In 2003, the Hamburg label Eimsbush filed for bankruptcy. The label had been a platform for hip-hop artists such as Dynamite Deluxe , D-Flame and Illo 77 . Samy Deluxe, a member of Dynamite Deluxe, then founded the label Deluxe Records as a sub-label of EMI Group . The Hamburg rapper also opened Hamburgs Finest as an independent platform through which artists from his environment could publish mixtapes. Apart from the different legal status of Deluxe Records and Hamburgs Finest , the same people worked on the projects of the two companies. DJ Dynamite took over the management of Hamburgs Finest together with Samy Deluxe and Illo and Headliners were the first musicians to use the newly founded Hamburg platform. The sampler Deluxe Records - Let's Go! was created to introduce Illo and the headliners consisting of the rappers Eddy Soulo, Neo and Dashenn, who at the time of the release did not yet have a permanent contract with Deluxe Records , to a wider audience. In an interview, Illo, who had previously experienced the work processes at Eimsbush , explained the differences between the insolvent label and Deluxe Records :
“Here is a basis on which business is done, and the music is built around it. At Eimsbush , the music was there first and then they tried to run the business on the side. There were five people sitting on the couch and smoking one - now we're going to the studio to work. Rap is our job. "
