back on one typical 1500 run of vinyl; and you could release about 6
to 8 records per year (on your own label) then that's a megre $8000
per year. You'd get more at 7-11 AND have better hours.
Say you figure in 6 remixes per year, 2 compilation inclusions and 3
tracks on other labels (pretty good going) then your annual income
will be about $20000. Still pretty shit. Although in the following
year (if you can still cut it) your remix/track license fee can
triple/double plus you may get more work; making an annual earning in
the region of ~$40000 *a possibilty*...
Add to this live performances, DJing and rare commercial licenses
(Ils "Next Level" returned 50,000 GBpounds for a Orange Telephone TV
advert - the label Marine Parade takes half) things start to look
However when you average this out with the two, three, ten years of
unpaid struggle [Hybrid = 7 years] it takes to get there... you'd be
better off making shoes for Nike in a Korean sweatshop. My only
advice is: don't do it for the money.
- That's a pretty silly.
My 19 years old brother get paid $2500 per month.
He works as a registered surveyor.
Easier to get license of a surveyor rather than find a label deal.
I am outta work for almost 3 month now...
Doing pretty silly stuffs...
Music industry must be a nest of silly people.

things work. If it was that bad; no-one would do it!
Having said that though; all that kind of stuff does happen if the
aritst isn't clued up to look out for it. Also I think the account
sheet at the end is meant to be a "so-bad-there-is-nothing-worse"

- Hi all,
Anybody got a recommendation (anywhere around the wold) for cheap, reliable,
quality record pressings (say around 500 copies)?

if you're in Oz, then perhaps one of the american jobbies would be
closer/cheaper. Just make sure they have done pressings for dance
labels before and/or try to get hold of a previous cut.
I would bear in mind however that the price for 500 copies is not
much different than pressing 1000? Always get a test pressing
(normally 15 GBP each plus the plates at ~100 quid) unless you are
able to sit in on the cut. The last thing you want is 1000 novelty
- Check discmakers.com. Right now I think they are
selling 500 for around $790.00.
