Empowering artists and labels is in the DNA of what we do here at Absolute. Our market leading approach supports clients releasing their music in the independent sector whilst allowing them to maintain full control of their copyrights. Our dedicated team is the backbone of our world-class service and we’re currently looking for the newest member of the Absolute family.
