Now-Again Records is a Los Angeles-based music imprint that specializes in reissues and compilations of funk, soul, and psychedelic rock from 1960s to the 1980s. Founded in 2002 by Eothen "Egon" Alapatt as a subsidiary of Stones Throw Records, the organization has since grown into an independent label with a vast global catalog and its own roster of contemporary artists.

History

Now-Again was founded in 2002 by Eothen Alapatt, then-General Manager of Stones Throw Records.[1] The imprint was originally founded to reissue American funk and soul music following the success of Stones Throw's first anthology, The Funky 16 Corners, which had been compiled by Egon the year prior. These efforts included releasing music by artists like the L.A. Carnival, Ebony Rhythm Band, Kashmere Stage Band, and Amnesty.[2]

In the late 2000s, Now-Again embraced a global perspective and began also reissuing music and compiling anthologies featuring the 1970s-era musical scenes of countries like India (Atomic Forest), Indonesia, Zambia (WITCH, Ngozi Family, Amanaz), Zimbabwe, Ethiopia (Ayalew Mesfin), Nigeria,[3][4] and Iran (Kourosh Yaghmaei). Their compilations are complemented by independent research.[2]

Music from the Now-Again catalog is often sampled, in part due to their straightforward sample clearance procedure and curated libraries.[5] Kanye West is known sampling the Now-Again catalog;[6] songs by Beyonce and Janet Jackson have also sampled their reissues.[7]

Now-Again incorporated in 2010 and is partners with music retailer Rappcats and label Madlib Invazion.[8][9] Alapatt left Stones Throw in 2011 to focus on Now-Again, among other ventures.

Roster
