Best Record Label - 2008
DJ Gilles Peterson and his fans endorse it. DJ Scotty Coats (see the Nightlife section of this issue) works there. It put out Blank Blue's Western Water Music Vol. II (see below). Just take a glance at Ubiquity's insanely diverse roster of artists for an idea of what's currently being snapped up by hipper music-heads the world over. From hip-hop to soul to funk to jazz to psychedelia (occasionally on the same album), Ubiquity's unifying characteristic is its emphasis on new, strange sounds—music that extends beyond regional and genre definitions, exploring the new possibilities available to musicians in the post-Internet age.
