Working together.

Records Gramophonique is an international music company founded in 2014. We are specialized in producing French music. As a record company, our role is to bring networks and people together to let the artist flourish.
Often an artist already has a good network on its own, so in practice it is our task to bring these people together and to present structure, while coordinating.

Remarkably often, we encounter artists who tend to just think of music. This is understandable, but as a result however, they forget to think about how this music can be packaged and exploited. The decoration of their music, which we consider as a product, seems to be overlooked.
In todays world, we believe that good music isn’t enough, there has to be a plan. After all, with exception, it is the frame that sells the canvas.

Records Gramophonique sees the artist as an entrepreneur and proposes a collaboration in which we work together as a team. This keeps the artist equally in control, so that creativity can remain unrestrained, while building solid ground for a rich career.

French culture and its music have long played an important role throughout the entire world. Not only in France had French singers cult state. It’s easy to name a few who were iconic throughout the world: Charles Aznavour, Serge Gainsbourg, Jacques Brel, Brigitte Bardot. But also more recently like Daft Punk, David Guetta and the young Stromae.
The French language is a world language that appeals to many, inspires many artists, comforts passionates and produces lots of (new) artists, who all want to express their message in French. An incredibly rich language with beautiful accents and ideally suited for singing in all kind of genres.

Records Gramophonique presents selected international artists, who all have been inspired by this. The label can be considered as unique, having its headquarters in Holland.
