Although it’s been some years since mutual friends introduced Ghettoblaster to Carl of Clan Destine Records, who has brought the world releases from Ela Orleans, The KVB, Funerals, Bestial Mouths and more, his approach to releasing music captured our attention and has kept us in close contact. With an unwillingness to answer to anyone, and a dedication to staying D.I.Y., Clan Destine promotes individual freedom, great music, and spreading chaos. Rad, right?
That said, Ghettoblaster recently caught up with Carl to discuss his favorite records of the year. This is what he was digging on.
