Music has always been a fundamental part of Rockstar Games — from the championing of underground artists and scenes across their titles to the meticulously curated radio stations of the Grand Theft Auto series and the introduction of fully-realized digital nightclubs in Grand Theft Auto Online with the After Hours update, as well as expanding the possibilities for in-game social spaces and music discovery with the release of The Cayo Perico Heist.
In 2021, Rockstar Games began to further fuse the physical and digital worlds of entertainment by teaming with CircoLoco — creators of some of the world’s most prominent and most influential real-world parties and one of the most recognised brands in modern dance music — to create a brand-new record label, CircoLoco Records.
So, what is CircoLoco Records? Take a look at the video below introducing the new Record Label.

(NEZ & Moodymann : 3 Songs, 9 min 17 sec)
CircoLoco Records & NEZ Present CLR 002 — the next EP release from the collaborative record label project with nightlife icons CircoLoco — release on Friday, February 25, 2022. This genre-blending turn features producer NEZ and some exceptional guests, including GTA alum Moodymann, Three 6 Mafia’s Gangsta Boo, and longtime collaborator ScHoolboy Q.
One half of the production duo NEZ and Rio — responsible for big-hitting tracks like ScHoolboy Q’s Man of the Year and A$AP Rocky’s Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2 — NEZ has carved a unique lane for himself, drawing inspiration from his hometown of Chicago and the sounds and style of Los Angeles, blending house, hip-hop, R&B, and electro elements in a sound all his own. Moving between genres and scenes quickly, NEZ has worked with artists ranging from Felix da Housecat to Theophilus London, 8AE, and many more across the musical spectrum.
This EP includes tracks that GTA Online players might recognise from The Contract and Los Santos Tuners, including You Wanna? — which can be found on a collectable media stick during The Contract and played back in-game via the radio wheel’s Media Player. Alongside it is Let’s Get It with ScHoolboy Q, which soundtracked the recent Short Trips with Franklin and Lamar trailer and lives on Radio Los Santos, and Freaks featuring Moodymann and Gangsta Boo, first heard in the trailer for Los Santos Tuners.
