The Man From Mo"Wax

Director: Matthew Jones
Duration: 116 min

James Lavelle played his first DJ set at 14, launched pioneering record label Mo'Wax at 18 and released the genre-defining UNKLE album Psyence Fiction at 22. His phenomenally rapid rise seemed limitless, but it’s only when you’re going so fast that the wheels fall off. The Man From Mo’Wax tells the remarkable story of one of the most enigmatic yet influential figures in contemporary British culture. Made from over 700 hours of footage, including an exclusive personal archive spanning three decades, the film shows a boy becoming a man in the world of music. On the other side of this no holds-barred ride into the life of an extraordinary man and an equally extraordinary era, Lavelle emerges as an innovative artist who thinks big and consistently overcomes adversity.
