Are we sure that Oprah Winfrey officially ended her talk show in 2011? Because it seems as though someone is giving away free record labels. “YOU get a record label! And YOU get record label! And YOU, and YOU… ” This isn’t a huge stretch from what actually seems to be occurring right now.
Add Bristolian producer Addison Groove a.k.a. Antony Williams (a.k.a. Headhunter) to the list of those idealistically trying their hand at record label-ing. His new label is called Lost in Translation, and whether or not future releases follow the same prescription, the first 12-inch EP, Audioporn, featuring Chesus and The Organ Grinder, seems to reside firmly in house territory. You can preview it here:
I’d link you to Lost in Translation’s website, but it doesn’t seem to exist yet, as spontaneously-borne as the label appears to have been. I’ve previously remarked at how difficult it is to start and maintain a successful record label. I’d like to formally retract the former part of that statement.
