We pride ourselves on helping our artists and label in obtaining the best deal possible for their release’s and helping to ensure the best possible exploitation of their catalogs. Don’t just take our word for it why not see what our artists say about us for yourself……
Why sell with Hardcore Junglism?
Hardcore Junglism cuts out the middle men from the supply chain and enables you the rights holder 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 in a standard multiple shop retail deal with a standard music 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 – You sell on our site, We pay all hosting, Delivery, Admin and any other associated fee’s from OUR PERCENTAGE on the sales royalties leaving you free to collect a royalty rate of up to three times higher than what you would get from certain download stores after fee’s and distribution costs!
Price comparison showing our payment rate on a exclusive release comparing average payment royalty from other stores on a single download after costs paid in GBP:
Also note that the above quoted prices for other stores is the royalty amount they pay to distributors directly before distribution costs are deducted – Distributors would then take a cut of this paid royalty before accounting to you the label.
Hardcore Junglism’s exclusive content 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 non 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 and remember that’s the royalty price we actually pay to the label per each unit sold on our site with no hidden charges or costs deducted.
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 do how ever price non exclusive content lower that non exclusive content – Please feel free to get in touch for more info via our contact page.

We will also prepare artwork for you at no cost to the label**. We do not charge labels and artists for Hosting, Delivery, Storage or any other business costs and no deductions will be made from royalty payments at all.
