Obesity and Speed is an idea sprung from the restless minds and hands of two best friends, Lyz Olko and Josh Conner. The idea came from dreams and nightmares, need for little sleep, and desire to create something special. The label was founded in 2006 and is New York City based.

The name “Obesity and Speed” is derived from song lyrics of a punk band that Josh and Lyz both were fans of when we were younger. The name, contrary to popular belief, is not a play on fashion’s standard of beauty, regarding weight and whatnot. It’s intended to be humorous without any serious underlying commentary
