Record Labels

Domino Recording Company is an independent record label founded in South West London in 1993 and has since grown to a label with over 60 artists who mostly make indie pop and rock.

Dramatico Entertainment is a record label, founded in the early 2000s, whose portfolio mostly consists of talented indie singers. They also work with a number of other independent labels across various territories.

Cooking Vinyl was established in 1986 and is one of Europe's biggest independent labels. Their artist 'The Prodigy' had the UK's biggest selling independent record in 2009. The label were also nominated for the AIM Independent Label of the Year Award in 2014.

Some artist prefer to work alone, and instead release their songs and albums without a record label. One act who did this were Krept and Konan, who, in late 2013, achieved a Guinness World Record for the Highest Charting UK Album by an unsigned act, at number 19. They managed this through releasing singles on their YouTube channel, before the album was sold on iTunes and various other online platforms, as well as in stores.
