Hire me for your A&R department and I'll bring you the hits. I am the next great A&R ear. Hire me and you'll see the hits rolling in & out! I can bring hit records to any major label that hires me! I am the next "Guy Oseary", "Danny Goldberg", "Doug Morris", "Craig Kallman", "Jason Flom", "Jay Boberg", "Stauss Zelnick", and "Michael Goldstone" to any label that hires me. Danny Goldberg is my hero who was hired as VP A&R at Warners at 24 years old. All of them were hired at young ages to be A&R and have gone onto great success. I have a passion for music, an ear for talent, and the drive for success.

The DiDias run the place! Marc, Pres, Kenny, Alt.Radio, and Nick, producer of bands. Are there more DiDias I don't know about? They have some of the most rocking ad copies for their SLAYER release: 'an album of hard-core punk covers that kick like a hanged man.' George Drakoulis, studio whiz at American, produces many great albums for his and other labels ranging from punk, metal, folk, to traditional Pakistani music. Marc DiDia has very close resemblance to the Flamenco/Spanish guitarist for the John Tesch orchestra ... hmmm. does anybody know?

Record Labels (Record Companies) Directory

These record labels' releases are hi-fi LPs and CDs which have a full stereophonic sound. They are usually recorded with two microphones, "dummy head" microphones, or remastered from original recordings. Their LPs are heavy 180-200 gram "virgin" vinyl. Some of the LPs are 12" and 45rpm for better sound. Their CDs are 24-karat gold plated for durability with fancy jewel cases, though those are cosmetics that needlessly drive up costs. Some of the CDs are HDCD, 24bit/96k, SACD, or DVD-Audio. Discs mastered to Sony's SBM, HDCD, or JVC's XRCD sound much better than standard masterings. They use first generation two-track orginal masters in their digital transfer which are transfered using use the highest standard equipment for digitally remastering directly to digital without any further sonic manipulation. Unlike "pop"-recordings put out by major record labels, these are not compressed/equalized for mass-consumer grade stereos or for "radio" (practically mono). These recordings maintain the full dynamics of the music. These recording have full 3-D soundscapes where each instrument is distinct in a seperate section of the soundstage. If you have a favorite album, I recommend buying a reissued audiophile recording of it to hear it to it's fullest potential. Please see my "Entertainment Industry" and "Audio" webpages for more information on the best mastering processes.
