Moshi Moshi Records started off as a hobby in 1998, set up by three friends who wanted to work with the bands they loved.

We have been lucky enough to hear from Rachel about the label:

1.    Who are Moshi Moshi and what is the labels main ethos?

MMR is a London (and sometimes Margate) based record label doing its best since 1998. And behind the curtain its Stephen, Michael, Rachel and Minna.

3.    Who, in your opinion, are Moshi Moshi’s (3-5) artist(s) ‘to watch’ this month?

4.    If you could recommend 1 album to anyone reading, what would it be and why?

5.    If money was no object, which artist(s) would you love to sign to the label, and why?

The dream artist is someone who has established themselves creatively to the point where they can do things on their own terms. That’s when you can really have some fun and push the boundaries. Someone like a Four Tet perhaps.

6.    If you had one piece of advice to someone wanting to start a label, what would you say?

Enjoy it but also treat it seriously. It might be fun, but you’re dealing with musicians livelihoods, their hopes and dreams and the fruits of their creativity, and you should never treat that responsibility lightly.


Many thanks to Rachel for taking the time to answer these questions!
