SEEN on Dylan Powe

In a nice little interview, Dylan Powe talks to Mixpak about the upcoming release of »Global Gangsta« feat. Stein, Wiley & Joel Ortiz, his vision to build his label Prodigal Entertainment into a global brand, and the influence of Chris Blackwell on his work:

With how the world is now, one is foolish not to work with the best people you can, who understand your vision. I model Chris Blackwell. I think to myself, what would Blackwell do? Most times I can’t afford to do it, but I want to try and have his vision for Jamaican culture and music. [...]

[I want to build] a global Jamaican brand, along the lines of a 21st century Island Records. A whole aesthetic that starts with music, but ends up anywhere.
