About | TAMBOURHINOCEROS

We're a Copenhagen-based record label releasing adventurous music by artists we know and love. There's no definite musical profile as such, except from the feeling of artistic necessity and human honesty. Music is what we care about, in every possible way. It's our fountain of ecstasy. There is really no need to hold back.

Please consider to join our newsletter here. That way there's no algorithms or third party companies that can get in the way. You can of course also all find us on platforms like Bandcamp, SpotifyInstagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Soundcloud.

We're proud members of the Merlin network and the Danish indie label trade organisation DUP as we sincerely believe in the power of unity in the independent community. 

Demo submission

If you want to send us demos, please go ahead. We like to hear new sounds. Especially, if they are truly new. We promise to give everything we receive a fair chance as long as submissions take the pointers below into account. 

  • Don't send music that's already publicly available. 

  • Tell us why you're sending your music to us specifically.

  • Having a manager & booking agent helps. If you're just yourself we expect you to be patient and OK with not releasing more than individual tracks before a full team is on board. Similarly, being able to show that you've created a fanbase on your own is a major plus. Not just because it makes our job easier but because it reassures us that you have good understanding of our side of the business. 

  • We work internationally and expect our artists to be willing to invest the time and money it can require to tour internationally.

  • It's always great to be able to influence the final records and how they're presented. So don't worry about not having a final master - we actually prefer to get demos.

  • Our release schedule is usually packed 8-12 months ahead and while it may seem like a long time to wait, it’s what’s needed to do a good job. 

We ONLY accept streaming links (Soundcloud for instance). So please do not email mp3, wav, dropbox-invitation etc. Thanks for understanding. We cannot promise a response to demo submissions. You shouldn’t place much importance on our opinions anyway; our opinion of your music shouldn’t matter nearly as much as your own. If we like something enough to release it, you’ll definitely hear back from us.

Distribution

 

Licensing

For synchronisation and other licensing requests please write an email to us here.

A heads up: We don't license our music for free. There's plenty of reasons - the obvious one being that we'd cannibalise on the livelihood of our artists

Promotion

We do both national Danish and Pan-Scandinavian campaigns through our promotion company Nordic Waves.
