Despite the idiocy that comes from Moby’s mouth about all things related to politics, economics, social issues, etc, one thing he does know is music.
And I can (finally!) say I agree with him about something: Big Labels need to adapt or die!
Today’s music doesn’t need the majors. The biggest draw to the labels used to be distribution, but the internet has cut out the middleman (the big labels). Sure, there are other benefits that the majors offer, but is it worth it for a young artist? No. The negatives outweigh any type of benefits you might get from signing your soul away to the big players.
