“Whenever a new release comes out for my label, it pains me to see the music available on these sites! People who use them may think it's okay because they are paying a membership fee, but they need to understand that artists / labels are not seeing a penny.”
Tom Lawson aka Uphonix, Producer, DJ, label ownerDivided Audio
Nate Laurence, Label Owner:
"99.9% of artists and labels are in this for the love of the music. They are not superstars; they are not millionaires; they are you and me - often not making a dime; and, in fact, often spending more then they make for their craft and passion. At Pluralistic Records, we donate a good deal of our proceeds to non-profits supporting youth and the arts. These pirate sites are anti-music, anti-art, and anti-artist. "
