Hello everyone, as the title of this thread suggests, I wanted to know if independent record labels put out music that suffers from the loudness wars. I am a fan of hip-hop music from the late 70's close to when it originated, all the way to the early 90's and I have meant to look into underground hip-hop for a while now but I haven't because I wanted to ask this question first. I don't even want to waste my time looking into underground music if the music has low dynamic range. Obviously though, there can be music that has good dynamic range, but still sounds bad. So, I wanted to know if independent record labels did other things well too, like recording etcetera. I know that really minor independent record labels may not have very good gear but I was wondering if maybe some of the more successful independent labels did. Can anyone help me? Also, I have made a poll as well . . . don't forget to answer that.
