1992. Struggling with depression and the death of his mother, Mackenzie sadly took his own life on the 22nd January 1997.  

The album 'Beyond The Sun' was released by Nude Records a few months after his death in January 1997 and includes some of his most melancholic material (much of it co-written with Steve Aungle) perhaps illustrated best by the track "Winter Academy" (from 'Beyond The Sun'). Four albums in total were released posthumously, showcasing Billy's influence to constantly push boundaries and produce beautifully crafted, heartfelt music. The last of these albums ‘Transmission Impossible’ was released in 2005. In June 2009, a play was staged in Dundee about Mackenzie’s life. We are extremely proud to represent Billy's music and have him part of the Domino Publishing family.

 

NEW SIGNING - MR. MITCH SIGNS TO DOMINO PUBLISHING

07/01/16

We're really pleased to welcome Mr. Mitch (please note the "." after Mr) to our roster.

As a co-founder of fast rising record label Gobstopper Records and club-night, now also record label Boxed, he's a curator and auteur at the forefront of forward thinking instrumental grime, ambient and experimental electronic music.

He's currently signed to Planet Mu as a solo artist working on the follow up to his wonderful debut LP 'Parallel Memories'. As a producer/co-writer he has worked with grime stalwarts Skepta, P-Money and more recently with r&b/electronic star Katy B. He is fast becoming a go-to producer/writer outside of the instrumental grime sphere.

Mr. Mitch is a gentle giant, steadily, but forcefully pushing the boundaries of electronic music and pop culture in a way only he does.

NEW WRITER - UNTOLD (JACK DUNNING)

13/10/15

Jack Dunning’s production work as Untold has reinvigorated the climate of dancefloors around the globe. First releasing music on Hessle Audio, the North Londoner has gone on to releases numerous scene stealing EPs on outlets such as Hotflush, R & S, Soul Jazz and 50 Weapons, as well as his own Hemlock Recordings. He now stands proudly as a tastemaker and pioneer in his own right.

Black Light Spiral, his debut album on his own Hemlock label, was his most focused and evolved release to date. Released to critical acclaim in 2014, it delivered on Untold’s mission to keep the people up and at it with rough tough music while confounding them with brilliantly executed improbabilities. Since the album Dunning has developed a brand new live show, taking in stand out performances at Berghain, Sonar, Dekmantel, Unsound, RBMA Tokyo and more. Listen to tracks from 'Black Light Spiral' below.
