Rude Records is an independent record label based in Europe with global distribution and a team in US, the UK, Australia, Japan and Asia. Distributed worldwide.

Founded in 2000, it currently counts a total catalogue of over 150 releases, and has been developing its own growing roster of international artists during the past decades. Rude Records also represents a selection of alternative US labels in Europe.

Rude Records manages all functions of a typical record label internally (A&R / talent scouting, marketing / PR / communications, royalties management) and has direct worldwide physical distribution deals; Rude Records is digitally distributed worldwide by The Orchard, the main global independent digital aggregator, recently acquired by Sony Music.

Rudenetworks, Rude Record’s parent company, is also a music publisher.
