Matt Abbott

Director & Co-founder

Founded 2007

Label Worx is the world’s largest digital distributor of Dance & Electronic music to iTunes, Beatport, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play and more.

 

Being based at the C4Di in Hull has allowed us to expand rapidly as the rent, living costs and wages are considerably less than they would be if we were operating from London.

 

Instead, we’ve been able to invest in well experienced staff, system developments and cutting edge technology to ensure our business is the best it can be.

 

Operating from the heart of Hull strengthens our company, allowing us to grow faster than other businesses with far higher operating costs.
