Debuting New Music
Your Label & Your Best Music Forward
Embracing this total power shift means not only exerting more control, but also confront with different lifestyles and busier schedules. Under such models, musicians must accept their status as CEO of their own artistic empire, and be wiling to make tougher executive decisions.
The artist-run label movement is growing most rapidly in the indie electronic sphere, where DJs and producers such as Gramatik, Mark Sherry and Ganja White Night are running their own, digital-only labels. DIY business models fit well with electronic music, as DJs and producers historically built their fame on the fringes of the mainstream through file-sharing and other internet trends.
