Lots of creative, promising and captivating artists & labels take off with recordJet every day. Each one of them has their own story to tell. Here are a few of our favourite recordJet success stories:
At the end of 2016 Paul (Alice’s manager) landed at recordJet with a hit in his luggage – and none of the major labels had let him on board so far.
Shortly thereafter “No Roots” by the enchanting Alice Merton began to fly high in the charts. Instead of releasing a second single right away, Alice’s team decided, after consultation with recordJet, to join forces and put more effort into “No Roots”.
Reward for confidence in the song soon came:
“No Roots” landed at #2 in Germany, #3 in Austria, #12 in Switzerland and even got to #1 in the singles charts in France. The track reached platinum status in Germany. The following first album “Mint” debuted at #2 in the German album charts.
We are incredibly proud of Alice and happy to welcome her back on board again and again. After all, she’s not interested in putting down any roots and that’s no problem as our jet flies everywhere.
Fynn Kliemann, aka fimbim, started publishing his songs on YouTube and thanks to his diverse formats began to build a similarly diverse fan base. When Four Music became aware of him as a musician and offered him a contract, he refused – and decided to stay his own boss. He then founded his label Two Finger Records and began to produce his album “nie”. In doing so, he dared to do something a little different:
“I’m only going to produce one physical copy of the album as I don’t like wasteful music production and don’t want the record to end up in a bargain bin at a discount store because too many copies were produced”.
A perfect passenger for recordJet. With his debut album, Fynn flew directly to #8 in the German album charts – WITHOUT physical sales being included and completely independently!
Ufo361, who grew up in Kreuzberg/Berlin and became known in the graffiti scene as part of the THC Crew, is a key player in the German hip hop scene! His steep flight to the top of the charts began at recordJet:
in 2016 he released his mixtape “Ich bin ein Berliner”, which, according to Backspin, was one of best in the year, and blew away the competition. With the finest German trap produced by the Broke Boys, big guests like Sido and Bonez MC and his very own style, Ufo361 entered directly into the German album charts.
As a result, he brought out his next mixtape as quick as anything – just six months later – with recordJet and landed at #13 in the album charts with “Ich bin 2 Berliner”. No wonder, because “every beat is clean and of high quality production, each part is well-rapped, the feature guests are well-chosen and deliver it all” (rap.de).
If you have developed grassroots support – particularly without a major label in the background – then why not simply continue to do your own thing regardless? To this end, Ufo361 founded his own label “Stay High”. We are hoping for many more releases – perhaps one day we’ll get “Ich bin 100 Berliner”.
