How to Start A Record Label Properly with Nick Sadler


So, you want to start a record label or self-release your own music? Then this is the resource you need.

A record label is simply another business – and needs to abide by the same principles if you want it to be a success. A big part of this is having plans, processes, operation procedures and blueprints in place.

The Label Machine is the ultimate guide to starting, running and growing your independent record label. You will learn all about the music industry business and how to navigate the tricky dos and don’ts. You will finally understand and take control of your music copyright and get to grips with the legalities involved.

You will build your label effortlessly, learning how to professionally market your music and artists – allowing you to reach thousands of fans. And, essentially, you will learn how to create multiple label revenue streams to create an established record label.

Nick Sadler produced, remixed, and toured as the artist Mobscene and co-founded Never Say Die Records and Disciple Recordings. He has experienced all aspects of artist and label management, working with artists such as Skrillex, The Prototypes, Zomboy, Eptic, The Freestylers and Flux Pavilion, gaining valuable insight into building artists careers. He has also helped hundreds of artists and music entrepreneurs from all genres of music, start, run and grow their record labels through The Label Machine online platform.

“I realised that most of the information you need to run a successful record label is out on the internet somewhere, but there was no one place that had everything you need to be organised clearly and with guidance”

I sat down to chat with the creator of The Label Machine, Nick Sadler about his course and book on Twitch. You can watch the interview back now below.
