I'm so god dammed excited about this. Getting tunes that I've worked hard on mastered and sold, maybe even possibly pressed to vinyl. Even if they are a small label, its still something to be proud of, right?

I still dunno if I wanna take it.
They claim to sign artists who produce drum & bass with elements of breakcore and psychedelic trance, but I don't know if that's me. Yeah, I have a bit of techy industrial vibe in some of my tunes, but I'm really afriad that when I actually get signed (we're talking hypothetical here), all I'll feel is jazzy funky vibes, and I don't think they'd release that, you know?
What does UG think?

You keep seeing songs like KoC, SMBH, and Hysteria showing up on games, but I want Micro Cuts on either Rock Band or Sing Star. I want to see numerous masses of kids staring at the tv wondering what the hell they're supposed to do.

lol, industry nerds? Drum n bass (Except the chav stuff) is pretty underground and obscure. I don't think I'm facing a HUGE "screwed over" factor here, at least not as much as I would be with someone like Universal or Tower.

See the thing is though, I do EVERYTHING under the sun. Even if you look on my page, you'll see it all from jazzy stuff to dark and cold. I don't wanna be doing industrial sounding one week and housey sounding the next and not having a record label sign the housey stuff.

if you meet with them, make sure you get COMPLETE creative control. also keep in mind that you'll have to sell way more records to make the same amount of money you're making now.
#9
Well they only have one other artist, and I personally don't like him. Maybe it's just cause of the genre. I don't know man.
Feed your mind.

I'm not making any money now


Plus dance/electronic music doesn't turn a huge profit. I'm not looking to make a living off of this though.

Does it look legit?

I don't know.... Imma think this over during spring break, and maybe ask them to send me some paperwork if they're serious.
#17
someone said there's one other artist on the label. is this true? I wouldn't trust a label unless they had somewhat "made it." you know what I mean?

but get a lawyer and get signed if it's what you wanna do. congrats man.

here's there contract man, http://www.powercloverrecords.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=18 it looks pretty basic, but what the hell do I know about legal stuff. No tricky lingo or anything. I think it says you have to pay the fees if you need permission for samples. Not sure bout that part.

Have they ever released anything before? Looks like a scam to me, to be honest. I hope it isn't though!

Arrange to meet with the the label. Get a lawyer. Don't go into this without being 100% sure of eveything, because you could easily get screwed over.

Also, they've only signed one other artist? I don't particularly trust it. Look into all of their credentials.

They're based in the UK, unfortunately, but I will definately get some Legal help, thanks!

The one other artist thing kind of makes me a little off set, but I'll see if I could contact him (he posts on the same forum I do) and see what's up.

I got an email like this when I used to have a soundclick...I knew it was bogus because all I had on my soundclick were 30-second recordings for "Guess the Riff".

Drop Dead, Gorgeous got Rise Records attention through myspace and contacted them through it too....

So yes, a real label could contact you through myspace.

It happens all the time in underground music, which is why I wasn't suspicious there...
