Since the turn of the millennium, both

the record and recording industries have

gone through a major upheaval.

Because of the collapse of physical media

sales (CDs) and the minimal margins

on streaming, the record industry is a lot

smaller than it used to be, but it seems to

have now found its footing.

In this issue we interviewed four Brooklyn

label insiders about how they operate

within this new scenario. The result is a

feature many of our musician readers

should find informative, and at times

even surprising.

Recording also went through a similar

transition caused by the rise of home

recording, which empowered the artist—

while killing many professional studios.

The advice we’ll be providing for musicians

about recording is even better: six

live classes about mixing with some of

the best producers in the world, at the

fourth edition of the NYC Mixcon, hosted

at the Manhattan Center on July 21-22.

Hope to see you there!
