And what news can you anticipate for 2024?
Our focus in 2023 was on releasing our own content. Moving into 2024, our aim is to expand our reach, collaborating with other labels (soon we will release on Razor n Tape, for exemple). Additionally, we’re keen on exploring talents globally, not limiting ourselves to just Brazilian artists.
