Detroit Record Labels
Independent labels exist around the world, but Detroit’s underground music scene thrives on them. These labels set themselves apart by their approach to the music business, with an emphasis on empowering the artist, rather than roping them into long-term contracts with less creative control. These labels also set themselves apart by their dedication to preserving the vinyl disc. Detroit artists frequently put out releases on different labels, depending on which ones cater to their particular needs for a given release. The labels all work together to ensure a healthy and competitive platform for artists to thrive in, which makes Detroit’s underground music scene unlike any city in the world.
