Code Of Arms Records is an independent electronic record label based in New York City, specializing 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. Records. 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. The label now sports a sizable catalog of distinctive dub-influenced production and synth-heavy club bangers.
Hailing from New York City and already a longtime Jungle and Drum and Bass enthusiast, Nebulla has over the years refined his style with a clear dedication to mash-up genres. In 2007 Nebulla teamed up with DJ Dore to create the Dirtystep Mixtape series. Volumes 1 and 2 were well received and led to an avalanche of Crunk/Dirtysouth influenced Dubstep production. Nebulla started Code Of Arms Records in the summer of 2007. Los Angeles based label La Dubstep Nostra signed Nebulla and Dore in 2008 for their Czar Black Remix Gettin’ Doe, which was released on vinyl along with tracks by Parson and 6blocc. Nebulla is currently a resident of the world famous Konkrete Jungle NYC and performs in many other New York City venues. He continues to create and perform new music, so watch out for new material from Nebulla in 2010! (www.myspace.com/djnebulla)
Soroka began making sample-based hip-hop in 2000. Later he started working with Nebulla and DJ Dore, contributing to The Dirtystep Mixtape Volume II. For Soroka, the transition from his work in architecture to producing Dubstep was a natural one. In 2007, Soroka helped formed Code Of Arms Records, the first and only dubstep label in New York City, alongside Nebulla and Dore. Since 2008, he has been a regular DJ at Konkrete Jungle NYC, as well as Darkroom, and continues to play on a regular basis in NYC and elsewhere. To Soroka, song selection, continuity and amazing drops are of the utmost importance. He has now had several releases on Code Of Arms Records, recently collaborating with the UK/Stateside grime crew First City. He was featured on “Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Culture Volume 2: Enter The Dubstep”, and also the “4Play EP” on Filthy Digital. He continues to push and refine his style of production to be heavier, deeper, and more epic. With forthcoming vinyl releases on Bassism, Playing With Fire and C.O.A., and more in the pipeline for Filthy Digital and Gamma Audio, this is sure to be a big year for Soroka.
