Favourite record label? / Dream label to be released on?

For me it's a toss-up between Warp (derr), Hyperdub, Tempa, Text, and possibly Rephlex.


To be released on I'd have to go with either Hyperdub, Swamp81 or Text because I think they seem to have the best underground hype atm hence my theoretical release would probably get some dedicated quality hipster followers.




Thoughts? - I didn't put much in btw, made this rather qucikly.

Re: Favourite record label? / Dream label to be released on?

IMDf Netlable of course! Well, sort of..if I could hammer out some sort of agreement for IMDf to handle the promo side of things and split profits with em, that would be cool..kind of a one-stop-shop. But that would probably mean this place would have to expand/change the way it does things..or as I currently understand it to do things at the moment..which is more than likely wishful thinking on my part.

Despite what a lot of the members here may say, I still would like to be making some hard cash from my music making..and I would rather see the likes of IDMf making something from it than some other label out there. A case of better the devil you than the one you don't.

Re: Favourite record label? / Dream label to be released on?

I'd love to be signed to Kitchen. Another one would be Schole (who I'm going to be sending demos to soon), and Slaapwel. I once sent demos to them and they dug it but were too busy with their schedule to release anything.

Re: Favourite record label? / Dream label to be released on?

Honestly, I'd love to be able to successfully release my own material w/o a label. Directly from my hands to the fans so to speak.

But on topic...even though I don't produce Drum and Bass I'd love to get released on MetalHeadz...just cuz that kinda Jungle DnB is what made me want to start producing. Fucking lush and dark

Re: Favourite record label? / Dream label to be released on?

serious wishful thinking but:

-brainfeeder
-warp (double derr)
-ninja tune


^ the big trio for me.
but i also wouldn't mind:

-stones throw
-alpha pup (dunno if this one counts actually)
-plug research
-tru thoughts


mostly any label that has some artists on it that i really dig.
now if we're not talking about the big dogs, then:

-yes, idmf netlabel, of course <3
-leaving records (i think would promote fairly well for a tape label

mau5trap, with the way things are going I wouldn't be surprised if he started signing more obscure artists either.

I am with relic here 100%.

While I would rather push my own sound out, Metalheadz has been IMO the most constant label producing amazing music since I started playing.

I want to be released on the label that gets me gigs.

My all time favourite record label though? Probably Hymen.

omg completely forgot about these!!! Tbh I don't think I'd go for rephlex lol. I think I was just watching some ceephax acid crew videos when I got the idea for this thread

Stones throw would also be pretty good. Unfamiliar with those other labels. will have to check them out
