Label Worx at ADE 2018
It's been a landmark year so far for Label Worx, Spektrum Talent and Lime Blue.
With this year's ADE just around the corner, and with thousands of music industry professionals poised to infiltrate every canal-crossed corner of Amsterdam once again, here at Label Worx we wanted to take this opportunity to round up a few highlights from the year to date, as well as give anyone interested in finding out more about our services an opportunity to meet up for a chat.
On the Label Worx side, the growth of our Accelerate service has been remarkable, with an ever-growing number of labels trusting our team to manage their labels day-to-day operations, looking after everything from release scheduling to playlist pitching. Recent additions include No Face, No Art, FARMACY & Freakin' 909/303, while Circus Recordings, Viper Recordings, Runemark, Woah Dad & Comeme are new Royalty Worx Accelerate clients.
Our distribution too has gone from strength to strength: we've now worked with over 10,000 labels and paid out over $35m in royalties across the board, one of the highest in the industry.
Spektrum Talent continues to grow at an extraordinary rate, with further expansion planned after ADE. 2018 has seen us book and promote sold-out debut US tours for several of our artists, significantly increasing their global profile. We now represent Sam Divine, GAWP, Rene Amesz and more world-class talents, handling all logistical and promotional aspects for the artist and leaving them in a creative frame of mind to further develop their sound and brand.
Finally, our latest initiative, Lime Blue, focuses on one of the least understood - but arguably most lucrative - aspects of music accounting: neighbouring rights. Lime Blue Music specializes in the worldwide management, collection and distribution of neighbouring rights, one of the fastest growing revenue streams in music. So if your recordings have been broadcast on radio, TV, in a public place such as a bar or restaurant, or on new media somewhere in the world, then there is revenue waiting for you, and we can help you get it. Clients include Fedde Le Grand, Tritonal, Fatman Scoop, Chillhop Music, Tommie Sunshine and Glasgow Underground, all of whom we have helped explore and exploit a previously untapped revenue stream.
Business aside, we're also involved in a number of parties at ADE 2018, chief among them the Farris Wheel X Stashed Showcase. With Gene Farris's legendary Farris Wheel label celebrating its 20 year anniversary in 2018, they've teamed up with DJ SKT's cutting-edge Stashed Music, so if you're into quality house music, we highly recommend making an appearance!
If you would be interested in discussing whether any of our services could help your label evolve to the next level, we'd love to hear from you.
