It's in between Art and Popular.
I wouldn't say it's necessarily one or the other.

well something had to lead me to those assumptions.

if you are such an ambassador for culture and taste, then explain to me why every artist on ninja tune and warp is shit, and more so , why saying your favourite rec is a jazz record isn't just incredibly try-hard

Discorporate Records has some pretty good stuff. As does Believer's Roast. Also, John Zorn's label isn't too bad.

Yeah intern for about 6 months. Real nice guys, still friends with the Vice President and other folks there. They're just all around good people with good taste in music. Most of it was just mailing press packs to people and updating their website while listening to music on amazing speakers.

Tzadik
Soleil Zeuhl
Staalplat (their webstore is fucking amazing)
God Mountain
Rune Grammofon
World Serpent (not such a big fan of their sleazy business practices, but lotsa good releases)
Textile Records
Warp Records
ECM
Maboroshi no Sekai
Ipecac
Sub Rosa

Not including artist-owned labels who almost exclusively do releases by said artist (Rabid Records, Seventh Records, Magaibutsu, Eskaton etc), since there are way too many of those.
>>
>>52198212
Yep, Mego and Kranky are the right choices.
>>
Cold Meat Industry and Tzadik are the most recognizable labels that come to mind.

>>52200997
I know you aren't technically including it as one of your favorites, but points for mentioning Magaibutsu, I love Tatsuya Yoshida

>>52198083
