This is without a doubt one of the most exciting label showcases we've done here at BTR
New York, NY (PRWEB) March 18, 2008
BreakThru Radio (BTR), the Internet's source for the World's Best Independent Music, announced today that it will air a brand new specialty show from DJ Maxim, showcasing the Record Label Records. This unique new show will feature a hot playlist with many of the talented artists found on the label that is structured in a very different business model. The "Record Label" is the latest installment in the station's impressive series of record label specialty shows.
Peter Rojas, the founder of a new music blog, RCRD LBL (pronounced Record Label) Peter is one of many advocates of the idea that music shouldn't really be "sold," but rather used to promote other things, like advertised goods, with a portion of that revenue going directly to the artists.
On RCRD LBL, artists offer their music free, without restrictive digital rights management software (DRM). Peter said, blogs like his are "a huge force in music right now and in some ways more important than the labels because that is where bands are being broken."
"This is without a doubt one of the most exciting label showcases we've done here at BTR," remarks DJ Maxim. Record Label Records catalog is so chock-full of potential hits that it's kind of hard to fathom. There are songs from Ghostland Observatory, Andrew Bird and Kid Cudi that lay waste to anything currently in rotation on commercial/terrestrial radio stations."
The "Record Label Records Showcase" is available in the station's archive and program guide, along with all of BTR's previous record label showcases and other specialty programs. Listeners can tune in to hear DJ Maxim's picks from the Record Label Records roster by visiting http://www.breakthruradio.com.
