label launch

tangential tuesday: Waiting on a Song is the debut release to mark the launch of Easy Eye Sound, Auerbach’s new record label that will feature soon-to-be-announced releases from other artists, and is distributed by Auerbach’s longtime label Nonesuch Records. The new label is built equally around Auerbach’s Easy Eye Studio in Nashville, where The Black Keys recorded their last two albums, as well as the collection of famous session musicians that have come to call the studio home…

Just Hear This and Then I’ll Go by @allwaswell16 (44k)

Former boy band member Louis Tomlinson can’t stand pompous indie artist Harry Styles, but with a new record label to launch he is going to have to endure his pretensions to snag up and coming new artist Liam Payne, who happens to be Harry’s oldest friend. Luckily, Liam seems to be very interested in 78 Records and maybe a little more than interested in Louis’ best friend. Too bad Harry won’t be making this easy on any of them.

what's your favorite trope? and could you rec fics from it?

OOOOOH. I think I have a very soft spot for famous!AU. Like when famous!Louis has a crush for famous!Harry and they start interacting (special kuddos if it’s on Twitter or IG) and then they meet and … Well.  I think it’s my fav

- let me make a thing of cream and stars : It doesn’t explain why he’s lying on the floor, with Harry Styles, of all people, planking on top of him.As in, seventeenth most influential person in London, pop-star-turned-rock-star Harry Styles. The same Harry Styles who has had countless model girlfriends, left, right and centre. Also  the same Harry Styles who has been the subject of Louis’ wet dreams since he was about eighteen.(Or: Louis is a Radio 1 DJ and Harry is a pop-star he interviews.)

- Amazing Sin :  Gears started turning in Louis’ head. Purely mischievous gears that had Louis formulating a revenge plan against Taylor. He’d had enough of sitting around and taking it. If she was going to call him a whore, then fine, he’ll act like one for real. “I’m going to say something, and as my friends you are obligated to love me anyway.”  “This can’t be good,” Niall said, Zayn just groaned.  “So I know we have this strict ‘no lashing back at Taylor’ rule with me, but what if I can get press revenge a different way?” Louis asked. He wasn’t expecting an answer, because they knew by now to just go with it. “What if I stole her boyfriend?”Or, the story of Louis ‘Steal Your Man’ Tomlinson.

- Play Me Like One of Your French Girls : Louis is Hollywood’s ‘Bad Boy and Sometimes Darling’, and Harry is the clumsy, endearingly attractive part-time cellist whose cello gets upgraded to the seat next to his on the plane. They fall in love.Also featuring R&B Superstar Zayn Malik, Olympic Gold Medalist Liam Payne, and Masterchef Niall Horan.

- Just For Me: Harry is a supermodel with a fake boyfriend. Louis is the captain and star forward of Manchester United with a fake girlfriend. They should have no problem having a completely platonic lunch between friends.(They do.)

- Three French Hems: In which Louis is a designer at Burberry and Harry spends December wearing Lanvin… and Lanvin… and Lanvin.

- so grab your passport and my hand: The one in which Louis plays football and Harry sings a lot, and somehow that means they’re meant to be. They’ll figure it out soon enough.

- Foolishly Completely Falling : Louis is ¼ of the infamous boy band One Direction and has had a crush on the Prince of Wales for ages. Prince Harry is gay and out and when he spills on a tv show about finding a certain Louis fit, their paths cross and everything turns into a tumult of emotions and anxiety, and the complications when you just want to show the world who you love.

- walk my days on a wireHarry hums, staring at his hands in his lap, and Louis can still feel their smoothness, how solid they were in between his own. “Do you think it’s the same for us? Are we here only because of the likeliness of our jobs? Of our lives?”
“We’re here because we have inventive managers,” Louis says, giving Harry’s leg a little nudge with his knee, but all that’s going around in his head is, I think I’d be in the same spot in every possible universe.  or, when actor Louis Tomlinson used to daydream about dating Harry Styles, this is not what he had in mind.

- but me, i’m not a gamble : A Posh & Becks AU in which Harry is a star on the stage and Louis is a star on the pitch, but they’re both inexplicably terrible at articulating their feelings. In the end, it only takes a season’s worth of failed matchmaking schemes, platonic dinner dates, road trip holidays, and one very convenient David Beckham cameo for them to figure it all out. And if Niall knew all along? Well, he at least has the decency not to be too smug about it.

- sweet, where you lay  : Louis Tomlinson is a twenty-eight year old succesful actor living in New York. Harry Styles is a twenty year old up and coming model and coincidentally also the one who turns Louis’ world completely upside down.or, Louis is Zachary Quinto and Harry is Miles McMillan. Falling in love was always in the cards for them.

He misses by a mile and tries again, just as ineffectively.Harry looks down at him, at the way the sun streams over his face and shoulders, at the way the gag stretches his mouth, lips pink and chapped. He’s lithe and pretty, smudged all over with dirt. They had found him tied up below deck, mostly unconscious, next to a barrel full of gold. He’s clearly a prisoner, but there’s something familiar about him, something that niggles at Harry’s brain. Something he can’t quite put his finger on.“Put him in my cabin,” Harry decides, turning back to deal with the rest of the loot.

Cover inspiration from this post :)

Lieve Van Gorp spring—summer 1995, autumn—winter 1997—98, spring—summer 1997, autumn—winter 1997—98, spring—summer 1998.

In 1987 Van Gorp left the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Antwerp with a degree in Fashion Design. After various jobs as a stylist for Belgian high street labels, in 1991 she launched her first collection of leather accessories, consisting of belts and bags. Only in March 1995 did she expand into a complete women’s prêt-à-porter collection. Soon after she opened her own shop in Antwerp and, in January 1997, launched a collection for men. During these busy years of development, she also took on a teaching post at her old school. 

In March 1999 she presented her first catwalk show in Paris, for both her women’s and her men’s collections. Her collection for men grows out of the concepts developed for the women’s line. Elements are re-used, almost as an afterthought, which make the men’s collection seem to be a season ‘behind’. 

Lieve Van Gorp’s collections blend icons of Catholicism with rock star cult. This mixture is carefully expressed in the ‘merchandising’, which always accompanies her collections. Posters, pins with skulls, the letter ‘L’, exemplify her universe. True to her statement “In my dreams I’m a rock star, but unfortunatly I can’t sing”, Lieve Van Gorp mentions as sources of inspiration rock ‘n’ roll and country & western music, headstrong women like Madonna, Courtney Love, K.D. Lang, Patsy Cline, Skunk Anansie and Patricia Hearst, and men like Jesus Christ, Che Guevara, Willy De Ville and Elvis Presley. 

Working with diversity within one creation is Lieve Van Gorp’s strength. Emotion and agression, softness and bondage, films versus real life, male and female and everything in-between, conservatism and avant-garde, tradition and innovation, leather, love and trust, Gothic rock and classicism…, all these are parts of the Lieve Van Gorp puzzl

School Disco – “There was absurd, over-the-top hype before it even began.”

by Lauren Cochrane

Although the Raf Simons label was originally launched in autumn/winter 1995, his growing number of fans were treated to five successive seasons of fairly low-key video presentations before the designer finally felt the time was right to put his vision on the runway. It was worth the wait thanks to a show remembered as much for the over-crowding as the clothes.

Indeed, the School Boy collection of autumn/winter 1997 – which Simons now sees as his full-blown fashion industry debut – was a genuine “moment“. Featuring a group of street-cast, non-professional models, and taking place in a defunct discotheque filled with rickety old chairs (for invited industry legends such as Suzy Menkes to perch on precariously), Simons proposed not only an innovative new way for men to dress, but a remarkably fresh type of fashion show, too.

SAKS POTTS

Say what? Saks Potts may not be the easiest name to rattle off, but it definitely is the truest. The eponymous label was launched four years ago taking the namesake of Scandinavian designers Barbara Potts and Catherine Saks. With a fresh vision for hard-core outerwear, unabashedly embracing fur, colour, and innovative geometry, the duo have succeeded in breaking traditional moulds and offer something new to the niche of functional luxury.

What happens when your soul is hopelessly consumed and no matter how hard you try, no matter how hard you attempt to shake yourself out, to rid your tormented mind of the opaque feelings that plague you, all you can see, all you can feel, all you can want is…

Revenge.

Louis was certain that he was done with his tenuous connection with fellow skater, Harry Styles. But then, you know, the universe throws a wrench in all that when Simon takes Harry on for the next season.

Louis is a spy and Harry is a dancer. The only real thing they know is each other.

Former boy band member Louis Tomlinson can’t stand pompous indie artist Harry Styles, but with a new record label to launch he is going to have to endure his pretensions to snag up and coming new artist Liam Payne, who happens to be Harry’s oldest friend.

Interview with Terabyte Co-Founder- Auzi

Although still pretty much in it’s infancy Terabyte has built a strong following and a reputation for quality enviable by even long established labels, how do you think you’ve managed such an achievement so quickly?

Quit with your flattery woman haha! Obviously we have a huge way to go on this project of ours, but we literally couldn’t have gotten to this point without social media platforms. Up to this point our presence is 100% online through our fans on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SoundCloud etc. So we have them to thank on that one. As for quality, again we wouldn’t be able to put out quality material without SoundCloud. We’re pretty picky with our quality control now, which is key. I also think that the quality process is kind of self-fulfilling (without sounding like a twat) -if people hear quality output they’re more likely to be sending over higher quality material. 

Tell us about the beginning,  who owns Terabyte? When was it started? Why was it started? What was the ethos behind the label? Did you always know what style of drum and bass you wanted to specialise in?

Altered Perception and I both founded the label in 201, but we actually first filed as a business in May 2012. The idea cropped up while Sam and I were still at school, once we freed up some time when we got to Uni we got the ball rolling. We DEFINITELY didn’t know what we were after in the beginning- our very first splash page on our website said we were a ‘dnb and dubstep label’- we killed the dubstep idea pretty quickly after things went south. We knew that we wanted to focus on deeper, more industrial sounds, but we both have a keen ear for the more lighter, liquidy vibe- so we try and throw that in every now and then on our 'Liquid Technology’ series. Over the last few years we’ve really begun to hone in on building a family around UK-based up and coming producers, we’re all about grass roots because that’s where we started! We’re beginning to tip our hat to more established artists, the bigger we get the easier that will become, but the main focus will always be a select group of Terabyte Mafiosi.

What has been the biggest challenge in starting up Terabyte?

I’m sure any independent label manager would tell you the biggest challenge they’ve faced is a financial one- you’d be surprised at the amount of services you need to pay for just to get a release through. Once you get it released, everyone knows you earn a pittance off the back of that. Having started as students we didn’t have the capacity to pump money in as much as we’d have liked- which has definitely sucked. We’ve had to grow it from nothing, and we’re finally starting to see the benefits of our output- 3 years later!

What’s been you proudest moment as a label?

Corrrrrr! Hard one. I know that Sam would definitely say the moment we signed a Data track (cats out the bag now- guilty!). As for me- way too many to pick one single moment. When I heard our second release- Tephra’s 'Fade Away’- being played on the beach at Outlook I was chuffed to bits, that was really early on too! Making DJ Mag was probably up there too. I know it sounds really fucking soppy but I’m really proud of everything that we’re doing at the moment, to be able to look back and see how far we’ve come off the back of whatever we could cobble together is really satisfying. Hopefully we can kick on and blow some other labels out the water- that’s our agenda anyway haha.

What labels do you find inspiring? 

So many! Our end of the drum and bass spectrum is really healthy at the moment. The renaissance of Metalheadz is awesome- their output is better than ever right now. Exit, Critical, Different- they’re the ones we’re looking up to. Can’t knock the stuff from Warm Communications, Narratives, Horizons, Symmetry, Subtitles. It would be pretty closed-minded of me to say 'oh i don’t like that label’- if you like drum and bass music it’s the sound that matters, not who made it, or who signed it. I suppose we play off that at Terabyte really- reputation shouldn’t get in the way of what you think is great music.

Do you have a Terabyte favourite release so far?  

I loved the Volatile Cycle release we put out- got great feedback from the dnb community. They’ve moved on to bigger and better things at Renegade Hardware and Invisible, and rightly so. Big ups lads! I also loved the Rowpieces release- that’s done really well. But I actually think my favourite yet is forthcoming- I don’t wanna spoil any more than I have already. Look out for TB020 is all i’m saying.

You have an impressive back catalogue for such a young label, how does A&R work for you guys? What are you looking for and how do you usually find it?

Sam AKA Altered Perception takes care of all the A&R stuff- shouts to Anthony as well when he interned with us- they literally spent all their free time trawling the internet for demos. We pride ourselves on listening to every single demo that comes in to our inbox- and we ALWAYS reply one way or another. If you can’t devote the time to do that to each of the people that take their time to send you stuff over- you’re doing it wrong. An email takes minutes, send enough of them and hopefully you get a reputation for being friendly and approachable, comes back to that family vibe. Ultimately, if you fuck people off, they wont buy your shit. Its not rocket science.

We run a pretty tight ship- both of us have to agree that we like a tune, there are no gimmies either. Anything that Sam or I make has to be given the green light by us both, we wont just slip in our own output if we don’t think it matches the quality of the catalogue. Suppose having 2 people at the helm helps the quality control process, maybe that is the key to our success? Who knows.

You run the label from three cities, how do you find the scene differs from city to city?

God I feel like I could write a thesis on this kind of shit haha. When I was at uni in Brum, the scene was seriously depleted (sorry guys). There were 2/3 main DNB promoters (I’m not counting the countless jump up nights) and the politics between them frankly, was ridiculous. I don’t want to weigh into the politics either, its boring and upsetting for the scene, but the fact they couldn’t settle their differences for the good of the scene has meant it’s in a seriously fragile state up there.

Now I’m back in London I’m not as close to the ground with the promoting circuit, but obviously there’s plenty of choice. Pleased to see mid-week events like Soul In Motion and 20/20 popping up too. Just sad that the bigger clubs are closing rank on their music policy, cough cough ministry cough cough.

I actually think on balance Leeds has the strongest scene in the country. Sam has lived up there for 3+ years now, the scene is so vibrant up there, literally an event a week, with great lineups too! I wish that culture would flood the nation, but a girl can dream hahah. 

What tracks are you feeling at the moment that aren’t on Terabyte? 

Ulterior Motive’s album has killed it - i’m struggling to move forward from it haha. Ivy Lab’s remix of TC’s 'Everything For A Reason’ is pretty fucking badass too. Aside from d'n'b- I’m really feeling 'Piano Weapon’ by Doorly & Shadow Child- at least I was until I heard some hideous vocal edit on YouTube which I assume was (or has been) prepped for the fucking charts. 

What are you planning for 2015?

So much! Literally just had a big meeting about this. Think label nights, merch, EP launches, the works. We’re also really working hard to push into wax- but we all know the perils of the vinyl market.

Obviously you’ll find out more as it comes along- but we’ve never been so excited about what’s round the corner. I’m not just saying that for effect, I genuinely think next year we have potential to start gobbling up the competiton. FINGERS CROSSED

- Not Quite, by @lads-laddylads Niall gives Harry an exasperated look, nodding slowly. “Okay…so do you want to explain why we’re hiring Louis? And do you want to explain it without making any mention of his soft hair or ample buttocks?” As Harry prepares for the premiere of his first blockbuster film, his manager encourages him to hire a bodyguard as a precautionary measure. Harry ends up making an unusual choice.

Luckily, Liam seems to be very interested in 78 Records and maybe a little more than interested in Louis’ best friend. Too bad Harry won’t be making this easy on any of them. Or a modern day Pride and Prejudice–Louis is Elizabeth, Harry is Mr. Darcy, Zayn is Jane, and Liam is Mr. Bingley. Oh, and Niall is Mrs. Bennett. Obviously.

Larry Modern Pride & Prejudice AU (44k) : oohh god it was so goooood. Like so so good. famous Louis and famous Harry hate each others and it means one thing  : ANGRY SEX (bottom Louis). I’m so weak, I have to read it again.

- a fully armed battalion (to remind you of my love) , by MediaWhore :  “He was flirting with you by the way,” Niall says casually once he’s finished saying goodbye to Louis and he’s joined Harry outside.  “No he wasn’t,” Harry replies automatically, feeling his heart clench at the thought. Was he?  Niall simply raises a mocking eyebrow in response before wrapping his scarf twice around his neck.  “Not that it matters!” Harry says quickly, eyes widening. “I wouldn’t care even if he did because he’s awful and the worst.” Everyone at Hogwarts knows that Professor Styles and Professor Tomlinson absolutely despise each other. It’s too bad that they’re in love

Larry Harry Potter Teachers AU hate to love (5k) : cute and funny, no smut. Also fair warning about some very bad poetry :D

- This Wicked Game  , by @cherrystreet : An AU in which The Bachelor is gay, Louis is a contestant, Harry is the bachelor, everyone drinks a lot of champagne, the entire world gets to watch them fall in love, and no one plays by the rules.

Larry Bachelor AU (70k) : PER-FECT. (not too much angst, bottom Louis).

- All The Attention, All These Intentions , by  sweetlullabies : Harry could barely breathe at even the possibility of getting to be Louis Tomlinson’s fake boyfriend.  Louis was his favorite actor since childhood, when Louis was also a child on the big screen. The guy he had always looked up to.  The guy whose poster he used to kiss every night before bed.  The guy whose movies Harry would watch all night until his eyes couldn’t possibly stay open anymore.  Harry was pretty sure Louis Tomlinson wasn’t even real—he couldn’t be.  or the fake relationship au where Harry is an aspiring musician and also Louis’ biggest fan–until he actually meets him.

Larry famous/famous fake relationship AU (120k)  : fair warning : Louis is really a douchebag at first. Seriously you’re gonna want to punch him a lot. But well … it’s working out fine, even if he’s really fucked up. great smut (hello wall sex)(bottom louis and virgin Louis too)

- Salt & Vinegar , by @elsi-bee​  : Louis is ready to experience the local flavour during his next few weeks in beautiful Costa Rica.  So why does the same British boy keep pulling him in?

Larry travel/ Holiday AU (77k) : a one night stand becoming a friends with benefits. Fun and perfect for the summer (kind of share that for the smut)

- Young Gods, by  sincewewereeighteen :  “Why don’t you stay?” Harry looked down at him and snorted. “What?” “You’re not my type, Louis”, the boy rolled his eyes sitting on the edge of the bed to put on his boots. “Says the man you just had sex with”, Louis pointed feeling smart, but Harry was one step ahead of him, with the answer on the tip of his tongue.  “You see, if you were my type, I wouldn’t have”, Harry winked, cheeky as hell. “I would’ve gotten to know you first.” “Bullshit”, he accused the boy not letting it show how intrigued he was. “How can you know I’m not your type if you don’t know me?” “How about I list five things about you to prove I’m right and if any of them are false I’ll lie down again.” “Ok. Go.”[Or: the one in which Louis is a model and Harry’s supposed to be a normal guy… Until he isn’t.]

- through the jungle through the dark  , by  YesIsAWorld: Louis and Harry were best friends, until they weren’t. Five years after they last spoke they’re forced to drive cross-country to visit an injured friend. If they can’t get over the past, it will be a very long week together.

Hi!!! Have you ever read a pride and predjudice larry/ziam fic? If so can you please link it to me? If not still thank you for your fic recs ❤️

YYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSS !!

There’s 2 fics I really really REAALLY love, both amazing  :

- Just Hear This and Then I’ll Go , by @allwaswell16 : Former boy band member Louis Tomlinson can’t stand pompous indie artist Harry Styles, but with a new record label to launch he is going to have to endure his pretensions to snag up and coming new artist Liam Payne, who happens to be Harry’s oldest friend. Luckily, Liam seems to be very interested in 78 Records and maybe a little more than interested in Louis’ best friend. Too bad Harry won’t be making this easy on any of them. Or a modern day Pride and Prejudice–Louis is Elizabeth, Harry is Mr. Darcy, Zayn is Jane, and Liam is Mr. Bingley. Oh, and Niall is Mrs. Bennett. Obviously.    (44k)

- Against His Better Judgement , by @lululawrence : It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. Or a husband. Whatever.The modern Pride and Prejudice AU starring Louis as Elizabeth Bennett, Harry as Mr Darcy, Zayn as Jane/Charlotte, Liam as Mr Bingley, Gemma as Georgiana, and Niall as…..well…Niall. (34k)

I still have to read this :

- the last person on earth i could ever marry  : A Pride and Prejudice AU, where Harry is fed up with rich men and Mr Tomlinson is a very rich man. (50k)

and there’s a WIP :

- Moves and countermoves        : This tale of love unfolds in the England of the late 18th century. The five Tomlinson children - including responsible Zayn and strong-willed Louis - have been raised by their mother with one purpose in life: finding a husband. When a wealthy bachelor takes up residence in a nearby manor, the village is excited. Amongst the man’s sophisticated circle of friends, surely there will be no shortage of suitors for the two eldest Tomlinsons. But when Louis meets the handsome and - it would seem - snobbish Sir Harry Styles, everything he thought he knew may be turned upside down.Or, the Pride and Prejudice AU which may or may not have a lot more sexual content than the original.

Liam Payne Joins Ariana Grande & the Weeknd on Republic Records Roster: Exclusive

10/17/2016 by Gil Kaufman

Nearly 10 months after One Direction went on hiatus, Liam Payne is ready to get back into the game. Republic Records announced on Monday morning (Oct. 17) that Payne has signed to the label in North America, joining a star-packed roster that includes Drake, Ariana Grande and the Weekend, among others.

The label said that Payne will release new music “soon” through an alliance with the Capitol UK label. The singer/songwriter’s manager, Simon Oliveira, said in a statement, “With Republic’s track record of launching powerhouse talent in the U.S. including superstars like Drake, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, The Weeknd, Ariana Grande, Lorde, and countless others, I am more than confident we have assembled the best possible team alongside Capitol’s UK label to launch and shepherd Liam’s solo career.”

Republic co-founder and CEO Monte Lipman added ,“Being a member of the most successful group of the last decade, Liam has a tremendous opportunity to make an even greater impact on pop culture.  We’re honored by LIAM’s decision to join Republic Records, and have extremely high expectations for his solo career.”

News of Payne signing comes a week after fellow 1D member Niall Horan released his first solo track, “This Town.” While Harry Styles has signed an $80 million record deal with Columbia Records, no music has emerged from that pact just yet as Styles has been busy filming the Christopher Nolan war drama Dunkirk. Louis Tomlinson announced plans to start a girl band through Louis imprint on Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment label.
