Azuli Back Catalogue

Azuli, founded by DJ David Piccioni in London in 1991, became a cornerstone of the UK house music scene and remains the country's longest-running house label. Initially selling records from a van, Piccioni leveraged his American experience to release both UK acid house and American-sounding tracks. Azuli's debut, Chocolate Fudge’s ‘In a Fantasy’, was a hit. In 2009, Phoenix Music International acquired Azuli's back catalogue, which includes notable tracks like ‘If You Fall’ by Ad Finem and ‘Bring Me Love’ by Andrea Mendez. The full catalogue is available through our dance division, GRAND Music.

Gut records

When radio plugger Guy Holmes couldn't find interest from record companies for "I’m Too Sexy" by Right Said Fred, he released it himself, resulting in a worldwide hit. This success led to the founding of Gut Records, which signed acts like Space and Aswad, growing into a top UK independent label with artists like Tom Jones and Crazy Frog. Its dance imprint, Gusto, achieved international success with hits such as "Out of Touch" by Uniting Nations and "Love Don’t Let Me Go" by David Guetta vs The Egg. In 2008, Phoenix Music International acquired Gut Records' back catalogue.
