Capital Recordings


Wellington-based independent label with a broad range of musical styles, formed by Brent Gleave and Jason Harding (aka DJ Clinton Smiley) in late 2001.

Though Capital’s initial focus seemed to be geared toward electronic artists, with the back to back releases of jazz combo Twinset’s ‘It’s a summer feeling‘ and the debut of Flash Harry (aka Barnaby Weir of popular reggae outfit The Black Seeds) Capital Recordings started to show some diversity, a positive step considering the label isn’t opposed to issuing vinyl releases.

They’ve since signed Wellington rock outfit Stylus77, the acclaimed Phoenix Foundation debut, and released the Shayne Carter produced Dimmer-heavy ‘For Good‘ soundtrack, along with a growing number of releases in the Earwork electronic series and further electronic releases from the likes of Datsun Stereo, Jet Jaguar etc.
