1017 Brick Squad Records
USA based rap label supposedly run by rapper Gucci Mane, although he has been in prison more that out on the street recently that is a somewhat dubious statement, and it is not even certain if the label is still active as a label. Apart from music by Gucci himself the label has released music by other rappers and groups connected to the Atlanta scene including the Ferrari Boys and has a sub-label called Brick Squad Monopoly although we have not managed to find any actual releases under BSM label. The label is distributed by Warner Brothers and does not have a homepage so the following link goes to their Facebook page. -- Official homepage
Formats supported : CD, MP3.

12 Apostles
Small British label that is best known for releasing 12” records (hence name) although more recent releases have all been on CD/MP3. The output is mostly from British and Aussie bands/artists, early output was mostly slightly left field dance oriented electronica & grime, minimal wave inspired at times, but more recent stuff has added more modern brit-pop and a folk/electronic blend that can only be described as New Age even though the label has them as Nu-prog. All releases from 12 Apostles have a distinctive self-produced/bedroom recording sound to them, to a point of being almost cute. -- Official homepage
Formats supported : CD, EP 30cm, LP, MP3.

Canadian label that specialises in electronica, what would broadly be described as ambientwith some very mild excursions into the experimental.
