    Thats what it seems like...

    I see youtube promoters popping up with the idea of making a dnb label, even a mate said to me yesterday he is making one!

    Is it really that easy?

    May go and make one then! :D

    Peace

    Its not as easy as it looks. However yes technically yes anyone can start a record label... just as anyone can run into a door, its just not really a good idea.

    tbh it does seem pretty ez to get a digi label started but then the amount of work that needs to be put into it to make it successfull is normally what puts people off.

    Anyone can make a shit record label, yes.
    It's like anyone can buy things! Of course you can make a record label but you need to put time, money and effort into it to make it look and sound/good if not it's just another of those 100 shit digi labels...

    really tho if you wanna make something out of it you have to put in silly amount of hours to get anything back. You will also lose your life for a year or so. haha
