When indie hip-hop label Anticon co-founder Tim Holland, aka Sole, moved to Denver more than a half-decade ago, he immediately became immersed in his new town's music scene. Fast-forward to 2017, when the MC and activist is knee-deep in new releases, this time under his newish online label, Black Box Tapes Trading Company. Along with being a home for Holland's own recordings, Black Box Tapes puts out work by underground giants Church Fire, Echo Beds and Paperbark, and national acts like Jared Paul, Skyrider and Egadz. Far from just a passion project, the record label gives Holland the ability to do what he believes in most: help other artists get their music out into the world and get paid for it. The MC takes supporting his adopted home town seriously by cultivating musicians who make Denver the cool, interesting and weird place that it is.
