Grind Select

Check out and share our Grind Select Interview. This interview is part of our new Labels in the Spotlight Series. In this interview series we feature exciting labels from all over the world. As always: Share & Support!


Please tell us a bit about yourself and your label. Where are you based, what genres & styles do you cover… And when/how how did it all start?


Grind Select was founded by me (Jeremy) and my longtime friend and ex-metal/hardcore bandmate, Corey Regensburg (Moon Bounce) in early 2014. At the time, I was working for a larger management company and brought him on as a client. Corey had recently finished his Dress Rehearsal EP and we received a lot of empty promises from an affiliated label that was supposed to release it. Frustrated with the project not getting the attention it deserved, I left and the two of us created Grind Select, only thinking that it would be better to have some sort of name behind the record rather than "self-releasing". The name, Grind Select, had been with us for many years, as it was a term we used to describe hitting every button on a vending machine at once (lol). It has since turned into a beautiful label and web community with an array of quirky and accomplished artists from many different genres, all with a mutual respect for each others' work. I'm based in Brooklyn, Corey is in LA and our partner, Kyle, web/design extraordinaire, is in the Bay Area.


What are some releases our audience simply must check out? (Either new stuff or evergreen classics)


Moon Bounce – Dress Rehearsal EP (the one that started it all)
