CUFF - Amine Edge on Royalty Worx.

We speak to Amine about how Royalty Worx Accelerate has been a game-changer for CUFF.

Royalty calculations are perhaps one of the most misunderstood aspects of running a label, but it's one of those tedious tasks that need to be done. As a label owner, especially if you're doing everything yourself, your focus is understandably on signing and promoting music, and if your anything like the vast majority of labels, finding the time to get your head around all the many aspects of royalty accounting can be nigh-on impossible.

If you're one of the many labels that don't have a royalty accounting system in place, Royalty Worx is exactly what you need. It allows you to generate statements branded to your label and pay artists quickly and easily, all at a super-affordable price that even the most fledgeling labels should find attractive.

With Royalty Worx already built specifically for dance and electronic music, we've launched a new service, Royalty Worx Accelerate. This takes all of the admin work completely off your hands - including statement imports, currency conversions, third-party licensing, physical sales imports, statement generation and invoice management - leaving you more time to do what you love about running a record label.

One of our biggest Royalty Worx Accelerate clients are Amine Edge & DANCE's CUFF label. Hailing from Southern France, Amine Edge & DANCE have built their own musical empire, drawing inspiration from early house, Phili Soul, hip-hop and everything in between. The men from Marseille have set about developing their own signature sound and have over the last few years made an indelible mark on the dance music landscape as a result of their raw talent and versatility as producers.

Their label, CUFF, has now been going strong for 4 years and has released more than 60 singles and EPs from artists including Shiba San, Chris Lorenzo, Nathan Barato and of course Amine Edge and Dance themselves. CUFF is one of the many label's that use Label Worx's industry-leading distribution and royalty accounting services; something that Amine says has been invaluable in the label's development.

'We've been with Label Worx for about three years now, and it's been one of the best decisions we made from a business perspective' says Amine. 'As a label boss and a busy worldwide touring DJ I never have enough time for the organisational side of running a label, so having Label Worx on board has saved me a huge amount of time, which is absolutely invaluable.

'Before we started working with them I never really had a handle on all the different revenue streams, but the Label Worx service really streamlines the process. Their inside software is very smart and lets you deliver really professional statements for our artists. '

'Not only is the service affordable, it also streamlines the process of collecting royalties from different avenues of catalogue exploitation. I think there will be a lot of artists missing out on a lot of potential revenue, and Label Worx can definitely help labels get on top of it.

But for me, the most important thing is that the Label Worx crew is not only a system that is extremely efficient, but it's also run by a group of people who are incredibly passionate about music. It really feels as if they care: they helped us at CUFF in so many ways, so I really can't thank them enough!'

Is it a good time for labels to release new music?

Industry News   /   April 14th, 2020

Is it a good time for labels to release new music?

With the Coronavirus lockdown in place around the world, many artists and labels are looking at release schedules and wondering whether to push back or bring forward their big releases. Sure, your standard promotional campaign might not be possible right now, but it doesn't mean you should sit on records indefinitely - this could also be a great opportunity to try something new; with an increase in captive audiences and changes to listener habits, this forward-thinking approach is definitely one which should be considered.
