Can n e one give me an idea how to set up my own record label.where do i start???sum 1 please help me on this subject!!
This happened to the label I record for. We weren't doing bootlegs but we had a contract for a P&D deal and the distributor said they wouldn't put out any more singles even though we were contracted for 4 more! Their reasoning was that they were having money problems. Plus we didn't see ANY sales figures (they wouldn't give them to us) and obviously no money. It's difficult to follow up on this cause they're from the UK and we're based in the US. Go local if you can cause then you can show up with a bat if need be.Originally posted by Affliction
Someone i know did a bootleg once, and ended up with 500 copies which he couldnt shift. But then he got a phone call from a "distribution company", who said they'd take the whole lot on sale or return (no money up front). So in a couple of months he gave them a call to cash in, and they turned around and told him that they'd gone bust a few weeks ago, and there was no money

i'd say 9 out of 10 booties come from distributors these days.
well the ones i stock do.
if you have to drive round trying to flog 500 whites in this day and age then either a] the tunes aint all that or b] you dont know what you are doing!!
if your music is good you will get distribution [and if its crap in a lot of cases!!!]
