how to...start a new label

Post by santorrr » Thu Nov 22, 2012 1:43 pm

Hello guys,
a friend of mine is wondering to start his own record label.. and asked me some advices.
Does anyone know if there are distributors that could accepti the "press & distribution" deal?
The concept is almost ready, 4 releases, logo+graphics, masters, remixers and promotion with a well known agency..
The idea is to make a techno record label on 12" and digital.
If you have any suggestions please feel free to let me know :)

Peace to the community!

there are not so much advises

its like a holy grail question.

the most and important word is: money (nowadays)

check gema, customer fees, distributions (word and sound, discomania, diamond and pearls etc.) and of course record fabrics.

There's like 0 money in labels. People are real flaky too. Good luck.

decks.de does also vinyl distribution and p & d deals. communication with them used to be a mess but i heard it got better.
intergroove does too.
diamonds and pearls also
prime uk does p&d but is not recommendable.
st holdings did but they are cutting it down.


you just need a good product and it will be easy. if the stuff is average it will possibly end up with a shitty distro and personal frustration.

Since we moved here half year ago, I would like to ask you why you say they're not recommendable?
