- The relaunch comes with a new website featuring educational resources and sustainable merch.
Legendary UK label Big Dada is relaunching as a "label run by Black, POC & minority ethnic people for Black, POC & minority ethnic artists."
News of the relaunch broke today via social media. A longer note was also posted on the Ninja Tune-run outlet's new website.
"Working to amplify Black and racialised artists' voices, Big Dada looks to shift the narrative around this music, bypassing stereotypes to allow and encourage freedom to express oneself for who they are and want to be," reads the post. "Big Dada has a long history and heritage which will be built upon while deepening its cultural identity by supporting & offering resources to a new generation of artists."
The new website includes educational and informational resources such as legal advice for artists, a list of Black mental health charities and tips on how to release your music independently. There's also a range of sustainable merch.
Since launching in 1997, Big Dada has put out dozens of records by the likes of Roots Manuva, Visionist and Wiley. The next releases on the label will be revealed soon.
