How has it been get­ting your hands dirty at the busi­ness end of things with the new la­bel?

Future Music - - IN THE STUDIO WITH | VINCE CLARKE & PAUL HARTNOLL -

“To be hon­est, I re­ally didn’t know what I was do­ing in the be­gin­ning… [ laughs] I still don’t know every­thing, ob­vi­ously, so, for Paul, it was a bit of a leap of faith. It’s been a great start­ing point to get every­thing launched. It’s been a real learn­ing process too. I mean, I re­ally didn’t ap­pre­ci­ate what PR peo­ple do… you know what I mean? …un­til I ac­tu­ally started work­ing on this. You kind of take every­thing for granted whereas now, hav­ing my hands in every part of the process, I’ve started to re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate what, for in­stance, Mute do for me. There are so many de­tails, which is the thing I think that re­ally shocked me. It wasn’t so much that it’s hard graft, rather that there are so many things to think about and that there are con­se­quences to every move you make and con­tact you make… It’s been fas­ci­nat­ing, re­ally.”
