Label Worx 2018 Roundup
Posted By : Alex Powell

Posted Date : December 12th, 2018
With new innovations galore and several exciting new services, it's never been a better time to be part of the Label Worx family.

Where the hell did 2018 go?? Here at Label Worx it felt like the last 12 months zipped past faster than ever before. We've been busy little bees, with plenty of new developments, innovations and ventures that have meant our feet have hardly touched the floor. We've worked with more labels and artists than ever before, and have had some spectacular feedback from clients about our services, for which we are hugely grateful.

This year we've added a huge range of labels to our client list: World Famous Headquarters (Botnek), Let Me Understand (Santos), Farris Wheel Recordings (Gene Farris), L'America (FANGS), ARROW Recordings (J.Worra), Jango Music, Maya Records, Glasgow Underground and many more, further establishing Label Worx as the go-to distributor for dance music labels, while D-Vine Sounds, UNDER THE RADR, Brobot Records, Bunny Tiger, No Art, Circus Recordings, PAWZ, Woah! Dad, Stealth Records and Viper Recordings have additionally taken advantage of our new label management services 'Accelerate', which has been designed to lighten the load co-working with their existing teams to free up time and allow them to focus on finding and signing new records.

We are humbled that such a range of labels and artists have entrusted us with their music, and are constantly working to hone our service. Thanks to each and every one of you!

So in the time-honoured fashion of looking back before launching ourselves headlong into the festive madness, here are a few highlights from 2018.

We've always tried to stay on top of innovation, especially when it comes to saving our clients time and money, and so a lot of time has been devoted to developing and launching additional products. One hugely successful example of this has been the Release Copy Tool, which has allowed labels to duplicate a release to reupload streaming edits of tracks, which is a huge time saver. We've had a huge focus on streaming over the last few years, and this is another step in the right direction when it comes to allowing labels to efficiently exploit their catalogues.

Similarly focused on time-saving is the introduction of our Traxsource Stats. This enables labels to check your release features, chart positions & DJ chart inclusions on Traxsource, all from one handy place without the rigmarole of trawling through the site: a labour every label owner has had to endure at some point.

We've also continued to develop further system integrations with both Facebook and Instagram. We now have a system that allows brands and influencers to use releases distributed through us on Instagram Stories.

Outside of Label Worx, it's been a hugely encouraging year for both Spektrum Talent and Lime Blue Music. With Spektrum, 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, Gene Farris, Jody Wisternoff, Junior Sanchez, 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.

Perhaps most important of all, our latest innovation, Lime Blue Music, focuses on one of the least understood - but arguably the 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, restaurant, nightclub, festival, 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, Glasgow Underground and Toolroom, all of whom we have helped explore and exploit a previously untapped revenue stream.

With all this going on it's hardly surprising that we've had to expand and recently welcomed Reece Sheppard to our Label Management team. Reece has already proved himself to have a keen eye for impeccable data management as well as a phenomenal knowledge of all things from house and techno, to jungle & D&B, and has fitted into the team instantly. Even more recently, Simon Burkumshaw has also joined our senior team. Simon previously worked as A&R for Defected and label manager for Madtech & Madhouse records. He continues to run his own brand and event's, Sense Traxx, and we're proud to welcome him aboard. We're a tight family at Label Worx, so to have found these two amazing human beings who fit the bill both professionally and personally, sets us up brilliantly for the New Year.

So that was 2018 in a fairly tightly-packed nutshell. We've had an absolute hoot working with each and every one of you, and even though it's been emotional, and at times downright exhausting, we wouldn't change it for the world. We have been painstakingly busy behind the scenes building and developing so many fresh, exciting and time-saving tools in the pipeline for 2019 and we can't wait to introduce them to you over the next 12 months.

Finally, if one of your new year's resolutions is to get your label in the best shape possible (and it absolutely should be!), check out Connor's wise words for getting ahead in 2019

Thanks for being part of Label Worx, and see you in 2019!
