On Record is a regular feature on FACT in which we ask an artist we admire to pick a record that means a lot to them, and use it as a jumping off point for a conversation.
In this installment we caught up with Contakt, who debuted on Local Action [disclosure: a label run independently by FACT's Tom Lea] in 2010 and has since released singles through DJ /ruptureâ€™s Dutty Artz label and promising San Francisco imprint Icee Hot. Brought up in Detroitâ€™s city sister Lansing, Contakt spent several years running the cityâ€™s Vinyl Addict record store before moving to New York, where he took on a managerial role at the Fat Beats distribution network and launched TURRBOTAXÂ®, a monthly party that regularly brings established artists like Terrence Parker and Robert Hood to NYC, but also is prepared to take risks on less established artists like Altered Natives.
