Distribution FAQ
  • I'm looking for distribution of my label/artist, what information do I need to provide for consideration?
    If you could please help us to help you by sending us your marketing pack or press kits along with samples of your product and including as much information about you and your artist/label as possible including: contact details, years established, product type (genre etc...), whether you are a single artist or a label, number of titles in your catalogue, planned UK appearances, UK promotional plans, marketing plans, etc.

  • All marketing packs & product samples should be posted to:

  • What are your opening hours?
    Our trade opening hours are: Mon ~ Fri from 9.00am ~ 5.30pm. We are closed Bank Holidays and weekends, unless otherwise stated. We have a 24-hr answerphone/fax service.
  • I recently sent you an enquiry/product samples looking for distribution of my album/label, why haven't I had a reply from you yet?
    Until further notice we are currently not accepting distribution requests from small labels/artists. Although we endeavour to try and answer as many enquiries as possible, unfortunately due to the massive volume of distribution enquiries that we receive on a daily basis, we are only able to reply to labels & artists who have presented us with enough, good information and/or strong product that after our consideration, we may then have an interest in distributing.
