A world of labels and artists. Proper has label managers who are experts in everything from mainstream pop and rock to dance, electronica, jazz, metal, classical, Americana and some of the most specialist music from across the world.
I have witnessed first hand Proper Music Group develop into a successful, large scale operation whilst retaining their independent spirit and personal touch. Their support for Reveal Records started way back in 1998 on the opening day of our retail store, with Proper going the extra mile by hand delivering product to us to ensure our opening was a success. Proper are a now a natural fit for the sales and distribution for my Reveal Records & Management Artists. It’s a company still run by people you can reach, music people.
The team at Proper do so much more than just shift bits of plastic. There is a very pro-active approach to handling your product from pointing up possible campaign deals to advising on marketing strategies. As a small niche label it is easy to get by-passed in the melee of all the labels, but we have never felt that with Proper. The feeling is of a co-operative, equal relationship as opposed to company and client.
Proper Music distribution have been a vital element in the growth of our label. Del our label manager address’s our questions in a friendly and efficient manner. Proper has it’s finger well on truly on the pulse for Americana music, which means they understand our clients and place our releases in key record stores.
We have had nothing but positive experiences working with all aspects of the Proper Music Group! From distribution to marketing, fulfillment to administration, every one of our contacts has been quick to respond in a professional and courteous manner. Drew Hill has put together an all-around impressive team.
Proper has been a wonderful solution for our UK distribution. We are a smaller, boutique label and one always fears they might get a bit lost at a bigger distributor. But the absolute opposite has happened. The folks at Proper are responsive, creative and a pleasure to work with.
Being one of the, let’s say more mature companies in the business, We have been with Proper over these past 15 odd years and have to be classed as one of the old boys, but It really has been a joy to see both our companies grow together. Everyone at Proper have been so helpful and friendly making business that little more enjoyable. It’s more like working with friends nowadays and to say that in a harsh cut throat world can’t be bad at all. To the next 15 years.
Proper Music Group has been an outstanding distribution partner for our label. In a fast-changing and ever-challenging music industry, they have proven to be extremely nimble, combining a vast network of expertise with personalized attention to help us reach our goals and grow our business.
We love Proper! Always on it, proactive, reactive, responsive and lovers of great music. We have what we always lacked – a competent team-minded entity.
I have dealt with Proper on various business levels since the end of 2008, and in more recent years with them acting as UK distributor for the majority of releases across the Membran group. From initial set-up of new titles, to sales, ordering and logistical/warehousing matters, with the occasional piece of label advice thrown in for good measure, I have never found them to be anything other than fully professional and friendly.
