IT ALL STARTED WITH
A COMMITMENT TO SUPPORT THE INDIE MUSIC COMMUNITY
Rotary Lab has been founded in 2015 by a team of DJs, label owners and, obviously, music lovers. It’s no secret that making a living in the indie music industry is a long and bumpy ride, which demands a clear artistic vision, a 360° understanding of the market, a true love for art and somehow, a bit of madness. This is what we have been committed to for about 10 years now.
Ever since its inception, the company has been a pioneer in managing the rights of Electronic Music artists in France, at a time when most of the scene had no relationships with collecting societies and publishers.
We see our agency as a family, nurturing close relationships with the artists we work with but also creating synergies between them, it being even easier as most of them are long time friends who have already been collaborating for years.
All the artists we are working with are both recording and performing artists, who all started their career more than a decade ago. Even though they are all connected to the electronic music scene in some ways, most of them are multi-instrumentalists with classical music training who create music that breaks the boundaries of genres. This is where we step in: our leitmotiv is to offer them a platform for their talent to shine outside of the clubs.
Being an independent music publisher is not only about collecting royalties to make sure artists can keep on focusing on what they do best: composing amazing pieces of music. It is above all having a deep understanding of their music, believing in it and giving them advices and support in their artistic choices.
