Young Turks is a British independent record label owned by Beggars Group,[1] launched by Caius Pawson as an imprint of XL Recordings in 2006.[2] It has grown from an imprint into a successful and influential label, now partnered with XL and operates across a range of genres.[2] The label's current roster includes The xx, FKA twigs, Sampha, Jamie xx, Koreless and Kamasi Washington.

As well as releasing records, Young Turks throws parties[3] and host radio shows.

History[edit]

In 2004, Caius Pawson supplied DJs and sound equipment for a series of all-night dance parties he called Young Turks.[2] He enjoyed growing celebrity, until the police raided one of his parties and seized his gear. Pawson, then nineteen, took a job in A&R at XL Recordings, and quickly established his own small label within the company in 2006, also called Young Turks with Katie O'Neill and Tic.[4][5][2]

In 2009, Young Turks released The xx’s debut album, xx. It has sold more than a million copies, won the Mercury Prize and been awarded best British and Irish album of the year.[6][7][8]
