UNKLE - Interview With James Lavelle album
James Lavelle (born 22 February 1974) is an English electronic musician, record label owner and curator. He founded the Mo'Wax record label in 1992, and has been the only constant member of UNKLE. He was the subject of 2018 documentary film The Man From Mo'Wax. Lavelle and Tim Goldsworthy co-founded Mo'Wax in 1992.
James Lavelle is sitting on a balcony overlooking the Thames at London’s Southbank Centre reflecting on his glory days as head of Mo’Wax, the record label he founded in 1992 when he was just 18 years’ old, and which. Lavelle may have since slipped off the cultural radar but he has been far from idle. He’s toured the world with UNKLE, started a new label called Surrender All, put on art exhibitions, made movie soundtracks (including for the Ray Winstone crime drama Sexy Beast) and remixed everyone from Queens of the Stone Age to Lana Del Rey. There have also been DJ residencies at clubs in LA, New York, Berlin and Singapore, although now he has a commitment closer to home.
UNKLE were originally founded by James Lavelle and Tim Goldsworthy in 1992. James Lavelle also founded the Mo' Wax label that with its roster of intelligent UK hip-hop became a subculture in its own right. One of the key factors in allowing UNKLE to inhabit these multiple worlds simultaneously was their ability to work with others. Guest vocalists and musicians punctuate the sub-sections of the UNKLE back catalogue, marrying electronic counterculture with leading independent voices of the moment.

Especially with James Lavelle. Who else had a big album like that? But the issues he's had in his personal life, the divorces - there's a lot to relate to there. I think the main thing is friendship. It was an emotional watch for him. But the emotional feedback we got from him on that led to us doing another interview with the Turner Prize nominee Nathan Coley, - he said, "You've got to speak to Nathan. And that I think made the film even more insightful. He also gave us a bunch of photographs as well, which he thought would help.

James Lavelle Interview. It seems the Boxed Boys at Global Underground have come upon a Catch-22, and British DJ James Lavelle has somehow become entangled smack dab in the middle of the mess. Minus a few exceptions, most of the Global Underground releases can be filed (barring nit-picky sub genres) under progressive house. However, with names like John Digweed, Sasha, and Dave Seaman on their roster, that is by no means a bad thing.
