Renowned recording and mixing engineer Young Guru has been named the Director of Operations for Jamla Records.
The announcement was made Tuesday (March 31) via Jamla’s blog.
After years of being loosely affiliated with the upstart label, 9th Wonder, CEO and founder of Jamla Records, appointed Guru to the position. The two met in 2003, while working on Jay Z’s The Black Album at Baseline Studios in New York City.
“From then until now, he and I have shared the same principals on music and on life,” said 9th. “I’ve learned a lot about the game from Gu, and he has always been in my corner about my career, and most importantly, Jamla. His genius in dealing with sound, music technology, music history and the creative process is unmatched.”
Guru also shared his sentiments, after officially joining the Jamla team.
“I am excited to be an official fixture on the team as Director of Operations,” Guru says. “I am proud of and a fan of Jamla’s work thus far, and look forward to contributing to the label’s future success.”
In January, Jamla added Karlie Hustle as Director of Brand Relations. The record label currently consists of over a dozen artists, including Amp, The Soul Council, and Rapsody.
