Over the recent years, there’s been a lot of hype over self-releasing tracks and cynicism directed at labels, and while there are many arguments in favour of going it alone, the beloved record label is definitely far from being redundant.  It needn’t be a chore sending demos to record labels – major and independent labels are always looking for artists. From creative direction to distribution and promotion, there’s a whole lot more to putting a record out than just making it available on Beatport/Juno/Track source et al, which is why ”it’s a myth that artists don’t need labels anymore”.
