Jack to Phono records was spawned from the naughty Jacques Laverne Empire back in 2004. We are purveyors of quality sound recordings. In our history so far we have managed to release some fantastic vinyl and cd albums. We hope you enjoy reading about them on our site.
Back in 1999, whilst we were based in Copenhagen, the label was formed because of the number of demos coming in. Jacques Laverne Records were involved in a number of different projects including club nights at Rust, Vega, Stengade 30 and Influx. Influx had a weekly night at the Bloomsday Bar with DJ Malachy and myself. The early releases on JLR were formed from many a guest performance at those messy nights! We began to work with local artists such as Blue Foundation, Ben Horn, The Bass Snatchers and Mamaluke. This was a fantastic time for us in Copenhagen- playing Roskilde Festival and unreal nights with Mr Scruff, Fat City, Quantic, The Mex, Bonobo, Soul Jazz, Blood & Fire et al- to name but some of the highlights.
