The Man From Mo’Wax tells the remarkable story of one of the most influential musical figures in contemporary British club culture. As the head of the stylish Mo’Wax imprint, that came to recognition for being at the forefront of trip hop, turntablism and alternative hip hop during the mid-1990’s, James Lavelle was the coolest kid on the block - a one man British retort to the Beastie Boys.

Lavelle almost single-handedly built up Mo’Wax in his late teens and was a millionaire by the age of 21. Unearthed from over 700 hours of footage including exclusive personal archive spanning three decades, we get the rare opportunity to watch a boy become a man in the world of music. His phenomenally rapid rise seemed limitless, but it’s only when you’re going so fast that the wheels fall off.

He brought us landmark records from DJ Shadow, DJ Krush, Air, Innerzone Orchestra, Rob D, Money Mark, Tommy Guerrero and Blackalicious; proved a catalyst in the ongoing renaissance of punk funk by reissuing key Liquid Liquid releases and eased the enigmatic genius of producer David Axelrod into the spotlight once more. His way with aesthetics made record packaging and artwork interesting again with the help of Swifty and Futura 2000.


Starring: DJ Shadow, DJ Krush, 3D of Massive Attack, Futura, Ian Brown, Grandmaster Flash and Joshua Homme.

DJ's: Manuel Bundy, Stinky Jim, Dylan C, Cian & Vee
