Just an aside, but from where I sit, Ninja Tune is NOT a small label. By
small I mean people like Hertz, Hospital, Catskills, Memphis, People,
Bitasweet, Twenty Something, Beat Service, Couch, etc. Those labels are all
run by 4 or less people (most are just one or two people) and don't have a
ton of releases out... Ninja Tune with offices in 2 countries, lots of
releases, and a much larger staff is HUGE in comparison.

Subject: RE: promo material
Maybe a better bet would be to figure out which labels you would like the
promo's from. Find out who is the distributer or promotions company
involved w/ those labels. If the labels you like have a promotions company
you should be able to get you paws on quite a bit of stuff...but they'll,
the promotions co., will most likely want you to either review the record or
tell them how much and where you played it and if the kiddies liked it. An
example of one of these companies would be Triage, who I happen to do some
work for (shamless plug ;). We work w/ alot of small labels, one of which
is Ninja Tune, and send their promo stuff all over the country... hope that
helps in some small way
