7th Records was created in 2016 by Rafael Dos Santos with the purpose to give an opportunity to every talented artist and put they work on the top. Many artists like Nobodee or Danas Music have join the adventure after that. 7th Records is a label which put a point on quality and hard work. Because there is no quality if there is no work provided. We set up a team of qualified people to follow our artists during their career in order to overcome any situation and to help them make their projects as excellent as possible.
A music label is above all a company that produces artists. Its goal is to find new talents and support them in their process of registering their projects, marketing their works and developing their careers.
Independent labels work the same way as major labels. Given their size, they do not have the same technical and human resources, so they outsource many responsibilities such as public relations. However, less profit-oriented, they offer artists more freedom, less restrictive contracts and a less critical look at their works.
Record labels are businesses, large or small, that manufacture, distribute, and promote the recordings of musicians they have "signed." Record companies essentially work around the sale, not exclusively of records, but of the artist's brand, his image. They consist of a large number of departments that explore all facets of the Industry and how to make a musician profitable.
They are very similar, if not completely identical. But we can make a small distinction.
A record company takes care of the design and manufacture of musical works, such as the pressing of an album and its distribution. While labels are a trademark that works around an image and a musical identity. Both accompany a musician in the management of his productions. But the label tends to reveal an artist as the record label propels it.
A label can give you a contract with a record company, a known record company can have its own labels. It's usually easier to get into a record label than a particular label. Because the selection at the entrance is based on stricter details than the talent, it is also necessary to share a common vision with the label's project. But a really good contract with a record label remains the synonym of absolute success in the music industry, even in the air of streaming.
So don't be surprised if the two terms get confused during this reading.
