“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. ”
Nate Laurence, Label OwnerPluralistic Records
Mikki Afflick, Label:
"I ask myself why should I even release music."
Kead Wikead, DJ/Producer:
"The only freedom artist have is being able to create music and content that has an impact on their lives and lives of many other people in the world. Do not take away that freedom."
Matt Pruitt, Traxsource Jackin House & Lounge/Chillout A&R genre manager. Label owner. DJ/Producer.:
"Relatively speaking, my labels do very well, and I'm fortunate I work for Traxsource, otherwise it would be nearly impossible to generate enough income to do music full time with the piracy as bad as it is. The Music Mission gets my full support!"
