The 65th Episode of our Label Lovers series comes at you from Australian label, Refuge Recordings!

Oscar de Lima, label head of Refuge Recordings has been doing the rounds for some time now.

With appearances spanning from WMC, ADE and EMC. He has shared the stage with some of the most notable artists globally at premiere nightspots like Exchange LA, Madrid’s GOYA Social Club, London’s Queen Of Hoxton, Melbourne’s Revolver and Sydney’s Club 77.

With over 20 years under his belt, you can expect an old school sound with a new school feel, pulling inspiration from classic house & disco, jackin’ sounds to afro beats. No genre is safe. You can find doing the rounds up and down the Australian east coast with his residencies, presenting label nights like House of Pablo to showcase the talented label roster.

The imprint, founded in 2014, evolving from a brand focused on quality events in Sydney. Refuge has grown into a platform to push quality house music both locally and abroad. Working closely with their community to uncover talent and present their art to the world, the culture is at the forefront of their label.

Releasing music by digitally and on vinyl, they have worked with artists like Junior Sanchez, Oliver Dollar, Alden Tyrell, Sondrio, Demuir, T.U.R.F, Jason Hodges, Joey Coco, Phil Weeks, Jerk Boy and more. Get familiar, familia.
