Ghostly International is an American independent record label. Chief artists include Matthew Dear, Dabrye (aka Tadd Mullinix), Mobius Band and Skeletons & The Girl-Faced Boys. Ghostly International was founded in Ann Arbor, Michigan by Sam Valenti IV in 1999. Valenti grew up in suburban Detroit, where, having become a fan of underground music culture, he would sneak into Hip-Hop clubs by carrying records for his Detroit DJ hero Houseshoes. Valenti later became a DJ himself, taking the name of DJ SpaceGhost. This theme is echoed by the name and logo of the company he founded.
