SUK83 | Suckmusic 10 Years14th August 2020
The unprecedented circumstances the world has faced this year as a result of COVID-19 have impacted every aspect of our lives and changed the world as we know it. It is still uncertain when things will begin to resemble some sort of normality in the music and hospitality industry and then, once it eventually gets going, what that will look, feel and sound like. it.
As a record label we will continue to do what we have been doing for the past 10 years and release new and interesting music. Given that most of the label and artist income is generated from the performance of our songs by DJ’s who play the songs at clubs and festivals, our artists have seen their income decimated as these events have ground to a halt. Many artists have also been overlooked by governments and most do not received any kind of income support despite the challenges they now face. Therefore at Suckmusic we will look to exhaust all alternative avenues to support artists signed to our label through this extremely challenging time.
We understand that many people are doing it tough at the moment, but if you have enjoyed our music over the years or can appreciate and respect just how important a vibrant electronic music culture is and you have a little to spare, your support will mean everything and will help our artists make ends meet until the show literally gets back on the road and income starts coming back in again. Every person who donates will be invited to join our exclusive Suckmusic Pre-release Promotional List and be granted early access to all future label releases for the next 10 years, along with download links to the Suckmusic 10 Year DJ mixes upon its release in August. GoFundMe Campaign
The funds we received will be distributed equally between the 8 artists who have an agreement with the label (excluding label founder Nick Coleman who is also a signed artist), and we hope to achieve our goal of $10,000 by October.
In addition, to mark our 10th year in what has been an extraordinary 2020, we briefly pause for reflection before looking into the future. So it is with the greatest of pleasure that we present to you the labels first mix compilation – Suckmusic 10 Years. This compilation of music, presented in the form of 2 DJ mixes and a Coda, embodies everything the label was, is and will continue to be. A big thank you to Spacey Space, Mount Mike and label founder Nick Coleman, who’s mixes encapsulate the musical depth and diversity of the label’s 150+ song catalogue and first 10 years.
For the remainder of 2020, 100 percent of Suckmusic’s share of sales of this compilation will be donated to all artists who’s songs appear on the Suckmusic 10 Year mix compilations.
Thank you and party on.
