as various releases on the sister label Juice Recordings.
By 1995 Majistrate was progressing with producing and dj'ing at some of the biggest events
as well as featuring weekly on Kool FM. After meeting A-sides who liked what Majistrate was doing,
he decided to release material on his East Side record label. Following this there were

Majistrate solo releases. Majistrate has also remixed for various artists, as well as having other
releases on classic labels such as Lucky Spin and Brain records. He has also appeared on Kiss FM
& Rude FM, as well as playing throughout Europe.
In 2002 Majistrate made a come back to production after a brief break, and hooked up with Nicol,
old time friend and Direct Recordings owner. ‘Show U’ was the second release on Direct Recordings,
and lead to Majistrate and Nicol linking up in the studio.
