Originally intended as our first of our series of interviews we finally manage to have a nice and personal chat with head and creator of Our Records, George Kelly. He is more than happy to provide cool info and news as well as provide a funky mix for the 4th installment of Our Records Artist Mixtapes.
What is it like to run 3 independent record labels?
I feel very lucky and blessed. I like to consider everybody as family. It is very hard and time consuming work as we try and do our best for each and every of the artists we represent. I think we have done a good job so far.
What Genre would you describe your music?
I believe good music is good music so I like all good music. Obviously I have some favorites like soul,funk,hiphop,disco and house but I am never prejudice against something. I hope that outputs both on my labels but also on my personal productions.
Who is your hero?
I am at a funny stage of my life so at the moment I would pick King Julian :)
Plans For The Future?
Lots of very cool stuff coming through all my labels including a couple of new and upcoming artists that I am very happy for. In a personal level I am in the making of original material both as George Kelly and Capitan Futuro. I am also completing my first personal DJ Butcher album that I hope I have in time out to celebrate 5 years of Chopshop.
