ropeadope began in 1999 for the purpose of releasing one record from DJ Logic, and his unique instrumentation on the turntable was an immediate hit with a young audience. And so the bar was set as the label continued with unique genre bending and blending sounds from The Philadelphia Experiment, Tin Hat Trio, spanish harlem orchestra, and more. despite the challenges of the game ropeadope perservered, always a home for artists who follow only their creative vision.
today ropeadope is home to hundreds of independent musicians; leaders like Eddie Palmieri, ramsey lewis, christian scott atunde adjuah and terrace martin. yet the label continues the path of signing unknown artists with vision, perhaps the most notable is a band called snarky puppy who went from a small audience to the grammy stage. the music is diverse, over 4000 tracks with something for any palette. the demographic is fresh - 70% under the age of 35, 35% under 25. the mission is in full force as ropeadope stands for independent artists in a competitive world.
