"Big Dada has, and continues to be, a vital part of the Ninja Tune family," Ninja Tune founders Matt Black and Jon More (collectively known as Coldcut) stated in a press release. "It's an important creative force that champions wild & wonderful music, with roots in Hip Hop the label has grown to encompass a wide range of experimental artists."
Big Dada was founded in 1997 by English novelist and former music journalist Will Ashon. Its discography includes records from a wide swath of artists including Wiley, Diplo, Run The Jewels, Roots Manuva, and Darq E Freaker; and it also claims two Mercury Prize-winning albums in Speech Debelle's 2009 LP Speech Therapy and Young Fathers' Dead in 2014.
