Beat the Rush! The Time to Get Ready for Record Store Day 2016 is NOW!

Record Store Day is cause for celebration for music fans everywhere, but some artists might not realise how far in advance they must plan. Here is a brief guide to what you need to do to prepare for your RSD release.

When is Record store day and when do I need to apply?

Record Store Day will be on April16th 2016 and all submissions for releases need to be made by February 26th by sending the Label Code of Conduct and Product Submissions Form to megan@eraltd.org, more info here.

How long before Record Store Day do I need to have my records made?

Most artists and labels will need to have stock with their distributor 2 to 5 weeks prior to RSD (please check with your distributor), however the manufacturing process needs to begin well before then.

When should the manufacturing process begin for my RSD release?

The sooner, the better! We advise artists and labels to get their master and artwork to us as soon as possible. We will always do our best to meet RSD timelines, but there is only so much manufacturing capacity and once it’s gone it’s gone, so please make sure you are first in line!

What now? Where do I go to get my RSD release manufactured?

Please contact us at mail@keyproduction.co.uk and we will be happy to help.

Album of the Month: Kode9 “Nothing”

kode9-cropOriginally from Glasgow, but based in South London since 2000, Kode9, otherwise known as Steve Goodman, set up the record label Hyperdub in 2004, infamous for unleashing artists such as Burial (and countless others) on the world. He has recorded 2 albums of his own with vocalist Spaceape; Memories of Future (2006) and Black Sun (2010) and released 3 DJ mix compilation, Dubstep Allstars vol.3 (Tempa 2006), DJ Kicks (K7 2011) and Rinse 22 (Rinse 2013).

Kode9 has also released tracks on Aphex Twin’s Rephlex label, Soul Jazz and Rinse and remixed for Lee Scratch Perry for On U Sound, the Junior Boys for Domino, Battles for Warp, and Dabrye Feat. Doom for Ghostly.

Kode9 vibrates parts other DJs can only dream of. His early DJ sets and radio shows helped spread the early dubstep sound internationally, but his sets now weave together an unpredictable, bass heavy mix of house, garage, dubstep, grime, footwork, hip hop, r&b, techno and jungle.

Nothing is Kode9 first solo record, is released by Hyperdub and it’s available here.

“The result is an affecting and arresting marriage between the pace of rhythm passed on to Goodman from Teklife, and the ghostly climate of Hyperdub’s earliest mutant dubstep releases. There might be a heavy silence beneath every rhythm, but Nothing never sounds like giving up.” Crack Magazine
