Which one would you rather OWN and why???
rando said:Record Label
Seems more legit
You usually hear big producers saying "I now own a record label"
You usually hear upcoming producers saying they want to start a "production company" where its like a group of beatmakers under a manager and make beats for various artists....
Now with a record label, you can be over artists and make beats for them and hire "in-house" producers to werk with your signed artists.
It would also be fun to be at talent shows and local events to look for talent.....just mi opinion.
Random King has spoken............
dwells said:this is funny. no one here owns a label. even if it is "amatuer records", it is still a production company. IF YOU DON'T HAVE DISTRUBUTION, YOU DON'T HAVE A LABEL!!!
dwells said:I would never try to set up a label, it is retarded. Its too much BS. A production company can do everything that a label can do. a production company can release music, sign artist, do shows, etc. Label don't devolop talent, labels takes talent that is already to go. production companies can sign artist under a production deal, and have a larger label pick the artist up, and the production company still has the artist signed. Labels can't do that.
PlanetHitzProduction said:Haha....well, you right man. If you don't have all the branches in your business plan laid out....promotions, marketing, new media, production, internet management and the like....sorry buddy you don't have a label. kinda like saying you have a car, but all you have is the shell of the car and no substance under the hood or seats on the inside....Cause that'll how you'll feel when an artist takes you a lil too seriously about your 'label' only to find out you have no distribution, no marketing teams, no a&r department and such.....
I'd go with a production company....build my own studio, and work freelance.
PlanetHitzProduction said:Yeah! somebody gets it! Wayy too much BS on starting a label...believe me I tried...it's insane. Honestly I feel production companies are the new labels...will be moreso in the future. If I would use some imagery to describe it.... Production companies are the cooks and chefs in a takeout resturant...they use the food, *the artists* get them ready, preparing them and all that good stuff and send them for delivery....though a label's distribution.
