    Public Possession

    Public Possession

    We meet Valentino Betz and Marvin Schuhmann, founders of the quintessential modern indie label Public Possession. The two fellow DJs take a hands-on approach: In addition to their idiosyncratic take on electronic music, the enterprise centred around the Public Possession record store in Munich includes also DJ residencies, homemade flyers and merchandise, the online station Radio 80000 and even a catering service – but everything they do happens on a small and friendly scale. And somehow the music reflects this too: a kind of quirky, laid-back and good-humoured take on dance and pop, from fuzzy house jams by Andras to new wave pop by Mozaika and dreamy Madonna covers by Bell Towers. Marvin and Valentino talk to Chal about the roots of the label as well as their thoughts and fears for the future, with dance music in disarray and big questions hanging over the future of their scene.

    Jazzy Sport

    Jazzy Sport

    We meet Taro Kesen, the co-founder behind Jazzy Sport, one of Japan’s most important hubs for hip-hop culture since it launched in 2003. Taking influence from the vinyl-worshipping beat culture that hails Dilla and Madlib as kings, the label has been a crucial platform for homegrown artists like hip-hop crew Gagle, veteran selector Grooveman Spot, and acid jazz ensemble Cro-Magnon. But while Jazzy Sport’s roots are in hip-hop, the label and its record stores are an eclectic portal for all kinds of music – and they’ve even branched out into physical recreation, famed for their ski trips and hip-hop-soundtracked climbing competitions. In this episode, Taro talks to Chal about hip-hop's global reach, clubbing in ‘90s London and his undying love for underground culture.

    Ghostly International

    Ghostly International

    We meet Samuel Valenti IV, head of Ghostly International. Founded on the outskirts of Detroit in 1999, Ghostly began as a platform for multitalented locals Matthew Dear, Tadd Mullinix and Todd Osborn, and later expanding into hip-hop, ambient and even harp music. Valenti has also been a savvy operator in the shift to digital media, pioneering new technology and selling everything from art prints to xylophones under the Ghostly marque. We talked about his early rave days, the loss of an important mentor, and how labels can survive “the dip”.

    Ninja Tune

    Ninja Tune

    In the second episode of RELEVANT PARTIES we meet Matt Black and Jonathan More, founders of London label Ninja Tune. United by a love of the new, the duo also known as Coldcut have been testing the limits of DJing, sampling and audiovisual technology since they first met in a Soho record shop in 1986. Through its long history Ninja Tune has released countless era-defining records from artists as diverse as Amon Tobin, The Cinematic Orchestra, Floating Points and Roots Manuva. As the label enters its 30th year, Matt and Jon look back on clubbing in the 90s, the invention of VJing, and how they made one of the greatest remixes of all time.

    Stones Throw Records

    Stones Throw Records

    In the first episode of RELEVANT PARTIES we meet Chris Manak, better known as Peanut Butter Wolf. As the founder of Stones Throw Records, Manak is behind some of the most ground-breaking hip-hop records ever made, assisting artists like Madlib, J Dilla and MF Doom to reach their creative peaks. But although Stones Throw will always be associated with a certain seam of underground beatmaking, the Los Angeles label is home to every kind of musical eccentric: from Mayer Hawthorne’s vintage soul and the eccentric grooves of Dâm-Funk to Gary Wilson’s lo-fi new wave and experimental pop from Sudan Archives. Manak talks to Chal Ravens about the label’s musical growth, his childhood in San Jose, the tragic loss of his rap partner Charizma, and the extraordinary experience of watching a Stones Throw single go platinum around the world.
