The most noticeable Intellective Records output is our bi-monthly compilation disc. The "Unbelievably Unsigned" series is international grassroots marketing at its best. The CD is distributed exclusively in bundle packages with existing albums and merchandise sold by the musicians whose tracks appear on the album. Artists benefit from having their music exposed directly to people around the world who purchase and support other independent musician's albums, t-shirts, and DVDs. Music lovers are thrilled because they are exposed to similar up-and-coming talent from around the world.

The compilations themselves are professionally manufactured by DiscMakers. Full color screen-printing on the shrink wrapped cardboard sleeves and on the disc bring professional credibility to the final product. The artists themselves each pay an equal portion of the production costs. They receive equal shares of the finished product.

How it works:

11 selected artists will each have one track featured on the compilation. The packaging will include the song title, artist name, and artist image of each participant. Each artist will receive 100 professionally manufactured copies of the CD to distribute in a bundle with their merchandise as sales come in. It is important that the compilations are not given away. Including the compilation with your CD or t-shirt sales is the most crucial element to the success of this cross-marketing strategy. Each of the artists will benefit by having their music heard by 1000 fans of similar music. This kind of pre-screened audience is just what independent artist need to bolster ticket sales, online CD sales, and digital download sales.

Each compilation CD will be available STREAMING ONLY through www.intellectiverecords.com. Each artist will be given a profile on the web site as well.

The Catch: Intellective Records DOES NOT PROFIT from the compilations. It is a cooperative effort by all of the artists involved. Selected artists will contribute $200 each to cover the cost of manufacturing and the shipment of their 100CDs (roughly $2000 total).

If selected, artists may have to send a CD in the mail, or send a WAV file through email. There is one slot reserved for an artist who will not have to pay the fee but this artist will not receive 100 CDs to distribute. They will just receive 1 CD.
