Label Worx celebrate a year of success.

Wow. What a year it's been. We know that it can sometimes seem a bit of a cliche to say that it's been your best year yet - but there really is no other way to describe how 2016 has been for Label Worx.

Where to start?

Perhaps with the fact that we hit the huge milestone of distributing our one millionth track? Or the opening of our new office in Berlin? Or the continued expansion of our UK offices, dedicated team and upgraded mixing & mastering studio? It's certainly been a year for growth and new additions to the ever-growing Label Worx family in 2016 include OFF, Simma Black, Play It Down, Lost Records, Snatch!, FSOE, Local Talk, ELEVATE and CUFF - we're now proud to work with over 7000 unique labels worldwide, without each of whom we wouldn't be here today.

Speaking of working worldwide, 2016 has seen members of the Label Worx team clocking up some serious airmiles - we sat on a panel at WMC in Miami and you might have spotted us out and about at Sonar, IMS, Movement Detroit, ADE and Paris Music Week amongst others. You can rest assured that we'll be back again next year, but we're also planning to add EDC Las Vegas, and BPM Mexico to that list - if you're going, we'd love to see you.

Label Worx has had a great year in the press too - we've dished out label advice via a regular industry column in Mixmag, we produced an exclusive mixing and mastering tutorial for Computer Music magazine, and Music Tech magazine featured Matt as their Industry Guru. Not to mention online features with THUMP, The Sun Clubz, Decoded Magazine, Magnetic Mag, YourEDM, Data Transmission, DMC World and more. Keep your eye out for plenty more too, we've got some fantastic ideas lined up for 2017.

But that's not all...

2017 is going to be even bigger than 2016. Hard to imagine, but it's true. On top of expanding our foray into events and live streaming, we'll be expanding our list of in-house services to make running a label even easier - tools that will help you with social media and marketing amongst others. And then there's our forthcoming 'Nothing But. Merchandise' service which will be a one-stop shop for all your label merchandise needs, in typical Label Worx 'minimum fuss' style.

Oh, and on top of all that - we're going to be celebrating our 10th anniversary in 2017, so you can expect plenty of big surprises to be announced very soon.

'We could talk about 2016 for pages and pages, but the important thing is for us to say thank you to all our labels and partners - thank you, from everyone at Label Worx, for making it all possible. We can't wait to share with you all our plans for 2017. In the meantime, we hope you have an amazing festive season, ready to hit the new year running.' Co-Director - Matt Abbott.

Denon DJ announce their new 'Prime Series' flagship range. #ChangeYourRider.

Our live stream partner and legendary audio junkies Denon DJ have unveiled their new flagship range, consisting of the SC5000 Multimedia Player, VL12 Turntable and x1800 mixer, along with an all new version of their Engine software, Engine Prime. We were lucky enough to be invited to a VIP demonstration of the new kit back at ADE in October last year and we're nothing short of blown away by the technology and build quality of the equipment. Denon DJ have been working on these products for the last 4 years and have created something truly magical. Could this be the first rel shot any other company has had at taking over the DJ booth, since Pioneer became the industry standard for DJ's in the booth? We really think so. These new products have been finished with remarkable attention to detail and allow DJs to integrate with the new setup, regardless of ever using Denon DJ equipment in the past, or not. We were most impressed by their SC5000 CD's players quad core processor that does all of the work Pioneers Rekordbox does but on the fly. That's right... There's no longer any need to set your markers and beatgrids using software and a computer before you go to a gig. Just simply drop your tunes on to a USB and the player will do it for you, Including Camelot Key tagging. Their internal Engine Prime software perfectly works this all out for you in a couple of minutes while you are playing another track. Analysing perfectly on the fly. You can also play 2 tracks at the same time from 1 unit, to 2 independent channels on your mixer. These are just a couple of the next level features of Denon DJ's new flagship Prime range. A serious force to be reckoned with!
