Description

Big Dada, home of some of the most maverick, forward-thinking and innovative artists in hip hop and beyond, has just hit double figures. To celebrate, the label offers Well Deep- not so much a ‘best of’ as an overview of the label’s history and philosophy, available on double CD (and later, DVD). While ‘underground hip hop’ has become shorthand for a kind of nostalgic belief in ‘real hip hop’ and dusty samples, Big Dada continues to evolve. Will Ashon, who founded the label along with Ninja Tune head Peter Quicke, maintains that Big Dada has stayed true to its founding principles, offering a home for musical misfits and pioneers more interested in producing something worthwhile than necessarily having a hit: “I always thought the basic principle of hip hop was to keep moving, to be constantly trying something new. To be fresher than everyone else!” Certainly, few labels operate with such a broad-church policy to rap-based music, both in terms of style and geography. “Hip Hop has saturated the breadth of popular music and culture,” Ashon argues. “There can’t be any rules about what’s acceptable or authentic other than whether it moves and excites you. That’s all we’ve every tried to do.”
