    What is your favorite label of a small size? I'm not talking about the majors like Sony Music Group or RCA, i mean small labels like my favorite Factory Records, home of Joy DIvision, New Order, and the Happy Mondays.

    Jalapeño, Eighteenth St. Lounge, Montepulciano... no actually, number one would have to be Ninja Tune by far.
