SLAM DRAM - Soma Whisky

Wednesday, 23rd November 2016

Since its inception in 1991 on the streets of Glasgow, Soma Records has stood for uncompromising quality of the highest level in every area it operates. Soma has become an international brand as Slam's anthemic Positive Education in 1994 brought about an electronic renaissance that saw the group thrust into the limelight and green lit the furious rise of the label. Soma is also famous for the discovery of French duo Daft Punk and was the home to their first and much loved early singles including 'Alive' and 'Da Funk'.

Always at the cutting edge of dance music Soma has set a standard in House, Techno and Ambient Electronica throughout its history. Now standing tall and proud at the age of 25 and with over 500 releases under its belt, Soma has without doubt stood the test of time and maintains its forward thinking vision. To celebrate Somas 25th Year the label has worked with Creative Whisky Co and The Good Spirits Co to release some small batch speciality spirits. The culmination of this project sees the release of the SLAM DRAM, a very special 25 year old blended Whisky which we hope will become as classic as some of our records have become.
