The Lowdown: This Week's XLR8R Top 10 with Flying Lotus, Roman Flügel, Om Unit, and More

'Labels We Love' Is Coming Next Week; Vote Now and Tell Us What Labels You Love

While artists and music remain the primary focus here at XLR8R, we also know that labels continue to play a key role in the grand scheme of things. In truth, a case could be made that labels—and the curatorial function that they provide—are arguably more important than ever, especially when one considers that so many of the traditional music industry's gatekeeping and tastemaking institutions have crumbled over the past decade or so.

The name is pretty self-explanatory, but be on the lookout for several in-depth label features, along with shorter pieces highlighting a number of noteworthy outposts.
