Yeah, Stellar is a label.

Addictive may technically be based in NYC, I'm not sure. But considering Saeed & Palash are from DC, you could make a case for DC.

Yoshi takes demos. So does Stellar. Actually, they all do. But it probably makes sense to target labels that fit your friend's style. Like don't expect Addictive to listen to something that's not tribal.

If your buddy has a track he really likes, he should get a batch of vinyl pressed. I think there's a place in Philly. Once he gets the vinyl pressed, he should give me a copy, give Buster a copy, and drop off a bunch at Yoshi and see if they'll stock the shelves for him. At least, that's what I'd do. :D

I am the PR person for Stellar, and we are indeed a record label.

Stellar Records is exclusively distributed by Unique Distribution in the UK.

And we take demos and love new talent...

a friend of a freind that i got a chance to meet during WMC told me that he mailed his stuff a whole bunch of labels and went to wmc last year (2001). although he's more a producer, eventually 2 of his demo's got into the hands of Pete Tongsmanager , who passed it to Tong who put it on air.... and he's been mixing stuff for WOW, Tiesto, Choakenfold, for the past year.

Therees a stoiry on him on Mixer mag from march I think....the one that Tong is on the front, there is an article on Tong and within that article there is an article on him...cant recal his name exactly..somethin' Gabriel or Gabriel somethin'...dammit I cat remember...dammit I'm gunna stop :roll:
