Mission Control Recordings – A Different Kind of Label

What makes Mission Control Recordings different than other Labels?

When asked Executive Attorney Robert Ross and Co-Owner of Mission Control Recordings his reply was as follows:

It is a boutique Label based in  Washington DC, Label that specializes in an International viral and physical presence.  The Mission of the label is to identify the needs of an Independent Artist and create an opportunity for them.  The goal of the is to be able to provide for the  Independent Artist a lane to prove themselves.  We give them a platform that is specifically designed to showcase them in a major arena that they don’t have access to.  Our International presence both Virally and Domestically in terms of Physical and Digital distribution is unlike any one else out there.  Our Corporate Partners such as INgrooves Fontana, Sony UK, CINSAY, and FULLSCREEN are all designed to give the Artist the major exposure that they are looking.   That is what we represent, offer, advocate, and bring to the table.

The Artist has a responsibility as well.  It is a joint venture across the board.  It is an Artist driven label that is designed with the goal of giving the Artist what they need to have in order to succeed.  We are a Workshop, they provide the vision we create the project and sell it.  We have everything an Artist needs.  The Artist brings the blueprint aka the songs.  In order for the blueprint to make sense you need skilled advisors, skilled advocate, skilled craftsmen, veterans in folks that have done this for people in major level in order to make sense.  It’s a personal one on one relationship in which Labels have done away from that.

Everything has been a major glue factory like a treadmill where there is 100 people creating a product and upsell it by 90% in the states.  Example iphone is made in China for about the lowest price on productivity and then it is sold in the States for the maximum price customers can pay.

It is a process but Mission Control Recordings will make it happen for those Artist that are serious about their Craft.
