New York record label famous for its mellow approach to house music.
the label was established in 1990 by Alex Kaplan then a videomaker & DJ Smash (Whine Hunter) with A&R head Kevin Williams, a veteran of the New York club scene.
It was Kaplan who recorded the label’s debut single , Napoleon-Soul O’s “Come On Girl”, a jazzy , funky house tune that set out Eightball’s stall.
Artists and producers were subsequently recruited and acquired by word of mouth.
As well as stalwarts such as Joie Cardwell (“Goodbye”, “If We Try”, “Trouble'”) and Lectroluv (Fred Jorio) Jazz Not Jazz (DJ Smash Whine Hunter) Intoxication & Sax In The Ozone (Robert Aaron)
