Super mad congratulations to Speech Debelle, repping South London, for claiming the Mercury Music Prize. When she says 'Thanks to my label, because they should have run a mile when i said i wanted to do a Hip Hop version of a Tracy Chapman album', she hits the nail on the head for me.

I'm not that familiar with most of her tunes, but i wanted to post more about her label, Big Dada, than anything else.

Since i was a yoot finding my feet with independent labels and new genres of music, Ninja Tune Records, and its sister label dedicated to Hip Hop, Big Dada Recordings showed me a vital path. For years they have been pressing and promoting quality British music, mixed of course with some epic U.S and Euro stuff.

Diplo, TTC, Roots Manuva and Wiley are just a few names now synonomous with 'urban' music who have released albums with this label, choosing it over majors due to the teams that run it, and the belief they have in their art.

Again, large up to Speech, but HUGE ups to BIG DADA!!!!!!!!!!

FINALLY getting some much deserved mainstream respect.
