Hip Hop as a genre of music is instantly recognizable. Samples from soul and funk records, vinyl scratching and a special form of poetry known as rapping, are some of its key elements. This sound originated in the Bronx in the late 1970s and has had a worldwide influence. It is often said that the golden age of hip hop was in the nineties. Whatever decade you prefer - we have a wide variety of American and German hip-hop in this collection.
Keith Haring began to use the public space in New York City as his canvas in the late 1970s and soon gained international success as an artist for his distinct illustration technique. In 1986 Keith was invited to Berlin by the director of the Check Point Charlie Museum to paint a mural on a section of the border wall. Overnight a large part of Keith’s work had been painted grey, out of protest. Three years later the entire wall came down.
To celebrate Keith’s colourful work we’ve put together a collection of records that feature his art. Our highlight: "Life Is Something Special" by the N.Y.C Peech Boys designed and signed by the amazing Keith Haring himself!

The focus here is not on a narrowly restricted style, but rather on a broad collection of artists who are somehow labelled under the generic term "alternative", but who each make very independent music. XL Recordings also stands for a certain quality and authenticity. And if you appreciate some of the big names who have released here, you can certainly discover great records in the repertoire, which wrongly are not (yet) in the public focus.
