Jamie Russell aka Cedric Maison has been a pillar of the Bristol music scene for the last few years. Celebrating its 10th year, his Hypercolour label is one of the most respected house and techno labels in the UK, always releasing fresh and exciting music, with keeping quality at the crux of it all with releases from the likes of Maya Jane Coles, Tom Demac, Dense & Pika, Eats Everything, Huxley, Roman Flugel and George Fitzgerald to name just a few.
