Appropriate appropriation with musician/radio producer Sophie Darling & Strut Records CEO Quinton Scott on this A World in London!
AWIL producer, Sophie Darling, has just compiled a fantastic and innovative chapbook in conjunction with superlative artist Alban Low, titled ‘Darling’s Global Record Labels’. It’s an essential & beautifully illustrated guide to uber-cool labels like Habibi Funk, AnalogAfrica, Teranga Beat, Glitterbeat, and Far Out Recordings, based on Sophie’s groundbreaking interviews & dissertation for her degree at SOAS. Catch the AWIL team roundtable discussion about crate-digging, vinyl revival, record-collecting, and the unprecedented success of independent labels that are propelling world grooves into the mainstream! Also on this AWIL, an exclusive sneak preview of the forthcoming Strut Records vintage compilation ‘Alefa Madagascar’, brought in by special guest Quinton Scott from Strut Records!
