In 2011 Donald cofounded Gridwalk Labs, an electronic music netlabel. The mission of the label is to provide a platform for innovation in music distribution. The label is run with an emphasis on experimentation and seeing every release as a chance to test ideas that challenge the music industry. They’ve since published 13 releases and worked with several artists from around the globe. Access the discography at www.gridwalk.net
