New Year, New You Feb 08, 2021

I'm not going to lie... Last year was shit.

In case you missed it, Refresh went silent for the second half of 2020. The pandemic was one thing, but then life just piled on me and I felt the need to put the label on a temporary hiatus while I focused on my own mental health. It ends up it was the best decision I've made.

2021 has shaped up to be Refresh's biggest year yet. In case you missed it on the front page, we signed 3 new artists (that we've announced so far) during our downtime. Make sure to check them out: Biitchseat, Totally Slow, Hit Like A Girl. At the moment, we have 6 releases already in production, which is the most concurrent releases we've worked on ever... and we have more slated through the year. The website was offline for a few weeks while I gave it a much needed refresh (heh). All around its a new year. New us.

I'm still working through some new features and sections of this site. If you come across any issues or if you just want to shoot the shit, feel free to reach out to me.

Stay tuned. We're just getting started with 2021. 💜
