BOOK SIGNING: JAMES LAVELLE - Urban Archaeology: Twenty-One Years of Mo'Wax
Founded in England in 1992 by the young DJ and promoter James Lavelle, the record label Mo'Wax became an icon of independent music, a pioneer of new genres and the epicenter of a movement in popular culture.
Urban Archaeology: Twenty-One Years of Mo'Wax has been published to mark the 21st anniversary of the label, and coincides with James Lavelle's curated Meltdown festival at the Southbank Centre. The book represents a rich and definitive survey of the label's legacy and includes exclusive interviews with Lavelle, DJ Shadow, and the late DJ Rammellzee. With contributions from many of the seminal musicians Mo'Wax represented, as well as the artists responsible for its aesthetic, this book is more than a celebration of a record label: it is the record of a focal point in contemporary music, style, and culture.
