Why Sell with Hardcore Junglism?
Hardcore Junglism cuts out the middle men – Distributors and record stores and enable you to pick up 50% of profits from the sales of your products. We take no extra storage fee’s or delivery charges what we get from the sale of your product is what is split directly with you!
For example retail with a distributor and the shop takes a cut, Then the distributor takes a cut leaving you the rights holder with the leftovers. With Hardcore Junglism it is a transparent deal with NO hidden costs – We pay all hosting, Delivery, Admin and any other associated fee’s from our split on the sales royalties!
We offer transparent pricing and when compared to other digital retailers we pay higher than any of our competitors:
As of Q4 2014 the following sites paid the following royalties to distributors on average per release:
Itunes (usa) – £0.36p
Itunes (uk) – £0.47p
Itunes (Jap) – £0.43p
Beatport (uk) – £0.38p
Beatport (usa) – £0.28p
Juno Download – £0.51p
*These are the prices paid to distributors – Distributors would then take a cut of this paid royalty
Hardcore Junglism’s exclusive pricing structure enables us to pay out royalties from £0.99 to £1.49 PER SALE direct to the artist which at minimum is double (and in some cases Triple) what you would get from third party distribution after the distribution company has taken a cut.
Join this with the fact that we account and pay monthly rather than each quarter and have no minimum payment threshold you can see how we can achieve better results and higher profits for our artists and labels.
Exclusive or not exclusive?
Digital retail stores are slowly devaluing the price of music by undercutting each other. Distributors do nothing to ensure a minimum pricing level of your product which could mean prices being pushed down to a minimum. With Hardcore Junglism we have a set tiered pricing system which holds the value of your product at a set level which will gain you the rights holder a much higher return.
Exclusive unreleased tracks sold on Hardcore Junglism gain a payment of 1.49 per track sold to the rights holder which is a higher return that what vinyl distributors used to pay per track on vinyl release’s.
On top of this we pay monthly not quarterly which means a much faster turn around of your product to money in your pocket.
Of course there is no need to go exclusive and some labels choose to work with us as well as other on line stores and we are more than happy to work with labels that wish to do so.

We run dedicated promotion campaigns for all new label drops to our promotion network using a combination of Email and social media to ensure that the launch of a new catalog is maximized to the largest audience possible.
Due to other stores taking on huge amounts of stock every week across many genres it is impossible to promote each major release where as we ensure that we schedule releases to gain the maximum exposure.
We also have a dedicated Youtube channel which hits over 6500 plays per month which is monetized with payments split with artists / labels.
