Rough Cut

We play bass heavy vocal tracks that get the club bouncing…

Adam Gill and Brendan Maguire (aka Rough Cut) have amassed over 15 years in the music industry, which initially started with dj-ing back in the late 90’s on pirate radio stations and clubs across London, playing a mix of deep house, garage, breaks… and anything with a sick bassline.

A couple of years later they ventured into club night promotion, running the nights ‘Citybeats’ and ‘Friday Night Dirt’ at the infamous London superclubs The Key, Pacha and (the sorley missed) Turnmills. After its closure they set up 'East Project' - A record label, club night and music blog which they run to this day in East London. Last year as Rough Cut they produced their first studio track ‘In The Ecstasy’, and since then have had successful Beatport releases on respected labels such as Sleazy Deep, Gooseneck Records, G-Mafia and Dear Deer Records.

2015 has been just as successful with tracks signed to All or Nothing Records, Kiez Beats and Sleazy G, with collaborations with artists such as Dado Prisco, Monrabeatz, Lennart Richter and Tebah.
