Hey guys my band "Soul Dreamers" Just got a record deal from 272 records in Hollywood.

Wondering to know if you guys know bout this record label and is it popular.
because we are an australian band and not really sure what is happening over the other side in america.

We are going to be on a compilation disc named "Acoustika 18"
Its going to be released on the 7th of October

you can buy a copy on our myspace (when its released ofcourse)

I think you're lying.

I agree. A user of a music-related forum being signed to a minor record label is way too funny, epic, unusual, ironic and stupid to be true.

Seems kinda like a joke of a label, and a heads up... just because they are in Hollywood doesnt make it amazing at all.

Regardless, cool I guess. Good luck...

Now after reading about the label, its a comp album, not a "record deal". Second, was there a buy in for this? Kinda seems like thats how they work it... Just dont get ripped off, thats my point...

I'm not saying not to trust the internet, but there's an alarming discrepancy between the number of iPads I've won & the number of iPads I own.

The only way to get myspace hits are

  • Whoring
  • Yet more whoring
  • Buying views (buying whoring)


so I wouldn't exactly use that

Congrats TS!

It looks like all they do is compilation records. What's the length of the deal etc? If it's just compilation stuff, that's fine, but I'd still shop around for someone that will actually hand you a proper deal if that isn't the case here. Plus, it being small, US based and (seemingly) compilation albums only, you aren't going to get much support from them. My band's deal is with a minor label in Finland, and we don't get huge amounts of support from them (although they have been dealing with 3 or 4 album releases over the last two months, so that's probably why).

So, you've signed to a label without knowing too much about them?
Is that wise?

I'm just gonna be honest with you, don't get your hopes up. This isn't a record deal. It's a compilation album. I'm not stealin your thunder or anything, congratulations! Getting on a comp album is definitely going to help spread your music. Unless they are paying you (which I don't think they are) I think your best hopes would be to have your music spread wherever the albums are sold. I would check with the record label and see if you get a cut of total sales of the cd (That should be your indicator right there), and if they have a contract to provide future (or any) recordings, promotion, bookings, or anything to further your musical career other than being featured on a compilation album. Rock on and congrats on the comp, just don't rest your hopes and dreams as a band with how this 'label' performs with you guys.

why?
my old band had a chance to be signed to a minor label, we just refused it because the terms were terrible.

...He was being overly sarcastic, it's like he had sarcastic juice poured over his sarcastic post, which was insanely sarcastic. Sarcastic.
I see you're not using the UG black theme
