Our digital content services include, but are not limited to: on-line digital download sales, ringtone sales, in-store entertainment, in-flight entertainment (including first class, business class & club class lounges) and music licensing to third parties.
Our core activity is about delivering our artists’ music to the public. Our entrepreneurial drive is the foundation for this core activity. It enables us to identify, develop and pursue traditional and new avenues to achieve this. Increasingly, this means not only selling our music direct to the public...but striking deals with businesses who provide music and video entertainment and/or content to the public. And this we do very, very well.
The traditional record label business model is broken. We think the model we've come up is pretty darn good. It certainly works for us. So while major labels try to fix something that they broke (or at the very least they try to dress an old dinosaur in new outfits) – we’re created something that’s bold and different.
That’s the benefit of being an independent label. We’re quick. We know how to manoeuvre. And we know how to quickly adapt to an ever-changing music buying landscape. Size does indeed matter. But not in quite the way major labels think. We listen (we really do!), we learn, we adapt and we grow from strength to strength. We've built relationships with many of the top digital content business companies around the globe as a result; relationships that are transparent, open, honest and long lasting.
We won't treat you like you're lucky to have our music. We won’t treat you or your business like we’re doing you a favour. We’ll treat you with respect. That’s how we roll.Read More

Aardvark Records has quickly built a name for itself in the international music catalogue licensing arena. Part of Aardvark's success in this arena is in the relationships it enjoys within the music industry and with parties interested in maximizing the value from back catalogues (e.g. compilation cd producers). Another factor in our success is our staff.
We also work with artists with their own back catalogue.Read More
Chairman Andrew Reeve (ex-EMI) founded Aardvark Records in 1999. His initial vision was to champion bands based in Cornwall. In those days, to say that Cornwall wasn’t on the music industry’s radar would be kind. While the UK was indifferent, his belief and ceaseless efforts began to bear fruit in Europe…and caught the attention of Alex di Savoia in London.
Alex joined the Aardvark team in 2003, first as Head of Marketing, progressing to Managing Director (2005) and then to CEO (2009). With over 20 years of marketing, promotion and public affairs experience gained from years in the FMCG advertising, fashion PR and band management arenas, Alex saw the potential hidden within the label…and quickly set about turning that vision into reality.Read More
