Wax Poetics and Tracklib found each other in a mutual celebration of record digging culture. With that said, Tracklib cares about the full chain of music: original artists, musicians, producers, and labels alike—everyone benefits. Royalty-fair, not royalty-free.
A large part of Tracklib’s catalog can’t be found on any streaming services—or even Discogs, for that matter. With rare material such as previously unreleased studio sessions by Isaac Hayes, multitracks from the Philly Groove Records archives, a wide range of (UK and Italian) library music and Bollywood recordings, and a whole lot more ranging from kwaito to bossa nova, Tracklib strives to let producers dig as deep as it gets.
Their growing catalog includes releases from over 400 record labels and publishers from all over the world – from an independent Hawaiian reissue label like Aloha Got Soul to the world’s oldest catalog of music from China, to large legacy catalogs.
