Recommended Gem: Richard Russell – Liberation Through Hearing (Book)
A recommended gem of a book.
An inspiring and invigorating history of running one of the world’s greatest record labels.
Label boss and producer Richard Russell walks us through the highs and lows and lessons of his tenure at XL Recordings, working with era-defining artists such as The Prodigy, M.I.A., The White Stripes, Adele, Dizzee Rascal, and more.
Favorite part: “Liam once said that I was in tune with The Prodigy because I was equally committed to risk-taking as they were, and this is a crucial component of any significant creative endeavor. Put yourself on the line. That is the essence of artistry.”
