We have been providing artists with our expertise as a label for over 10 years. We design cover artwork, release recordings and distribute it on all major music services such as Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube, Amazon and many others. The publishing process involves many steps: signing a licensing agreement, editing metadata, assigning ISRCs and UPC/EAN-13 codes, creating appropriate cover artwork, and distributing the album to music services worldwide.

Do you need a label to release an album?

Yes and no. Record labels used to be the gatekeepers of the music industry. That made it almost mandatory to seek A&R if you wanted to release your music. With so many online distributors, often referred to as aggregators, the fastest and easiest way to get your music out on music streaming platforms is undoubtedly self-publishing.

A successful release is not just about throwing your music on the streaming platforms and hoping for the best. You need to make the audience aware of your music. 

Oclassica can help you make your music visible to the audience. We can put your tracks into dozens of different compilation albums. The more compilation albums that contain your track, the more streams and listeners you will get. Self-publishing with digital distributors does not offer this opportunity.

What repertoire do we accept to release on the label?

Oclassica is a data-driven music record label. This means that we rely on data and research to determine what repertoire is most in demand on music streaming services. We work with classical music, classical crossover, and various instrumental music. If you are only planning to record an album, we recommend that you contact us with demo recordings. Then together we can choose the right repertoire for your planned album. If you already have a professional quality recording, we would be happy to consider it for release and give you our feedback.


How to release an album

Record labels with back catalogs and artists who own master rights for their recordings.

We will get your music into Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Tidal, Deezer, plus a ton of other stores and streaming services.

We suggest to submit audio recordings of high resolution sound quality. There is no single standard for high-resolution audio formats, but we recommend recording audio in the two most commonly used formats: WAV 24-bit / 96 kHz (3.2 times better than CD) and WAV 24-bit / 192 kHz (6.5 times better than CD). Modern studio equipment usually supports these formats. The minimum acceptable quality of audio files corresponds to the usual quality of CD: WAV 16 bit / 44.1kHz.

In general we work with instrumental solo and orchestral music of classical genre.

We can increase the visibility of artists by including their tracks in dozens of compilations and increase the audience reach for the artists' tracks. Artists also benefit from the label's expertise.

We can bring your music catalog back to light by increasing its value and revenue through bespoke compilation products.
