I am thrilled to introduce DI Records, a digital independent record label founded in 2019 with a deep commitment to quality music, mental health, and creating a positive impact through music. Our mission is to support artists who want to make a difference and connect with their audience in a meaningful way. Our Commitment to Artists: At DI Records, we believe that music has the power to heal and inspire. Our artists are not just looking to release music and perform live; they want to create music that deeply impacts and resonates with their listeners. We have partnered with Backline, a renowned organization dedicated to supporting musicians struggling with mental health challenges. This partnership underscores our commitment to the well-being of our artists. Key Services and Benefits: As an artist with DI Records, you retain the rights to your music and have the freedom to leave at any time, ensuring that you are in control of your artistic journey. Being part of the MISRA Records label group provides access to discounts at a vinyl plant located in Pittsburgh, PA, offering additional support to our talented bands. Redeye Worldwide Distribution: Our partnership with Redeye Worldwide, a leading distributor, opens doors to exciting opportunities, including registration on the Billboard charts and eligibility for synchronization with Hollywood. Their extensive network and dedicated sync library can bring your music to a global audience at any moment. Redeye Worldwide's own marketing team pitches to editorial playlists, offering greater exposure for your music across various platforms. Additionally, your music is automatically submitted to Touchtunes for consideration. Potentially reaching over 65,000 establishments in the US, ensures that your music is heard in diverse settings. Vevo Video Distribution: We offer Vevo video distribution, providing access to their editorial playlists without charging upload fees. The potential to reach a wider audience across platforms such as YouTube, Apple TV, Comcast, and many more is a remarkable opportunity for our artists. Additional Sync Opportunities and Promotional Support: Our partnership with PA74 Music offers additional sync opportunities, expanding the potential reach of your music. With over 2000 active press contacts and radio contacts, we ensure that your music reaches the right audience. Additionally, our collaboration with Globmetal Promotions offers promotional support for a nominal fee of $50. It's important to note that their occasional tour opportunities are separate from the promotion, and the costs for tour opportunities will vary with each opportunity. Insane Realm Radio and Dark Haven Radio Partnership: Furthermore, we are proud to announce our partnership with Insane Realm Radio and Dark Haven Radio, which gives our bands spins on their stations every day, providing additional exposure and opportunities for our artists to reach new audiences. At DI Records, we are committed to empowering artists and supporting their creative journey. If you are passionate about creating music that makes a difference and resonates with audiences, we would love to hear from you.
