Rumours of the return of Nice n Ripe

UK Garage from Nice n Ripe and Grant Nelson

Rumours have been circulating around the web over the past few days of a return legendary UK garage label Nice n Ripe.

Grant Nelson surfaced on the Uptown Records Forum to announce that the back catalog of Rise n Shine was now available in MP3 format on Traxsource.com. Just as that bombshell had you drawing for the credit card, Grant decided to say that a Nice n Ripe resurrection may be in the pipeline.

The HnG legend went on record to say “As I write this i’m in the studio making the first release for the re-launch of an old label I think you all might remember.”

Later in the week the above image surfaced on his MySpace page.

Nice n Ripe were responsible for many releases in the golden era of garage, including the timeless anthem Together that featured on 24Hour Experience Part Two: More Dub Essentials.

I think we can all agree this is an exciting prospect.
