RoD relaunched!

Welcome to a new era of Rize or Demize Records.

Founded by Craig Pinches in 2014, Rize or Demize has been built on a family ethos – which is why we always promote with #RODFamily – everyone who joins us, follows us, believes in us are a part of our family.

Now Jeff McDonald (headRocka, Todd Breed) and Rob Knowles (Terrains, Audio 287) have joined the family and this team of three are running Rize or Demize – bringing new directions and new strengths to the label.

We have some releases in the pipeline that you’re going to love… from hip-hop, rap and urban music – to house and dance – to rock and indie.

But we’re about more than just releasing music. RoD have plans to really make a difference to artists in the UK music scene. We firmly believe in two things; the promotion of talented artists with the right attitude, and that making music is all about enjoyment!

We welcome contact from anyone interested in joining our family – whether you’re an artist looking to join the label, another creative such as a photographer or filmmaker looking to collaborate, or a music fan looking for upcoming artists to follow. Get in touch with us – email
