Iconic British independent record label ‘Wall of Sound’ announce their 20th Anniversary with a series of ‘Off the Wall’ projects to celebrate their musical heritage. Wall of Sound was first started 20 years ago by maverick ‘Mark Jones’ who brought Big Beat to prominence in the early 90s and followed this with a string of genre breaking releases from artists as diverse as Grace Jones, Röyksopp, Banksy, I am Kloot, Tiesto, The Wiseguys, The Human League, The Bees, Les Rythmes Digitales, Reverend & The Makers and Propellerheads.
It’s quite a history and one which needs to be documented as well as celebrated. To do just that the label are launching a series of projects over the next 12 months called ‘Off The Wall of Sound’ which will include a compilation album, film documentary, book and 20 gigs & 20 festivals across 20 countries!
In addition to the label’s retrospective, Wall of Sound continue to march forward with a plethora of fresh and exciting artists including new forthcoming releases from recent signings Sykur, Killaflaw, Ekkoes and Kids on Bridges.
For anyone who has met label head honcho Mark Jones it will come as no surprise that the launch of this amazing 20th anniversary series of events is taking place on the 1st April! This will happen behind closed doors at a VIP invite only event at The Record Club in Camden where artists from the label’s past to present will DJ and perform live. Mark Jones will also be interviewed live on stage in a reversal of his very own ‘Question Mark’ series.
