Following a sold-out 10th anniversary party at London’s Corsica Studios, award-winning record label Local Action will release Do What You Want Forever, a 15 track compilation collecting its greatest hits from the last decade.
Founded by Tom Lea, Local Action started off as a 12”-focused dance label, releasing acclaimed singles and EPs from T. Williams, Throwing Snow, DJ Q and more. The label’s third release, T. Williams’ ‘Heartbeat’ (and its Mosca remix) was an instant classic and still retains its anthem status in the UK underground a decade on.
As the label developed into a more professional operation, it expanded its remit to larger projects – including groundbreaking albums such as Dawn Richard’s all-conquering Redemption, and ubiquitous dance records like Finn’s ‘Sometimes The Going Gets a Little Tough’ and DJ Q’s ‘Brandy & Coke’. In 2017, Local Action launched 2 B REAL: a Manchester-based sibling label headed up by Finn, which has housed records by the likes of Anz, Clemency, Martyn Bootyspoon, Iceboy Violet and LOFT (aka aya).
In 2022, Local Action stands as one of the most respected imprints in underground dance music. Recent projects like India Jordan’s ‘For You’, E.M.M.A.’s Indigo Dream, DJ Q’s ‘All That I Could’ and UNIIQU3’s Heartbeats were celebrated across the board in 2020 and 2021’s best-of-year charts, while the label’s roster picked up three awards at DJ Mag’s 2020 Best of British awards, for Best Breakthrough Producer (India Jordan), Best Breakthrough DJ (Anz) and Best Breakthrough Label (2 B REAL).
Following the release of Do What You Want Forever, Local Action will embark on a series of club showcases and festival stages across the UK and Europe, the first four of which are detailed below.
Local Action will release Do What You Want Forever on May 10 on digital download and limited CD with pull-out photo inlay.
