This is the first issue of SubMarine, the newsletter for the Marine Parade community.
Marine Parade is the label behind Freeland, ils, Evil Nine, Adam Freeland DJ, and a bunch of other great artists.
Friends and fans have been asking for a long time to hear more about what we're up to - so here it is. If you don't wanna know, sorry, and please unsubscribe here.
Marine Parade has always been about finding great music and getting it to the people that love it around the world. We're a small independent record label based out of Brighton, England, and we like to think we stand for excellence in everything we release or recommend. The label was founded by DJ Adam Freeland.
So far we've released 25 stellar 12" singles, a stunning artist album Soul Trader by ils, 2 unforgettable Adam Freeland DJ compilations (Tectonics and On Tour) as well as the soon-to-be-cult artist album Now and Them by the live band Freeland. Over the next few months we've got more music than ever - with more singles from the Freeland album, and new albums from Evil 9 (spring release) and ils (autumn release).
Unless you've been in a coma or on a long walk in the himalayas you'll know about the success of the first Freeland single We Want Your Soul that came out in September 03. Well, the hugely anticipated follow up single is finally out on the market! 'Supernatural Thing' was released this Monday in all good record shops. Buy it please, it's really good!
A big thank you to all of you that came to see Freeland live at Cargo, London in Jan - you guys rocked! And those that caught us in '03 on our UK Tour.
Plus Freeland are doing the 'Peace-Not-War' (peace-not-war.org) gig on the 14th February at the Hackney Ocean, London.
After far too long Marine Parade is building and releasing a new website designed to enable people everywhere access to our music, each other and our points of view. We'll let you know when it's ready, and we hope you like it.
In fact, mail us if there's anything you wanna know about what we're up to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In advance of us going live with our online shop, where you will be able to buy records, cds and ultimately MP3 downloads direct from us online, you can buy the music now at:
The rest you'll just have to steal til we make it commercially available ;-)

Next month, Juice Aleem's top 10 Kung Fu movies... and if we can squeeze it out of them, Evil Nine's top 10 Brighton curry houses.

Right then, hold tight for our website, meanwhile keep spreading the love - god knows we've been doing our best!
Peace not War!
