Cat In The Bag Records, a Jungle label based in NL with Tommy The Cat as the main man, featuring some of the best Jungle artists in Holland and some international killers. Other labels from Cat In The Bag are Park Sessions and Oldschool Shoes, focussing on Atmospherical Jungle, DnB & Triphop. A vinyl label at heart but digital also available.
Samuel van Cleef has been DJing since the mid-’90s, when he first discovered the fresh and thriving sounds of breakbeat, jungle, drum & bass and hip-hop. Operating under the alias Sam-C (and slight variations on it), he began playing and organising events within the free party scene in his home country of the Netherlands and further afield too, bringing his crew’s soundsystem to warehouses, abandoned swimming pools and disused military spaces and other such prime raving sites. Over the years he’d mainly spin hardcore, acid and tekno, and headed up the Dosis Decibel label group.
In 2018, however, Sammie returned to his jungle/DnB roots with the launch of his Cat In The Bag label and alias Tommy The Cat. Since then, he’s been releasing beastly tearout junglism via the outlet, and alongside the likes of Tim Reaper, FFF and Pastaman, while the following year he added another imprint, Park Sessions, to his repertoire.
