Can you tell us a bit about the company’s history and its roster and a bit about the acts you personally work with at this moment? Beggars Group represents some of the most respected independent labels in the World; 4AD, Matador, Rough Trade, XL Recordings & Young Turk – their rosters are vast and varied, from Radiohead, the National, Queens of the Stone Age, Alabama Shakes, The XX, through the likes of Aldous Harding, The Lemon Twigs, Kamasi Washington, Sampha, Car Seat Headrest, Snail Mail, Nines, 1010 Benja SL, Parquet Courts, US Girls, King Krule etc. Currently I have the pleasure of working with all of them and the rest!
What are your favorite Danish acts? ICEAGE & LISS, both signed to our labels – and I really enjoyed Off Bloom when i saw them last year.
Best show you’ve ever seen hands down? This is a difficult one but At the Drive In – Camden Ballroom Dec 2000 is the one that comes to mind right now!
