About

History so far.

 

Originally founded as a concept in 2006, by a group of disenfranchised teenagers from all sorts of backgrounds who assembled to form the notorious Children of The Damned crew - Blah has become one of the UK's most exciting and consistent independent record labels, boasting a cool line of clothing to go with the music.
It all started when an initial period of growing hype built up by a very young Antiheroes (Lee Scott & Salar) led to the meeting between them and a certain person now known as Milkavelli during a headline Antiheroes show in London in 2004. The rest of the 'London bastards' soon became acquainted with the rest of the 'Northern bastards', instantly became friends and joined forces thanks to a shared passion; Rap music and culture.
Young people of very different socio-economic and racial backgrounds united in a way that few things like music are able to achieve. The result was the merging of the creative talents which formed Children of The Damned.
Releasing music under our own independent label was something we knew we wanted to do early on, and the self-made, independent label known as Blah became a reality thanks to the collective efforts of everyone involved, notably Lee Scott who came up with the name and set the tone, acting like the glue that binds high quality materials together. An honourable mention must be made to Molotov (High Focus Records) who initially helped set up the label and had a significant role in making the early COTD albums a reality.
 
Reklews became involved in Blah around 2009/10, a year or so after COTD - 'Brick Pelican' was released. He took on responsibilities behind the scenes and helped run the business for a good number of years. Now he is the go-to sound engineer for Blah and is largely responsible for the sound that our fans love.

In 2014, Blah had an intake of new artists and friends who became part of the cult family gang. Young, up and coming artists such as Black Josh, Stinkin Slumrok and Blah’s first international artist, the Canadian Danny Lover, came through with their debut Blah releases and continue to go from strength to strength.
In 2015, a reformation of the legendary COTD crew occurred. Now called Cult of The Damned, this group includes the original members as well as the new.

Also in 2015, O.G. founding member Salar took over the business management role and implemented some changes, including forming Blah into a limited company and performing the duties of a managing director which he continues today. Blah is now led by himself and Lee Scott, who continues the role he has performed since the beginning, which is that of the creative director.
Blah is a small team of currently 3-5 people who are mostly artists on the label themselves. We don't have an office full of staff or a ton of agents. Every time you cop from Blah, a cut of the money is going to the labels coffers which are strictly used for funding more music projects, music videos, merch and running costs and overheads, and the majority goes direct to the artists who collaborate to create the art we provide, helping them continue to create. We are literally ran by artists, for artists. There's no opportunistic middlemen here circling around the artists, waiting for stats to tell them it's the time to capitalise on someone else's talent.
The Cult of Blah.

The Blah Cult will keep putting out the high quality material that has given us the reputation as one of the, if not the most supremely-loved, legendary, heroic icons of the multiverse today. We are at heart progressive and unconventional people and we do like to try new things, but we learn from the greats and keep the spirit of classic Hip Hop and indeed, just classic music in general alive. We also know that to achieve our mission of world domination and mind control, we must continue to deliver premium, elite, super Blah god-level music and the most desired and rarest of finely crafted sweg garments.
 
It helps then that we are truly great people who have your best interests at heart.
In fact, we are rated at 10/10 stars for greatness.
We are this way because we allow ourselves to be, we picture it and then it is done.
We encourage you to be the best that you can be too by giving us all of your dough from now on.
It's safer with us, and you need to purge yourself of sinful behaviour you have become accustomed to such as money hoarding.
Yes, you are filthy and need cleansing.
It cannot be denied any longer.
Fear not however, for you have come to the right place.
The Blah Cult shall save you all one by one and deliver purity of soul to the most dedicated among you by dispelling the evil currencies corrupting your sacred divine auras!

In exchange for salvation all we ask in return is for you to satisfy our need of eating good food and wearing gold chains.
We don't need to eat per se, but even deities enjoy culinary treats just as much as mortals. We do need to wear jewellery however, to harness chi and channel the spiritual guidance we save your lives every day with.
More gold = you get saved more.
At Blah we promise to stay true to ourselves, and above all we promise to never rap about chem-trails (non-ironically).
