Label
Partisan Records
Partisan Records is an independent record label with offices in Los Angeles, London, Mexico City, as well as in New York City, where the company was co-founded in 2007 by Tim Putnam and Ian Wheeler. The label, initially run out of Putnam’s South Brooklyn apartment, relocated in 2009 to their flagship office in Williamsburg where they still reside. Holy Sons' Decline Of The West was the first release on the label, and early success followed shortly thereafter with the release of Deer Tick's War Elephant.

In 2008, Putnam was approached by Knitting Factory Entertainment to form a strategic partnership with Partisan. Together they've reissued the Fela Kuti catalogue and revived their label, Knitting Factory Records, which also includes Grammy-nominated members of the Kuti family, Femi and Seun.

Partisan has since cultivated an eclectic, diverse roster across all genres, prioritizing an artist-friendly philosophy, and achieving international acclaim. In 2018 they achieved a Top 5 UK chart position as well as a ‘British Breakthrough’ nomination at the BRIT Awards for Joy As An Act Of Resistance by IDLES, and in 2019 earned their first-ever Grammy nomination for Deran by Bombino.
