Bedroom Research is a french label created in 2002 by Subjex, Fletch and Deework. It is now managed by Matt Subjex and is releasing a wide range of electronic music with a sharp focus on singularity and originality, plus a pronounced taste for genre crossovers.
From IDM to Skweee, from Experimental to Hip-Hop, Techno to Polka, from Protofractalglitchstep to Scifi-Folk, from Guitar solos to lines of Kickdrums, from your neighbourhood to Alpha Centauri... We love both goofyness and perfection, minimalism and maximalism, tunes made in 2 hours with 1 good idea and 4 samples or tunes made in 10years with modulars and 2000 sounds. We love it dark and hard as much as sweet and funny. We love 4*4, 4*3, 7*13, and 12/(78*0.489 - 4)². We love cool cats and nasty dogs but are less keen on Sheeps. As anyway the purpose of a research is DISCOVERY!
>> DEMO POLICY
If you think we could be interested in releasing your music, please send us your track and follow the following advices.
We listen to everything that is submitted to us. We receive a fair amount of demos so please be patient, we won't fail to come back to you if we have a hook on your stuff. It's possible that we don't get back to you and that we are not in a will to release your music, apologies for that, we truely respect all the efforts people are doing and the interest you have for us, that's just we are often a bit short on time and that we let the tirany of subjectivity rule our decisions. ;)
So, to make it easy for us to get back to you and maximize your chance on being on our 1st class roster:
Put the tracks in an archive (zip or rar), hosted wherever you want (though please avoid online hosting with countdown before download). Make sure your tunes are named : "artistname - trackname" or well tagged, and put a text file in this archive containing your email adress and any info you'd like to add.
Please send stuff that you think is in the vibe of the label (but surprise us !), tracks you are proud of. Don't send out stuff just so we review it, we don't really have time for this sorry ;)
Thanks again for loving BedroomResearch, we love you too !
>> WE ARE ALSO LOOKING FOR GRAPHIC DESIGNERS !
You make graphic design and/or video editing and you are good at it, you love this music and would be happy to help/collaborate?
Please send a link to your work and we will come back to you ASAP! :)
>> CREATIVE COMMONS? LICENSING? PUBLISHING? FILE SHARING?
The fact we release this music for free doesn't mean we don't care or that you could do everything with it. You are free to download it, pass it to your friends, post it everywhere you want, you can broadcast on your podcast, webradio or whatever.
If you love BR so much that you would like to donate a trillion euros, but you are broke ATM, and you feel guilty getting that much for free... No biggie, instead just help us spread the word: repost, tweet, review, push to friends, etc... This is at least as valuable as your money! :) THANK YOU!!
That said, you are not allowed to use it for commercial purpose without FIRST getting in touch with us. Depending on your project it will be free, not free or not authorized at all (we dont wanna promote crap ideas with our music, or being misused by uncaring licensers/publishers).
We are cool people, if you are not sure just send an email using the contact form, we will discuss the details.
Don't just make as if you didn't know or as if you can't contact us like some disgraceful tv broadcasters already did for exemple...our troopers will find you and kill you! Please be as fair as we are and we will all be happy. :)
