The Culprit crew has had a memorable first year with five releases from its LA-based artists and assorted friends, which included Jamie Jones, Matt Tolfrey, Lee Foss, Ken Gibson aka [a]pendics.shuffle, Inxec and Ryan Crosson. Culprit’s fourth release ‘Even in Hollywood’ from Matt Tolfrey and Inxec chopped the Beatport deep house chart, the label’s third release ‘The Edge’ from Lee Foss was a MixMag single of the month.
