It's no secret that to run a successful label, it takes hard work, a vision, and great music to make it all work. Sure, anyone can start one, but not many are able to keep one going for 5+ years. What about 25 years? For Udo Wiessmann, this is the reality. HANDS, a label focused on industrial and techno, has been going strong for 25+ years and has released some of the finest records in the respected genres. In this episode of In Conversation, we discuss how HANDS came to be, the ups and downs a record label experiences in its lifetime, and why vinyl still matters.
