Independent record label Reckless Yes has been shortlisted in the Mainframe 2020 Awards in the ‘Putting Derby and Derbyshire on the Map’ category.
The shortlist was announced online last week and the winner will be revealed at a ceremony in Derby on 30 April 2020.
Mainframe is part of The Big House, a collaboration providing sector specific support to digital and creative people across Derbyshire & Nottinghamshire, and the award category the label is nominated in looks at creatives representing the region on a wider scale.
Sarah Lay, co-founder of Reckless Yes, said: “Reckless Yes started out by wanting to do something different on our local music scene through a series of live events, and has since grown into a progressive label with an international roster and releases sold around the world.
“Both of us here at Reckless Yes have been around the Derby music scene for a long time, a scene that is often overlooked nationally, so it’s lovely to be shortlisted in a category which recognises the reputation we’ve grown beyond the place we come from.”
Mainframe Awards are now in their third year and represent the community of creative and digital business network which aims to put a digital and creative pin in the map for Derby and Derbyshire, ensuring that both business and the public appreciate the importance and value of creative business endeavours to the wider local economy and community.
Also shortlisted in the category are digital agencies Mr Shaw Limited and Bloc Digital, and judging duties will be undertaken by Simon Kirk of Marketing Derby. The winner will be revealed in an event at QUAD on 30 April – more details here.
