Bastard JaZZ

Sonically varied and tastefully-curated for over two decades, the much loved Brooklyn based outsider Electronic music label Bastard Jazz Recordings is an artist and producer-centric imprint that draws from the tidepools of Dub, Hip-Hop, Afro, Beats, Disco and House music, all the while maintaining a vibe that is unabashedly unique. Birthed in 2001 by founder Aaron "DRM" Schultz, the label has steadily built a global following of passionate devotees through a consistent marathon of vinyl releases, boundary-bending compilations and albums that have become collector’s items among music tastemakers from all corners of the dancefloor. With a borderless roster of artists from New York to New Zealand, coupled with an ever-lasting commitment to pressing wax, Bastard Jazz has signed and boasts such talent as Lord Echo, Illa J, Captain Planet, Potatohead People, Robohands,  Buscrates, Simon Mavin (Hiatus Kaiyote) and many more.
