Re: Is signing to a label worth it?

Probably not considering the shift in how music consumption works now. I would be scared to sign my name away to some label anyway. You never know if the people under the hood have your best interests in mind.

Kesha comes to mind. I believe that Dr. Luke (the head of her record label) did abuse her.

Abuse her?
I don't think we're talking about that level.

Also, these days it's very easy as an electronic musician to have multiple aliases.
Nobody should be getting owned.
If you feel like you're going to get owned in a contract ask your parents or someone you trust to look it over and don't sign.

Re: Is signing to a label worth it?

I'm starting my own label.. my music will never be a huge hit but I produce an awful lot of it so I want to put it out myself and not have to wait for some label to do something with it... which can take months.
Another reason is that I'm in the position to do it cheap, lol..


Edit: it'll be a good label though... serious biznizz and everything.
Edit: it would be different if Ninja Tune or Warp came knocking... but labels like that don't seem to sign anybody off street anyway.
