ropeadope is an independent record label known for unique recordings that push genre boundaries. many of our artists are accomplished jazz musicians that stretch out with their solo projects as we allow them to create freely. the ropeadope catalog is over 3500 tracks deep, with new records arriving every week. terrace martin, christian Scott atunde Adjuah, king britt, and eddie palmieri are a few of the well known names. 

placements of ropeadope music include blackberry, nintendo (wii fit), miami vice, true blood, ballers, shades of blue, nfl football, and fifa. 

our catalog is growing with a wave of new artists - progressive artists including nate smith, javier Santiago, dustlights, Tosin aribisala, troker and more - as well as new styles from our imprints - lindsey webster, chantae cann, Ghost-Note, doobie Powell, and more. the imprint system gives us a range of new music in soul/r&b, reggae, brazilian, hip-hop, and pop.

all considerations are fielded by ceo louis marks, who handles all a&r and is intimately familiar with the catalog. our responses are focused and quick, and most of the tracks are easily cleared on both sides in house. our artists are eager to place music, many are also available for composition of new music as well.
