Ian Chai is a lawyer, artist manager, and co-founder of Buzz Records – established in 2011 as an outgrowth of a garage venue that hosted mostly local punk and noise bands, it soon grew into a cross-genre hub of local and touring acts like Mac DeMarco and White Lung. Since the demise of the venue in late-2012, the Buzz crew of Ian (rice+cheese mgmt), Denholm Whale (Beeswax Booking) & Tom Avis (Hive Mind PR) have been dedicated to releasing music from select sonic mutants across the globe (see: Weaves, Dilly Dally).
