Never Say Die Records Ends Their Run in the Scene

Never Say Die Records

After over a decade of delivering some of the heaviest dubstep in the scene, Never Say Die has officially closed its doors.


Back in 2009, a new label was launched by SKisM with the intention of becoming a home for the heavy wubs and grimy beats that were beginning to dominate the growing bass scene – Never Say Die Records. Since then, the imprint achieved just that with a seemingly ever-growing list of artists joining their ranks which included the likes of Zomboy, Kompany, Ace Aura, Akeos, Spag Heddy, MUST DIE!, Space Laces, BadKlaat, Dr. Ozi, Dodge & Fuski, Oddprophet, LAXX, BAR9, and more.

Last year, Never Say Die announced that their sister label, Never Say Die: Black Label, would be ending its run which came as a shock for those who had faithfully followed that side of NSD for years. Today, the main imprint delivered the gut-punching news that it would be shutting down after a 13-year run in the scene with the final release arriving from MUST DIE!, “ANGELWARE.”

“We’re immensely proud of everything the label has done to impact the genre the way it has, but the simple truth is that we’ve achieved everything we set out to do (and more) in this industry, and it’s time for the team to move onto other things,” reads the statement that was posted to their social media earlier today. “Our legacy lives on, and the catalogue will be available to stream forever.”

Never Say Die closed out their statement by giving thanks to their global fanbase that has been along with them throughout their journey. Check out their full discography on their website or over on Beatport, and stay tuned for future projects from the artists who have graced the imprint over the years.
