H.E.N.C.H, the birthchild of Jakes aka Papa 'Ench, has risen to rapid fame as one of the World's most distinguished dubstep imprint.

Arising from the motto 'Hard Earned Never Caught Hustling', Hench spent 2007 gaining a formidable reputation in Bristol for its groundbreaking club nights. From this beginning the music followed, with Jakes releasing his 3kout / 2 Steps Back as the first release.

More came from Jakes, before Komonazmuk, Chasing Shadows, Eddie K and Lost continued to forge the sound that Hench has now become known throughout the UK dance scene for. Having Annie Mac to Mary Anne Hobbs and Gaslamp Killer to Skream dropping their releases, Hench consistently stuns its peer with each new release.

Releasing its first compilation, the Hench Mixtape Vol. 1, the imprint was able to provide a platform for further new artists to release on the label. Tek-One and Mensah both contributed with stunning tracks that caused waves within the scene.

With the D Style Group and Jakes at the helm, the future is bright for Hench. Young, enthusiastic and forward-thinking artists providing refreshing soundscapes for the bass-generation.
