Carhartt WIP – Relevant Parties Vol.1
A Capsule Compilation
For the last two months we have been sharing RELEVANT PARTIES with you, a podcast series presented by Carhartt WIP, hosted by music journalist Chal Ravens, who talks to the founders of some of the world’s best independent record labels. The series has already featured impressive portraits full of fascinating stories. Stones Throw, Ninja Tune, Ghostly International and Jazzy Sport were the first four labels, more interviews with the creative heads behind NYC-based DFA Records and Munich’s Public Possession will follow. RELEVANT PARTIES offers insights into the idiosyncratic worlds of the tastemakers and visionaries of these labels, we get to hear how it all began, what inspires them and how they turn daring into success.
Carhartt WIP has now dedicated a limited series of capsule collections to these record labels, paying homage to their cultural influence and global communities. In collaboration with each label, individual designs were created, which can be found on T-shirts, hoodies and sweatshirts.
RELEVANT PARTIES Limited Edition Cassette Tapes
And it wouldn’t be a proper homage without a tribute on a recording medium from the founding years of these labels: For each capsule collection, Carhartt WIP releases a limited edition audio cassette tape with a compilation curated by the respective label.
The RELEVANT PARTIES Collection is available now at HHV:
