Records was founded in 2000 by Jay Faires, founder and former President of Mammoth Records.
Wild Pitch is one of the most respected and influential labels from the early era of rap music," said JCOR founder and Chief Executive Officer Jay Faires.
Later in the year, JCOR will be digitally re-mastering and repackaging select Wild Pitch titles, creating enhanced packaging that will include video footage of Wild Pitch videos and assembling a Limited Edition 12" DJ Vinyl Box-set that will include select unreleased 12" singles and instrumentals of some Wild Pitch classics.
I am confident he will build JCOR into something special, and I'm glad Wild Pitch will be a part of it.
The knowledge and insight into hip-hop that Matt Kahane and Chris Nagy have will have an incredibly positive impact on the music industry and JCOR is proud to be involved.
We are very excited to do business with JCOR records," said Nagy.
The first release from GoodVibe Recordings via JCOR Records will be "Cuts For Luck and Scars For Freedom" by Bay Area recording artist, Mystic.
GoodVibe Recordings is distributed by JCOR Records.
We are creating JCOR in response to the constant changes occurring in the music business.
JCOR Records will be headquartered in New York with offices in Los Angeles and will be distributed by Interscope Geffen A&M, a division of the Universal Music Group.
Faires launches JCOR Records on the heels of his success with Mammoth Records, which he founded while obtaining his MBA at Duke University in 1989 with an initial investment of $400,000.
Always a force in the South and Midwest, Eightball and MJG are looking to increase their fan base with a fresh start at JCOR
