THE JUICE Fanzine - Issue #01 RELEASE PARTY


From day one, Juicy has been about pushing boundaries

Although we're a record label at heart, and we come from a punk hardcore background that we still keep very alive in everything we do, we can't seem to be happy fitting a mould.

As an individual who never had any special talents for arts, I also created this project to push myself out of my comfort zone and to express my creativity through a medium that was more about ideas and making them a reality with the help of friends, and less about abstract concepts and artistic values.


That's how The Juice was born, and it was really an amazing feeling to see all the hard work recognized by the people that showed up for the Release Party.

It was a very special afternoon in the company of old friends, new friends, and people that just wanted to check us out and see what we had to offer.


The smiles, the nice words, the people we met and the fact that we managed to gather people from different backgrounds, all hanging out, having fun and sharing ideas, are enough to consider this event a success.





Thank you for your interest, your support, your love. Thank you to the friends who helped out in anything that was needed, to the ones that cam from out of town, to the ones that were there in spirit. This is just the start.

THE JUICE Fanzine #01 IS READY! TIME TO PARTY!

THE JUICE Fanzine - Issue #01 RELEASE PARTY from JUICY TV on Vimeo.

YES. After months of preparation, gathering collaborators, interviews and a lot of visualization and design, the first issue of our Fanzine is ready.
It's called The Juice, and it's about music, arts, travel and everything in between. Emphasising on Do It Yourself and underground culture, our aim is to get to know projects and people that do creative and challenging things outside the mass-media spectrum. The Juice IS NOT about Juicy as a label or brand, so don't expect to read about us in more than one article and a couple of ad's.

It's a 8.5"x11" (21.59cm x 27.94cm) magazine, 62 pages, with coloured cover and black & white interior. It’s written in Portuguese and English, in a 40/60 ratio respectively. You can pre-order it here.

And with every copy of the fanzine, comes a gift...

THUNDER TIGER - Spares & Bitters EP

This will be our first DIGITAL release (don't worry, we'll keep pressing vinyl and physical stuff), which will be premiered on the party.
It's a 3 songs EP from our beloved Thunder Tiger, aka Bráulio Amado, 2 new songs and a mysterious cover of one of the tracks from the last LP performed by a third party. It will come as a FREE DOWNLOAD with the Zine, and you'll also be able to get it from our webstore on a Name Your Price policy (coming soon). Yes, we are that generous.

JUICY x RUINS Winter Mixtape


JUICY x RUINS Winter Mixtape by Juicy Records on Mixcloud


Time has been our worst enemy since the beginning, and once again we didn't manage to be as productive as we wished. Before we could release a second mixtape to the Autumn Series, Winter was already upon us.

So it only made sense not only to start a Winter Series, but to get a collaborator that fitted the profile. It's fair to say we got them.

One of the most recent and most prolific record labels coming out of Portugal is Ruins Records. They have 2 vinyl releases already out, and two weeks ago curated their first label showcase, joining music and arts in the same gig and giving support to other labels as well.

Without further ado, here's the words from the Ruins boys about their choices:

To us, this mixtape represents some of the bands that inspired the inception of our record label.

We give the nod to some classics, some modern stuff, and of course our two releases so far. We've tried to arrange these songs in an order that really flows, to provide the listener with something that's worth experiencing more than once.

Honestly? Just shred and destroy!

JUICY TV'S 100th VIDEO!

Today we posted our 100th video on the JUICY TV Video Channel. It's from BIRDS IN ROW and was recorded just last Sunday, here in London:


It's been a wild ride this one. When I bought myself a cheap camera and started shooting gigs I did it mainly as a side project to the label, just supporting the music and bands/artists that I love. I would never dream that we would reach video number 100, or that we would have almost 50,000 plays from pretty much every continent on the planet.

My infinite gratitude goes to Fábio who still today is the star of this project and a very talented videographer, to Nuno who helped me in the beginning and is still an active supporter, to Sunny and hate5six for the inspiration and to everyone who ever played or shared one of our videos.

On a side note, we will continue to use Vimeo as our platform for video. Not only Youtube has lousy HD quality on their videos, but they have turned into a mass-media platform that serves consumerism and tries to sell you bullshit at any click, and we do not want to be part of that. Vimeo is the best thing that ever happened to online video sharing. That being said, we have no problems with people downloading our videos and reposting them on youtube or using them for other projects, as long as you give credit where it's due.

We'll keep them coming, slowly but surely.
