What made you want to start your own label? What are the benefits and challenges that have come along with running your own career as well as a label?
When I started Madox Records, I wanted to do something better than other labels of our caliber. So I made a professional webpage, radio show, artwork for each release, and I help promote our artists to organically grow their fanbase.
Some of the benefits I've seen from Madox Records was the ability to get in touch with a lot of huge producers. We've got a fantastic team with a lot of love for our project. They each take a lot of time out of their day to put in the hard work to do what needs to be done. Right now, we're in the process of optimizing our website and demo system as well as launching Madox Radio. With all of our hard work, we've gotten to see artists which started on Madox Records signing tracks on Revealed Recordings. I personally want to thank NOR3 (Norman Meier) for his work on Madox because he has executed a lot of ideas, and I couldn't have made them a reality without him.
What are some of your goals for the future of Stephan Tosh & Madox Records?
My personal dream is to play at big clubs around the world and a collaboration with REGGIO. For Madox Records, the goal is to release content by big artists like TWIIG, Mountblaq, and Swede Dreams. We're also aiming to start our own label night and bring some of our artists out to perform. We have made a sub-label called Madox Network to release underrated tracks from small artists which didn't achieve the quality standard for a Madox Records release. We want to make sure to open our doors to everyone. Beyond this, we will have a hard dance sub-label as well as one for pop music. There are many things that have been set in motion for 2019 so be sure to keep an eye out for what we've got coming up!
A huge thank you to Stephan Tosh for answering our questions. Be sure to check him out as well as his label, Madox Records.
