ثنائي خيار التداول استعراض المملكة المتحدة In a recent interview, Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke said that “it’s simply a matter of time – months rather than years – before the music business establishment completely folds.” And when it does, he said, “it will be no great loss to the world.” It is this seemingly bleak view of the music industry that motivates small Do-It-Yourself record labels like Boston-based F Nice Records.

go to link Headquartered in Charlestown, F Nice Records is “committed to the local music scene of Boston and New England,” said DAve Crespo, F Nice Record’s Head of Events. F Nice’s office is a warehouse surrounded by industrial tools, screen-printing supplies and quirky, artful furniture. There is laid-back atmosphere about F Nice, but these guys mean business.

ما أفضل موقع توصيات الاسهم السعودية Beyond being a record label, the F Nice provides much more than traditional record companies, offering in-house technology and production as well as viral and radio promotion, venue booking, merchandising and CD duplication. Matt Lax, president of F Nice, attributes much of their success to cutting out the middleman. F Nice is based upon mutual trust between the record label and the artist, as well as the artist and the fans, said Dex Ter, vice president of F Nice. He said that this formula has been compromised in the corporate music world. According to Crespo, F Nice seeks to “re-gain the trust of the music scene and to expose Boston for the talented city that it is.”

This new business consumed more time than Ter had for the band, so he quit the band to devote his time to the record label.

According to him, the label is meant to express their “overall opinion of the music industry scene” and their rebellion against it. “It is illegal to sign away your rights other than in the music business,” Ter said. He mapped out the current system as a series of legal bindings, where a band or an artist is perpetually in debt and don’t have ownership over their own work. He cited artists like Prince, who couldn’t perform under his own name for 25 years, as examples.

The company thrives off of the I’ll-scratch-your-back-if-you-scratch-mine relationship with their artists. The success and growth of the band is always the primary interest of their work. These guys are adamant about finding local artists that are worth protecting, and providing them with the services they need to make it big. When asked what specific sounds they look for in the bands they promote, book, or sign, Lax hesitated slightly before replying that they look for “good” music. He said that F Nice looks for bands that write their own songs and approach their music with heart and dedication. Ter said that the integrity of the artist is key for F Nice, “because you don’t make a deal with music, you make a deal with the person.”
