What is The Label Machine?

The Label Machine is a community and learning platform for everyone who wants to start their own record label. Our courses are designed to help people with no previous knowledge or experience in the music industry. With our program, anyone can establish an independent label or self-release their music effectively, provided they have a positive mindset and willingness to learn.


After many years of starting and managing successful record labels in the electronic music scene, Nick Sadler founded The Label Machine with the goal of sharing his know-how with as many people as possible. Ever since its launch in 2019, our platform has received overwhelming praise from members who have successfully started their own labels.

Who is The Label Machine made for?

In short, The Label Machine is for anyone who wants to know more about the music industry!


Our platform focuses on helping people start their own record label or self-release their music using the "record label method." But if you just want to understand how the music industry works and learn about all the different parts, you're certainly welcome!


We have members who focus on artist management, booking, music promotion and even music law! If you find that your role in the music industry is not that of a label manager, you will still get plenty of value from The Label Machine.

What will I get from joining The Label Machine?

Joining The Label Machine gives you complete access to all courses, blueprints, checklists, directories, templates and Q&A sessions. You will also become a part of our ever-growing community where you can ask for support and feedback from Nick Sadler and the other The Label Machine members.


The Pro Monthly Membership also gives you unlimited email access to Nick and two monthly one-on-one coaching calls.

Is The Label Machine free?

While joining our platform requires a paid membership, The Label Machine offers numerous resources for FREE! You can go to our Resources page and download ebooks, templates and quick guides that show how much value our platform gives to its members.


You can also watch several of our course-based masterclasses, available to all non members in our Masterclasses page.
