Airdrop (belatedly) celebrates its fifth anniversary with a bang!
Cinq – meaning ‘five’ in the native tongue of its French founders – features artists from every chapter of the Airdrop story to date alongside some new additions and special guests.
Airdrop’s first record was released in March 2008. The Giraffe EP (AD001) launched Soul Clap into the uppermost strata of house music as well as initiating a longstanding relationship between the label and the producers of Argentina through the input of Franco Cinelli.
Twenty-five records later, following countless label showcases around the world and the establishment of various sub-labels – Aux-Rec for all things re-issued and bootlegged, Greener curated by Andres Zacco and Groovear dedicated to the work of Leonel Castillo – it’s high time to take stock of the journey so far and plan for the future to come.
Cinq sits comfortably between these two outlooks. The exclusive and previously unreleased music cut on the two vinyls map out Airdrop’s future while Paulo’s mixed selection on the included CD offers a comprehensive recap of the label group’s catalogue highlights.
Two vinyls, a mixed CD, a special sticker packed in a beautiful hand-stamped sleeve, equals Cinq.

Nail has been one of our favorite producers for quite some time now and his relentless beats always part of our selections. One half of UK electronic act Bent, Neil ‘Nail’ Tolliday has released a series of solo records between 1994 and 2000 on Classic and DiY, the imprint developed by the Do It Yourself free party collective formed in 1989 in Nottingham.Nowadays, Nail releases new music under various aliases on his own GFI Music website, on which the ‘BPMs Vol.1’ was released in 2011. Two titles out of the six originals were especially extended for the occasion. ‘Bulldogz’ and ‘Fucked Off’ come surrounded by four shorter titles all developing a very special realm…
