When Peter Robinson launched “Dome ” in 1992 after working in A&R for major labels, little did he imagine that the label would still be going strong three decades later.
Yet here we are in 2022 and “Dome” is celebrating its 30th Birthday with the release of “Dome: 30 Years Vol. 1”, to be followed in June by a second volume.
25 tracks spanning from early releases like the Lulu/Bobby Womack Top 30 hit “I’m Back For More” and Richard Darbyshire’s majestic “This I Swear”, via Hil St Soul’s timeless version of “Until You Come Back To Me” and Brenda Russell’s Bluey-produced Latin favourite”Make You Smile”, right up to the present day and new music from Jarrod Lawson with his take on the Isleys’ “Footsteps In The Dark”, the Nigel Lowis mix of Dennis Taylor’s “In The Mood” and a new take on jazz-funk classic “Could Heaven Ever Be Like This” from Incognito feat. Bluey.
The label has been blessed to work with so many talented artists from both the US and the UK in its quest to deliver the finest in soul, R&B and dance music, and many of its newer followers from around the world are only beginning to discover just how many gems there are in the “Dome” catalogue. This compilation will certainly help that process of discovery, and there are many more great artists to be featured in Volume 2.
