Disc Makers Elite's Concierge For Label Refugees
Posted: August 25, 2008
NEW YORK (Hypebot) Disc Makers has launched Elite Artist Services, a new division aimed at major artists who want to go independent. It will offer manufacturing, distribution via Sony RED, download distribution, promotion and ecommerce infrastructure.

With artists like Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails and Tori Amos leaving their labels in increasing numbers, going independent has shed any stigma and is now seen as a major profit opportunity for established artists. Elite is designed to serve artists that have already sold 100,000 records,and there's a calculator that compares the revenue potential of going independent versus staying on a label. But don't forget to add in the cost of marketing.
