First Word Records started in 2004 as a collaboration between Leeds promoter Aly
Gillani (DJ Gilla) and Sheffield DJ Andy H. The duo felt that the fertile music scene
in their corner of the UK wasn't getting the exposure it deserved and thus FW was born.
Originally releasing music from their friends and peers (kidkanevil, Homecut, The
Haggis Horns) the label has expanded over the years to include artists from across the
globe including Souleance (France), Yosi Horikawa (Japan), Tall Black Guy (US), Ross
McHenry (Australia) and Comfort Fit (Germany). Now based in London the label has now
notched up over 100 releases and built a worldwide following.
