London’s legendary De Underground record store has received a heritage plaque for contributions to ‘UK hardcore, jungle and drum & bass music’. The signs, in this case issued by London Borough of Newham Heritage Project, are used to identify sites of cultural importance across Britain.

The shop operated from 1991 to 1996 in the east of the UK capital, at 18 Sebert Road, Forest Gate. Owned by Mike De Underground, Cool Hand Flex, Uncle 22 and Randall, it quickly became a hotspot for 160BPM+ beats. A-Sides, MC Fats, Wacko and Marly Marl were also considered part of the wider ‘family’, with a long list of visiting dignitaries from the scene regularly stopping by. The address was home to a recording studio, laying claim to landmark releases such as ‘We Are IE’, ‘Melody Madness’ and ‘Six Million Ways To Die’.
