about

The histories of BBE Music and the Southport Weekender have intertwined since day one. The first release on the label, Stop & Listen Volume 1, was compiled by Dr Bob Jones, the venerable UK selector who was for many years an integral part of Southport's core of resident DJs who helped shape the sound of the Weekender scene.

Over the past ten years, the label has continued to release multi-genre compilations, mixed with some killer artist contributions while still finding time to introduce authoritative new collections such as 'The Kings Of…' series, always working with veterans and newcomers of the finest stripe. It's amongst this musical royalty that the history of the label and the longest running indoor dance and urban music event in the world continue to converge: an incredible number of Southport Weekender guest artists have been showcased on the label, Jill Scott, Roy Ayers, Jazzy Jeff, David Rodigan and Kenny Dope amongst them.
