THE LABEL MACHINE provides all the training and resources you need to create and run a successful, profitable record label.

A clear path to success

The Label Machine will guide, simplify and clarify. All you have to do is follow it.

01

Plan. Create a tried and tested business plan that works, craft a logo that doesn't suck, get a unique label name that hasn't been registered on every social platform and get a distribution deal where you keep 100% of the royalties.

02

Build. Be a professional label with a properly registered company, have your recording contracts tailored to your label, and ensure you're registered with all the right agencies so you’ll collect all the money owed to you and your artists.

03

Run. Follow the blueprint for a release schedule, get a tailored PR machine that ensures your music is heard and playlisted, and ensure you hit the Beatport charts with a customised marketing plan covering every angle of promotion available.

04

Grow. Once the wheels are in motion and you're collecting royalties, learn how to set up your own publishing company, create an artist management division to look after your artists, and set up a customised-merchandise online store.

What Members Are Saying...

"Take the headache out of planning..."

"The Label Machine has been an invaluable resource for me launching my own label, the videos are especially great, really informative and the step by step guides totally take the headache out of planning."

Molly Beanland - Former Major Label Artist on VIRGIN RECORDS

"Clear guidance..."

“The Label Machine were invaluable in helping navigate the very daunting task of setting up a record label from scratch. Without their vast inside knowledge of what's required and clear guidance throughout, I know that setting up and more importantly running my own record label would have been a much much harder task."

"Really Helpful..."

“The label machine is designed really well, really helpful for young people like me, trying to learn more about how the industry works.."

I have had a great journey in music, from creating Never Say Die Records from scratch, starting the sister-label No Tomorrow Recordings, founding Disciple Records, starting and running Get Hype Records, and seeing them grow to be huge successes. When I looked back across them all, I saw I had used the same method and blueprint in setting up and running them, and I thought, what if I put all that experience into one place, to leverage all the contacts I have, to create a practical step by step blueprint, so anyone can do it themselves and aim for the same result?

What if there was one place for everything you need? What if there was a place with videos explaining everything you need to know, down to micro-details, like the exact words to use when emailing remix artists, or blogs to be featured? What if you had everything in one place so there is nothing to think about, just watch helpful videos and follow the step by step process to take you from zero to hero?"

And that, in a nutshell, is why The Label Machine exists! It is the answer to all those questions. It's over 10 years of experiences, resources, databases and contracts in one place so you don’t have to do the legwork and can focus on running a successful record label. 


I hope you sign up and we can help you have a successful music career too.

All the best,

Nick Sadler
