With the 2012 nominations for the Association Of Independent Music Awards announced today (27 September), we thought we join in the celebration of all things indie by asking a couple of the UK leading independent labels to pick some tunes for us.
As both Bella Union and Ninja Tune are taking part in the launch of the new AIM Social night this evening at London's Village Underground we have playlists from Bella Union boss and former Cocteau Twin, Simon Raymonde and, representing Ninja Tune, Coldcut's Matt Black, who will both be on the decks tonight.
