A NEW YEAR / A NEW BEGINNING! January 3rd 2015

Hello good people! We'd like to wish you all a happy new year and add a few lines on the first few projects we have going!

Firstly we're beyond anxious to get our first SCREAMING BOOKS project underway, which will happen during 2015. We will reveal more shortly.
Secondly we're hoping to release another license in the first half of 2015 as well as manifest TIGHTEN UP by releasing a full length album.

Take care, keep checking back and visit our SCREAMING STORE for a blow out sale very soon!


We're beyond excited to announce that we will release the debut 12" EP from Danish rapper NIKI BERNARD on a license through SGMD on October 16th!

The 29 year old rapper (writing in English!) has taken his time to complete this 5 track masterpiece and unleashed the beast today! "DOXY" is the name and the lyrical content deals with lust, dreams, jealousi, weakness, frustration, love, hate, the forbidden, the secret and the exciting!
From today and for the next 12 days you can download for free here - and the vinyl will be out Oct. 16th - meaning you can pre-order here!

A LONG DUE UPDATE! July 12th 2014

We're getting pretty crap at updating this site for some reason - although tons of stuff is happening! So just to run through the whole thing here:

The BABYLOVE & THE VAN DANGOS "Any Port in a Storm" 7" was released in May and is featured in our shop! We have imported some superp casual street wear - polos from Hawkins & Joseph that you can also buy in our shop. Screaming Books will be launched very shortly - stay tuned for the first release! The 1-DAY HARDCORE SHOWDOWN is just around the corner - more on that by the end of this month! Finally - find all our release in PladeBiksen 43 in Copenhagen!

BABYLOVE & THE VAN DANGOS! March 30th 2014

We're very excited to announce our next release - the 3rd in the line of TIGHTEN UP 7 " series releases! This one from Denmark's premiere ska & rocksteady outfit BABYLOVE & THE VAN DANGOS!

They're here with their spanking new single - in 2 different versions; a soul and a ska version!
"Any Port In A Storm" is portraying thoughts going through the head of a father - a realization of doing anything out of love for a newborn baby girl. Go anywhere, sacrifice anything, kill anyone...
Stay tuned for pre-order details and tour dates!

L.O.C. - SAKRILEGIUM! January 28th 2014

As we announced earlier this month we are fortunate to be involved with yet another L.O.C. album - this time the 9th studio album entitled "Sakrilegium"!

As was the case with the 2 previous outputs, "Prestige Paranoia Persona" vol. I & 2, we have a license for a one-off limited vinyl batch of 475 copies. "Sakrilegium" comes as a 2xLP on 180 gr. black a wax in a gatefold sleeve with lyric inlays.

2013 -> 2014! December 30th 2013

2013 is closing in on us and by that we're entering our 5th year as a vinyl-only label when 2014 comes knocking! With 15 releases, a 16th due out in January and a label imprint with a life of its own - we can only say it's been a marvellous ride so far!

In just over a week's time we can start revealing the first of our 2014 activities and from then on end we'll post news here as we can. Concering TIGHTEN UP we will issue our 3rd single format in April - more news on artist and title in February! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Here is the 2nd TIGHTEN UP release, showcasing sounds from one of the most exciting new ska/reggae bands in Denmark; LEO & THE LINEUP!

The 9-piece (don't mind the picture!) toes the line between ska and reggae, with a heavy dose of soul. The 7" will feature "Run-Around", a certified live classic and foot-stomper as the A-side and "Gotta Go", an up-tempo gem that tells a little story about the ups and downs of romance. Both are bonafide party starters!

It's with so much excitement that we can announce our very first TIGHTEN UP release - coming out August 16th. It's from none other than the legendary RANKING ROGER (The Beat & General Republic).

Screaming Records are realizing a year-long dream by launching a label imprint specializing in Jamaican music. With focus on that of original ska/rocksteady and reggae, as well as modernized versions of the genres, TIGHTEN UP sets out to play a role of both historic and contemporary outlet.
In perfect allignment with Screaming Records each TIGHTEN UP release will come in limited and hand numbered vinyl editions. Our primary mission is to keep a steady flow of 7" releases, in a regular series format, but our vision is to branch out and include the full length format.


We're extremely happy to finally announce that we will be releasing the sophomore album "Cape Zero" by Danish hardcore band SCARRED BY BEAUTY. Redfield will handle all digital as well as CD.

"Cape Zero" was recoreded over 12 days and will be released on August 30th in all of Europe. Stay tuned for pre-order.
