“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
Jamie Kemp, Director of Sales:
"Music is the lifeline to our business, without income from genuine music sales we would not be able to operate and support the wide ecosystem of incredibly talented artists that make up the Toolroom Family. Toolroom works with legitimate digital music platforms and has done for over 17 years now, these platforms have strict procedures and guidelines in place to ensure reporting, piracy and other key issues within the music industry are met with high standards. The Music Mission is a project that is invaluable – we fully support the incredible work that will be going on in the background to target sites that feel they can do what they wish without any label permissions, any reporting for artists and a disrespect for the music industry as a whole. The Music Mission is a key part of The Toolroom Family."
Mark Ellison, label manager:
"As a smaller independent label we suffer greatly with sites that share illegal downloads of our releases which cuts into much needed revenue for both the label and artists and anything that can be done to help stop this is well worth supporting as an industry"
Johnathon Tuke, Label Manager:
"We believe all artists should be paid fairly for the work they do ! "
