A New Way Of Doing Business

It’s no secret that the musicians & artists of today are choosing a more independent approach to the music industry. However, taking on such a task involves a lot of time & entails wearing an awful lot of hats! Artists, musicians, managers & label owners all have to do everything for themselves to get the best out of what's available to them & that’s why the rise of independent Record Label Services may be an interesting option for you! But with such a large responsibility placed on the shoulders of just one person, it can be very difficult to not only keep yourself sane but also keep your head focused on spending the time needed to develop every other aspect of your chosen career.

Record Label Services, sometimes known as Independent Label Services or simply Label Services are a great choice for artists who’d like to stay independent, but also want all the benefits of being signed to a record label. It’s essentially the modern music industry’s alternative to the traditional record label deal. Label Services can usually include the likes of marketing, promotion of you music and management services where required and where available to name but a few. Obviously this depends on what kind of deal you as an act needs or decides to go for.

With these such services you generally only pay for the ones you use instead of signing into a full record label contract & with more and more artists fighting to stay independent, Label Services are an increasingly common choice. Here at BMR we offer all choices and work with each act on an act by act basis. Get in touch and let's see were we can take you!

Everyones requirements are different, and we can't help everyone with everything they need, but we will do they best we can to get your music heard and you in front of as many people as we can.

Our Mission

It's a simple idea & sometimes that's all you need! Are you an independent act or band? If so you know the hurdles that lay ahead in getting your music, recorded, heard and ultimately sold. Bad Monkey Records offer many different packages but most importantly we aim to take some of that stress & strain from you where possible and help with any of the above so leaving you free to do what you do best... Making great music!

We offer a personal, band by band, act by act service from signing to our label for full benefits of offering Promo Campaign Services as you have requested and charged at a rate that is affordable and not a rip off. All our Campaigns go to featured stations who are waiting to hear your music and these are on a paid for "Only What You Want" basis, so if that's all you need, then that too is fine so get in touch and let us help get your tracks to the most radio stations and promoters possible and all at a price you are happy with.

Also, through our Promotions department we will be aiming to take a small percentage of our fees charged, from those lucky enough to be in that position, to aid in smaller bands and their recording fees! this way those that have made it can be proud in the knowledge that they are doing their bit for the next generation of musicians. Bad Monkey's way of seeing sucess does its bit towards Paying It Forward

Recording Music

Our Vision

Well, it's a very simple one really. One that doesn't need too much rambling on about & one we think you'll like & more importantly, understand. That vision is to get your music heard, and purchased - through this site if that's something you are interested in -  it really is that simple,


There are far too many great acts & bands out there, playing in our pubs, clubs & small festivals who never get signed, never get the support that a label can offer & in turn never really get heard. Never reach that mass audience & here at BMR we don't think that is right or fair. You know the acts we are talking about, hell you might even be one of them! Our vision? To try and rectify that and give you the recognition you deserve. So sign up & work with BMR and let us help you get heard, heard in the way you deserve.

New acts or old hats at the scene, it makes no difference. With our extensive network & on site personel we can help you & your act to reach your potential, with full radio campaigns, personal pages for your act with direct sales capabilities to full label signing, it's your choice. As we said before... We just want you to be heard and if we can maximise your sales, well even better! 

Charitable Contributions

Bad Monkey records & promotions vow to place 5% of all money made as a company into a pot and distributed to charitable causes related to Mental Health & other worthy charities asked to help with.

Already we are please to announce that we will be working with Smart Radio 101's Annual Music Showcase, and getting involved with all of their events so aiding in the causes supported. Together will be highlighting the alarming growth in young adults, both male and female, who seem to think their only option is suicide. This ever growing number we are seeing of youth suicides is heartbreaking and we are proud to do what we can to help raise awarness and money to help those who battle this on a daily basis. 

All of our Radio Campaigns charged for will see 5% of our fees added to the overall fund so maximising the ammount raised and the number of people we can all help. As we say it's about a new way of doing things and this is just another way that all connected with Bad Monkey can help. Everytime you spend to promote your work be proud knowing that you too are helping fight the sensless loss of life.

Bad Monkey Records, Smart Radio 101 and you can be proud to know that your participation can help save a life and we thank you all in advance.
