RecordLabel
By Wojciech Koszynski
Whatisarecordlabel?
A record label operates as several different things for music artists as they can
complete tasks such as publishing, branding, trademarks, coordination of production,
manufacture, distribution, marketing, promotion, and enforcement of copyright laws for
the individual singles, albums and music videos. Also, they do accomplish talent
scouting in places like pubs, unknown concerts and street performers and the
development of artists to make them known performers or pop stars. For these artists
they have signed they control their contracts and managers.
Whattypeofrecordlabel?Why?
I believe that we would sign our artist into a independent record label, purely due to the fact
that we would be given a lot of freedom in regards to contracts and decision making for his
music, advertisement, videos and more. Also, we would have more freedom in shaping our
artist in the way we would want him portrayed or visualised by the media and audiences.
The label that we would assign our artist to is XL Recordings, this is due to the fact that they
are quite popular in the UK as they have artists such as Adele and The Prodigy assigned,
however the most important reason is the fact that they don't specialise in any genre yet they
have been successful, but I believe Pop is their strongest genre as Adele has earned them
the most money(Adele sent their bank balance from £3 Million to £32 Million) and has kept
her image the way she wants it, whilst being highly successful.
XLRecording
XL Recordings is a British independent record label, formed in 1989 by Richard Russell, Tim Palmer and Nick
Halkes and they are owned by the Beggars Group. They don't have a specific genre. They started off in the 1980s
as a branch of Beggars Banquet Records, they began with rave and dance music. In the 1990s, the label
specialised in anything from dance to drum and bass, also after Palmer retired and Halkes transferred to work
with EMI, Russell took over the business, which allowed him to widen his search for artists that were original and
inventive. They were really successful with The Prodigy’s second and third albums as they hit charts across the
world. The 2000s brought the company onto another scale after successes with artists such as MIA, Dizzee
Rascal, Adele and Radiohead, all of these artists winning individual awards for their work. The 2010s followed the
2000s with similar success and more releases
CopyRightCopyright is legal right formed by the law of the government in certain countries that allows inventors or creators
exclusive right to control the distribution and use of their original work. A contract for copyright can last between
50 to 100 years before expiration and that contract could be extended. Also, in some cases the owners can give
permission to use the invention if they receive a profit for it or the users don't make money from it For example, if
an artist posts a video on YouTube with their original song and hasn’t got a copyright on it any could take that
song or video and reuse it for anything to make money and copyright is in place to restrict that and takedown any
illegally downloaded copies. Therefore, a record label is responsible for making sure they have rights to the songs
of their artists to make sure they make the most money out of the artist. I am going to have to take this into
consideration because I am using a song I didn’t create, therefore I will have to ask for permission to use their
song and make sure I don't make any money from using it, if not i could get into serious trouble that could also
involve a lawsuit. I will upload the video onto YouTube so it is for free view, and make it non monetised, also I will
make sure not to use copyrighted images.
JWKStudioslogo
JWKStudiosOrigins
JWK Studios is the name of our British Independent record label that we have created. The name was created after the initials of my
whole groups first names, Justin, Wojciech and Kienan. We were founded in 2015 by Justin, Wojciech and Kienan, this record label
was founded after the creation of the conglomerate Psychosis Productions. The purpose of JWK is to scout new talent and allow them
to grow their persona and develop their careers. We will find these artists in unexpected places such as bars and other areas in which
music is produced because we want to give every individual a chance to spark their music career. We believe that there is a hidden
gem in every corner of any place, thus is the reason we want to scout in unexpected places. Also, the genre we specialise in is Pop,
however we do like to keep a great variety of genres on our tabs because we could find an artist that is impossible to turn down.
Our aim is to allow our artists freedom in creating their persona, so in the future they can express themselves in any way they want as
long as it's not controversial. These controversial acts could ruin our label and the artist because we want to build an empire that in the
future holds the biggest stars in the music industry and we want to build our artists of youths to that sort of level, where they have
acquired a fan base that is willing to follow their future steps. If we were to sign artists that are already developed with a persona we
would focus on mainly pop artists as it's something we specialise in, we could potentially sign artists such as Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars,
Selena Gomez and many more.
