Your box is empty.

You should definitely do something about that.

Kudos Records Ltd was founded in 1992 to provide efficient and effective distribution services to independent record labels. We bridge the gap between the traditional label and distributor by providing physical and digital distribution, manufacturing and marketing services to like-minded labels, along with a collective brand identity indicating the highest quality.

Physical Distribution.
Our network of UK and international retailers, distributors, and wholesalers can provide a truly international reach for our releases. We also represent our releases at National Accounts level to the major UK chains and web-stores, including HMV and Amazon.

Many of our overseas distributors can also provide local marketing support, from press servicing and co-op advertising through to tour co-ordination.

Digital Distribution
Kudos are an official supply and technology partner for numerous digital services, including iTunes, Spotify, Boomkat, Bleep, Beatport, Google Play, Amazon, Rdio, Napster, Deezer, 7Digital, eMusic and more. Details of digital services can be found at We provide efficient encoding and delivery systems using our own, in-house technology, so we have complete control of our digital supply chain.

E-Commerce and Mail Order
Kudos are the only UK distributor to offer a complete E-Commerce and mail order fulfillment service as part of a standard distribution package.

Kudos can provide a complete manufacturing service for all formats. In fact, over 60% of our distributed labels manufacture with us.

Our Approach

We are curatorial
We are a music company first and foremost. We believe that our greatest asset is the trust retailers and digital music services place in our A&R abilities. While much of our A&R criteria comes down to whether or not we believe in the music itself, we also consider whether a prospective label can illustrate that they understand how to effectively market their releases.

We are pro-active
We take a very pro-active approach to sales and marketing. All physical and digital retailers have a dedicated Kudos account manager, who's job it is to ensure all our releases are appropriately represented in both retail spaces. We work only on commission. Our standard agreement includes no delivery, encoding or storage charges. So, if we don't sell your music, we don't earn. Simple.

We are transparent
We believe that transparency is key to ensuring we provide the best possible distribution service. We have an unblemished record of prompt, accurate and transparent accounting. All statements and sales data are available on line through our secure label portal, along with recharge invoices and remittance information.

Distribution terms are only discussed on acceptance of your releases. If you would like us to consider your label please send your proposed releases and game plan to:
