679 started life in 2001 when Nick Worthington left XL Recordings to form a new label in partnership with Warner Music, with the first release being The Streets seminal debut, Original Pirate Material (which was named The Observer’s best album of last decade.)
The label progressed with subsequent albums from bands including Plan B, Death From Above 1979, The Futureheads, Kano and Mystery Jets, Little Boots and also included the million selling 2nd Streets album, A Grand Don’t Come For Free. Not forgetting the million selling Plan B album, Strickland Banks.
679 continues to collaborate with Marina and the Diamonds, Benny Banks, Fryars and The Streets.
