Show Calendar


Everything James Lavelle has created and initiated has been driven by the same irrepressible sense of curiosity and an incorruptible willingness to take risks. The music released today under the banner of UNKLE is very different from early UNKLE records. The spirit is the same.

2014 was a landmark year for independent music svengali James Lavelle. Coinciding with his 40th birthday he launched Mo’ Wax21: Urban Archaeology - a mind blowing Kickstarter resourced exhibition and a lavish Rizzoli published book to celebrate the 21st birthday of Mo’ Wax records, the label he launched as a teenager. He was also the curator for Meltdown at London’s Southbank Centre.

Since the early Nineties James Lavelle has been on a global roller coaster ride. It’s taken him from being an obsessive 18 year old indie record label boss to the heart of corporate record company darkness and back to the light with an array of dynamic visual adventures based around the collective musical experience of his UNKLE project.

A child of the sampling generation, he has honed his curatorial skills while riding the tidal wave of information technology. The Nineties were hectic - an endless cycle of clubbing and unfettered creativity and his Mo’Wax label was bold, irreverent and “Kicking More Phunk Than A Shaolin Monk”. He released a flood of hip, deftly packaged 12”singles and ventured far and wide in search of like-minded souls. He forged links with Japan’s hip hop originals Major Force and DJ Krush but it was in Oakland California that he found the future - Josh Davis aka DJ Shadow. 

James Lavelle loves dj’ing. It’s back to basics. He describes his five year long residency at Fabric as “insane” and is happy to point out that he’s had residencies in all of the Top 10 clubs in the world including Zouk and Womb. 

Herein lies the journey of a hip hop, subway art, Massive Attack obsessed kid from Oxford. It’s been a wild and mind expanding journey.

His focus is always on the future. Watch this space.
