“We are a small boutique label that strive to make quality music and thrive in today's competitive music market. The ability to sell our goods and successfully capitalize on the digital market is often at risk at the hand of the rampant piracy sites who unashamedly post our entire catalog on their websites for users to adquire freely leaving us with very little revenue which impact our business. We like to think that each legal purchase of our music is honoring our artist and their livelyhood. Music is a labor of love, sweat and tears and needs to be recognized. ”

Richard Pring, House Music Producer:
"I see my work constantly on Pirate sites... It can be really demoralising especially after all the work I put into my music."
Senzo C, Traxsource Artist:
"I feel it takes the meaningfulness of a great record down to zero, why should the next listener buy it if its already online for free? #Rhystorical question"
Roman Zawodny, I own Urban Kickz Recordings aka UKR and UKR Recordings :
"Piracy not only strips artists from their rightfully due money, it takes the winds out of their sails of inspiration. "
Matthew Brookman, Label Manager:
"Support independent labels and independent artists by buying their art and not stealing it. "
