Independent UK record label FRESHLY SQUEEZED MUSIC evolved from the seminal and hugely successful London night, CLUB MONTEPULCIANO which was descibed by Time Out as one of the "199 things you have to do before you're a real Londoner". The club ran for over 11 years and pioneered the UK's emerging Lounge scene during the 90's. As the sound and style went mainstream, the off-shoot label CLUB MONTEPULCIANO RECORDINGS was set up. There followed a series of ground-breaking compilations (the Bongo Beach series, Showgirls & Sugardaddies) featuring the best contemporary lounge music from a collection of like-minded international artists including Thievery Corporation, Nicola Conte, Capsule, Truby Trio, Ursula 1000, Frank Popp Ensemble, Baby Mammoth, Moodorama, Mo' Horizons and Skeewiff. The label also released the debut album from Lemon, a string of sold-out 7 inch singles & EPs and the work of various other acts including Montepulciano.
In 2005 the new label FRESHLY SQUEEZED was established, dropping the second artist album from Lemon and releases from The Voodoo Trombone Quartet, The Pinker Tones and Foxgluv.
With new acts like Product.01, Stereo De Luxe, Dodo, Lodekka and more now signing up and an eclectic label compilation in the pipeline, the label is rapidly forging a unique identity.
