The Three Label Types
What are the different types of labels and what makes Musi-x-C Records different?
The following list explains the three label types.
Major, Indie, Unsigned?
- Major Label: A major label owns and controls most of the capital in the music industry, not to mention they almost always control and own the artists music and creativity.
- Indie Label: An indie label is independent and often gives their artists creative control, along with letting them keep the rights to their music (although a smaller number of indie label’s may own and control their artists content).
- Unsigned Label: An unsigned label is an actual label, as opposed to someone just being an independently unsigned artist or band. Any unsigned artists and/or unsigned bands may use the name of an unsigned label without asking for permission. They may either be owned by someone or a company/organization, or they can be like Musi-x-C Records, which Musi-x-C Records is neither owned nor controlled by anyone or any entity, and is the first known ‘unsigned label’.
