Paxico is a small, vertically integrated record label created by Chris Hund. The label includes help from Josh Hey, Milo Newman, Dennis Lynch, and other friends and cohorts. The slow-growing, idiosyncratic collection of handmade cassettes and art is an ongoing study of futurism and folklore realized in a series of releases. Each release is organized to show the special rapport between its audio and visual components. Paxico Records releases are also carried by select retailers in Japan, France, Australia, Germany, and the US. 

Chris was born and raised in rural Kansas. He lived in Rhode Island for several years, where he attended the Rhode Island School of Design for photography. Chris later moved the company to New York in 2010, now settling into the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn.
