    Crazy stuff, and not good for us as we had our logo on a lot of their record sleeves and adverts :-/

    I'm sure Mackie is getting flooded with e-mails and phone calls at the moment, don't forget the labels and artists either!

    Good luck guys + girls!

    This is quite bad. Many techno distributors including Prime have folded in the past year, and now A-M, who had consolodated several labels left in the lurch from other belly-up distros and even brought on new up and comming labels. Very bad indeed :(

    Holy shit that is the most fucked up thing to hit the scence for a very long time. I really hope they get things sorted soon because the quality was always with them. Hope you get things on track soon, & what's going to happen to the Technical Freaks album release?

    As a label manager with labels there, no official line has been taken, so I guess we will know the end of the week or next week, but personally I have plans for our labels so watch this space....

    side note!!! :clown: < <<i've just noticed this looks like me with bunches in my hair sorry :D

    ye, well amusing really.
    sad about alpha. quality stuff coming outta there. And like someone said in doa, loadsa small label under alpha, are shaged.
    and really, i dont think theres much chance for alpha to stay alive if they owe to banks an shit. These guys are ruthless...
    If only mackie could explain to mr.HSBC or whatever
    <<Look, we got some quality stuff coming out, i mean check that CELL009, bangin innit?>>
    <<ye i like it, heres 100grand, and pay it when ya can>>

    ah, shit...[​IMG]

    There is a bright side.

    That maybe due to this there will be less dark tech step records for a while. :2thumbs:
