Clash Magazine: Nothing Stays Tha Same – Mike Paradinas

We have 20 years of experience so we can put together an album which is more meaningful and culturally relevant than some playlist. I think we can work with an artist and get the best out of them. And we’re good at breaking artists, you know. You can’t just do that with a playlist from some DJ who’s playing somewhere. There have to be several things supporting each other. You can pay for likes now, can’t you, so you never really know what’s authentic and real. I think the record label still is relevant in 2015 as a way of finding a whole sort of school of artists which you like, or a state of mind which you connect with as a listener. It can be a home for your taste.
