Trip-hop star launches Brown Punk records
Trip-hop star Tricky has teamed up with Chris Blackwell, formerly his boss at Island Records, to launch new record label Brown Punk.
The label’s first release will be ‘Skating Your Pool’, a single by The Gospel featuring Kira, on September 10.
“Brown Punk represents a positive movement where you find intellectuals mixing with the working class, rock mixing with reggae and indie mixing with emo,” explained Tricky.
The rapper has directed a film about the launch of the label, which will be shown at club nights in London. See the label’s Myspace.com/brownpunknights for more information.
