    Default Labels putting out vocals?

    Why is it there aren't more of these?
    Do vocals not sell well? Or are artists just hard to work with?
    Or are artists just not delivering nowadays?

    No Hats No Hoods is pretty much the only label that seems to put out vocals (with two already scheduled for this year: Starkey's and Lil Narst's). But I don't see anyone putting out vocals bar them.

    I know artists often put out their own stuff, but it just appears from the outside like there isn't much interest from labels to do so, and that's why it ends up as they only put out their own stuff until big labels show interest.


    So yeah.... discuss

    My next release is a vocal

    MCs who are not working the live circuit wouldnt see the benefits of working with an independent label to put out a single. Most MCs dont even make music appropriate to fit any label that I can think of apart from No Hats No Hoods + I think in terms of selling vinyl, vocals are cool, if it is a massive track. Street Fighter and Slang would have done loads.

    You got Pitch Controllers bringing out Lock Off The Rave next week also.

    What would you say is the biggest vocal in the scene atm by the way?

    I wouldn't say a vocal stands out at the moment, probably 'cause I limit my listening to more instrumental sets. But Trim's latest few have been good. His Starkey tune, his Becoming Real tune, and his Skream tune, all tunes I would have on constant rotation if they were available.

    It is a bit annoying that the scene has no exceptional new vocals atm. I would actually put more out

    Have been wondering this for a long time. If there doing the rest of the work might as well go the full hog and put out as much as they can. Will try tweet a few people later and see what there saying.
