“As a small, independent label it is always difficult to grow and stand out in situations such as this. Piracy cripples hard earned royalties which our artists are owed and money the label is owed so we can invest back into products and artists in order to be able to grow and output more great music.”
Mik Smith, Label ManagerInfrasonic Recordings
Ezel Feliz, :
"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. "
Juan Carlos Trujillo, Label Manager:
"Artists, companies and producers should be paid for the enormous effort they put in to this amazing industry"
Benjamin Woods, Producer / Artist:
"It's disheartening to see your releases you've spent countless hours and $ on up for free download hours after release. Especially when we're already getting so badly compensated with streaming."
