Sunday Best: One of the U.K.’s most respected independent labels, Sunday Best is the perfect partner for David Lynch to release his first electronic project. Founded in 1995 by BBC Radio 1 DJ Rob da Bank, Sunday Best Recordings emerged from the popular south London club night of the same name. A&R’ed by da Bank, Sunday Best is currently home to the likes of Kitty Daisy & Lewis, danlesac Vs Scroobius Pip, David E Sugar and Beardyman. As well as its reputation for breaking new acts, the label is renowned for its music synchronization accomplishments.
David Lynch: Arguably the most renowned avant-garde film director and visual artist of his time, David Lynch is known for his unflaggingly original cinematic projects including Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive, Lost Highway, The Elephant Man and not to mention his cult hit TV series “Twin Peaks.” Lynch has a history of working with a host of musical luminaries. While making Blue Velvet, he needed a certain type of song for an important scene, so Lynch and his film composer Angelo Badalamenti wrote the song “Mysteries of Love” to be sung by Julee Cruise. This led to the album Floating Into The Night, from which the track “Falling” was the theme music for “Twin Peaks” and won a Grammy for best pop instrumental. In 2008, having composed small sections for his other films and his musical ambitions growing, he became the eponymous creator of a record label David Lynch MC.
