Ollie Jacob (Memphis Industries)
Deconstructed #5: Saturday 1st September 2001
The Memphis Industries imprint remains undoubtedly one of the most progressive
independent label operating in the UK today. If the Walkabout EP from Blue States took the biscuit in terms of breakbeat orientated lounge core, Nothing Changes Under The Sun made off with the tin, while the Compassion album from Broadway Project combined DJ Shadow's cut and paste approach with the sixties film aesthetic of Portishead and the optimism of Saint Etienne Somehow conjuring cinematic sense from a thousand densely packed, stolen
snatches of sound. I'd written about much of the labels back catalogue, and interviewed Dan Broadway for a few publications, the chance to book label honcho Ollie was unmissable. Great set.
