The #1 Trance Label Of Serbia And A Sobel Promotions Favorite LIVES
PULSAR RECORDINGS LIVES!
It is no secret that the trance label Pulsar Recordings was having financial difficulties and like so many indie labels, their future was in jeopardy.
Personally, I am a Trance Girl. This is one of the few labels out there which has kept trance in it’s pure form. It was true to the genre and didn’t water it down like so many other labels.
I went on a personal crusade to save this label. I was slapped in the face with statements such as “It happens,” “Find another label,” “Oh Well,” and my personal favorite from a well known person in the business “They should hire me and my company as consultants and we will teach them how to make money.”
What I found interesting most of all besides the fans not believing that a record label and artists weren’t making millions of dollars, but people in the business were angry. They were angry that a record owner would tell the truth. His label was failing and he needed help. These people couldn’t believe that a label would ask for donations to stay open. If they can’t make it, they should just go under.
Something Amazing happened. Unlike people in the business who just said that Pulsar should pack it in, the FANS listened. They opened their wallets. They understood and it was important TO THEM that this label continued. Not only that, but the actual ARTISTS on the label opened their wallet and donated to keep their record label going.
I have been in this business for over 20 years. I have never seen both fans and artists actually give their own money to keep a label alive.
Everybody who is receiving this email is either a DJ, Record Label or Artist. What can be a greater validation to have the actual fans step up and say “NO. WE WILL NOT LET THIS FAIL.”
The music business is failing. Nobody is making money, and people are willing to stab each other in the back to pick up that paying gig. We are forgetting one thing. IT IS THE MUSIC THAT MATTERS.
Pulsar Recordings has shown us that if you put out a heart felt product and don’t go against your beliefs, you may not make a million dollars… but you are doing something even more important. Your music MATTERS to the artists.. and most of all the fans. How many of us can say that our music has touched the hearts and souls of so many people? That is the importance of music. Not the drama, awards or making millions.
Pulsar Recordings may not have “Tastemaker” DJ’s and Remixers. That seems to be what is important to some. The status. What these artists have is something that all of us strive for. Fans who say your music matters to me. I am not willing to find somebody else and move onto the next person. I am loyal to you.
Barbara Sobel is proud, honored and humbled to be the Promoter of Pulsar Recordings and to be associated with some of the most loyal fans and artists in the world…. and to those people what matters most is THE MUSIC and they made sure it wouldn’t die. Carry On Pulsar. Thanks for being an inspiration to everybody in the music business and for being true to the music and not willing to change your standards even when things looked bleak.
