"Nick and 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."

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