How membership supports our artists

You get all this great music at a great price but how does membership support our artists? Well, simply, it means the costs of a release are reduced for them so they make more money back, faster.

Your membership fees go toward offsetting the costs of a release – manufacture, promotion etc – so more of the sales make a profit, which we split 50/50 with our artists. We try and keep release costs as low as possible by covering them through your membership, and also through our label profits so each release works for the artist.

Most record labels put these costs into a ‘recoup’ figure which must be fully recovered before any profit is made, and then rarely split profit as fairly as we do with artists.

We believe our model is fairer, and recognises the creative and financial effort which bands have already put into each piece of music before they even get to releasing it. With income from other places really low for artists (ahem, streaming and live promoters, looking at you) we’re doing all we can as a label to support them.

So – you get loads of great music at a great price and know you’re helping independent artists not just survive, but thrive. Join our membership right here.
