5 years ago it all started with our very first release the raw joints 1. we wanted to build a platform for our artists to publish their music as they see it. now 13 releases further we re ready to introduce our biggest project ever since: raw joints 5!! to celebrate our 5th anniversary we decided to do something special and we had so many tracks that we decided to do a triple lp with 14 tracks on it. a lot of new/old artists have contributed to this heavy weight dance floor bomb with various styles and energy. to top it off we asked our good friends from studio airport to complete this thing with a proper raw joint sleeve. the mask is the face of slapfunk and inside this gatefold sleeve you will find us all dancing to that one thing which unites us all: music! shout out to our dear friend vincent de boer for drawing the magic. with all the celebrations comes a europe tour as well so hold tight!
