In 2004 the Company started a boutique label, manufacturing its performers recorded work for distribution in store via selected distributors in UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Benelux, India, Poland, Turkey and Scandinavia operating on a profit share basis with its performers.
To overcome the current difficulties of releasing recordings into the retail market, Mintaka has set up arrangements with the following –
- UK, Ireland – ProperNote
- France – Harmonia Mundi/MDC
- Benelux – Challenge
- Germany/Austria/Switzerland – Challenge
- Italy – Family Affair
- Poland – Gigi
- Turkey – Equinox
- Scandinavia – Border
- India – Times of India
- Japan – Tambourine
Other territories can be added as needs arise. Our ethos is to provide a service with a 50% income share to our performers after recoup of costs incurred.
Performers are invited to share in the investment required to launch the record. Investors also share in profits.
