James Lavelle

Mark Radcliffe chats to musician, DJ and founder of the Mo'Wax record label James Lavelle.

Mark Radcliffe chats to musician, DJ and founder of the Mo'Wax record label James Lavelle. He set up the label in 1992 and released DJ Shadow's pioneering debut album 'Entroducing...' as well as a host of trip hop and hip hop acts and albums. Collaborating with DJ Shadow under the moniker UNKLE, James also enjoyed huge success with the release of UNKLE's debut album 'Psyence Fiction'. That album, which featured guest vocals from the likes of Richard Ashcroft, Thom York and Ian Brown, celebrates its 20th anniversary this month! James' life and career is also the subject of new documentary film 'The Man From Mo'Wax', out later this month. He joins Mark to reflect on his life in music.
