XL will forever be known as the record label that launches underground talent into the mainstream. It’s crossover successes are legendary: Dizzee Rascal, Prodigy, The xx, Giggs. While it specialises in big album releases (see Adele, Radiohead and MIA, among others), the label started as a niche dance label back in the late 80s and it continues to champion new talent today. In the last decade it’s welcomed Dark0, Kaytranada, Powell, Special Request, Zomby and more to its wings. Unstoppable.
