Rockstar Games launches CircoLoco record label

Rockstar Games, best known as the company behind Grand Theft Auto, has teamed up with dance party organiser CircoLoco to launch a record label. 

CircoLoco Records aims to “break new ground in an effort to support and elevate dance music culture during one of the most fraught periods ever experienced for clubs and represents an opportunity to elevate the scene through the collective power of these two entertainment brands,” says the label. 

A partnership between Rockstar and CircoLoco, the new label will launch a series of EPs featuring tracks from the label’s forthcoming debut compilation album, Monday Dreamin’.

The EPs will include tracks from the likes of DJ Moodymann, Carl Craig, and Seth Troxler, along with a roster of up-and-coming artists. 

Rockstar Games has been involved music crossovers for a long time, from the championing of underground artists across its videogame titles, to the curated radio stations of the Grand Theft Auto series.

CircoLoco Records’ Monday Dreamin’ Blue EP is set to drop on 4 June, with the Green, Violet and Black EPs then launching on a weekly basis in the run-up to the compilation album release.

The full digital album is due to land on 9 July, with a vinyl release coming soon.
