Well Rounded’s rise began with Deadboy’s ‘U Cheated’ EP in the winter of 2009, which came as a precursor to the current two-step revival and is now hailed as a modern club classic, and continued with carefully selected tracks from south Wales bass cartel CRST, young house upstart Hackman, Skinnz, the alter ego of Bristol’s Baobinga, future bass experimentalist Graphics, and current cream of the UK crop Julio Bashmore (second photo below). The label has amassed a back catalogue that spans and splices genres like house, fidget, UK garage, juke, electronica, bassline and techno and is host to some absolute gems. Hear them for yourself in the mix below andget further acquainted with Donga and Well Rounded in the interviewthat follows. Enjoy!
