Have you ever heard of AWAL? They handle distribution for a lot of artists and kind of act like a label to some extent. Check them out: they take submissions as well. Their blog is very under rated to me. They focus on artists/concepts and ventures all over the world. I read it to get an idea of what other artists in other countries are doing. We are so used to the way we do shit in our own cities that we forget the cultures are so different elsewhere. We can soak up that knowledge and really shake shit up here.
