Label Fair: BBE with Mr Thing // 04-03-19

Worldwide FM Label Fair is a mix / mixtape series to introduce passionate record labels, who champion new releases and re-issues.   To open up the series, we have BBE Music, Barely Breaking Even, A British Record Label started by two DJs, Peter Adarkwah and Ben Jolly in 1996.  They have been releasing numbers of disco, soul, funk, hip hop, jazz and house sounds on vinyl for 22 years and counting. The main key to the success of BBE is quality. Their disco albums have been curated by some of the most respected collectors and DJs around (Dimitri From Paris, Joey Negro and Sean P), their funk albums have been compiled by Keb Darge, Pete Rock and Kenny Dope, their jazz collated by Bob Jones, hip hop tended to by DJ Premier and their house aided by Terry Farley and Masters at Work.
