Code Of Arms Records is an independent electronic record label based in New York City. We specialize in Dubstep, Grime and other Bass music.
Code Of Arms first appeared in August of 2007 with its own special brand of U.S. dubstep crossed with dirty-south acappellas, dubbed The Dirtystep Mixtape Vol. I, featuring the production work of Nebulla and DJ Dore. The mixtape was released as a promotional bootleg and received unexpected acclaim. This set the stage for the first official digital releases on C.O.A, followed by a second genre-bending bootleg mixtape in the Winter of ‘08. In the Summer of 2008 the label released its first vinyl pressing with core members Nebulla and Dore again on the buttons. Since then, C.O.A. has grown to include a burgeoning roster of artists from across the U.S. and around the globe; and now sports a sizable catalog of distinctive dub-influenced production and synth-heavy club bangers.
Code Of Arms DJ’s can be heard smashing dubplates at various venues throughout New York City including the world-class sound system at Love, The Pyramid’s Konkrete Jungle, Coco 66 and Santos, to name a few.
