Louder Than Life Records is an independent record label founded in 2013. In July 2013, the American producer Salaam Remi announced that he would be launching the Louder Than Life Imprint through Sony Music Entertainment. The label now operates out of Miami, Florida as a completely independent record label.

Louder Than Life Records has put out releases with artists including: Salaam Remi, Nas, Amy Winehouse's single "Find My Love," Salaam Remi & Gallant's single "Roll The Dice," Anthony Hamilton's "Love Conquers All," Omi's Cheerleader, Salaam Remi & Kat Dahlia's "South Beach Social Club EP," No Panty's "Westside Highway Story" & more.


History[edit | edit source]

Producer/Songwriter Salaam Remi launched Louder Than Life Records initially as an imprint label with Sony Music Entertainment, Inc. in 2013 after having worked as Sony's Executive VP of A&R for 5 years. The imprint was launched along with two subimprints: RemiFa Music and Flying Buddha Records. "Doug Morris has given me a great opportunity to incubate and market artists," Remi states regarding the record label.[1]

On September 30, 2013 Louder Than Life Records released New York: A Love Story with RED Distribution, the debut studio album of American R&B singer Mack Wilds. The album was soon followed with releases including Hiatus Kaiyote's "Tawk Tomahawk" & Liam Bailey's "Definitely NOW"(both of which were released under the Flying Buddha subimprint).

In 2015, the label released the Felix Jaehn vs. Salaam Remi remix to Jamaican singer OMI's Cheerleader with Ultra and Columbia Records. The single charted at #1 on Billboard's Hot 100[2] for 6 weeks.

On June 23, 2014, the label partnered with BET Networks and Red Associated Labels to launch "BET Presents Music Matters Vol. 1," a compilation album series featuring music from Miguel, Big Sean, Mack Wilds, Melanie Fiona, and The Internet.[3]

In 2016, the label released the Do It For The Culture [4] project, a series of songs produced by Salaam Remi which included Come Thru And Chill which is Miguel’s current, Grammy nominated single featuring American rapper J. Cole.[5] The label then went on to collaborate with various collective groups in the following years including: No Panty (Bodega Bamz, Joell Ortiz, Nitty Scott), The Champagne Flutes (Salaam Remi & Terri Walker), and Sex All Summer (Salaam Remi & CJ Hilton).

In 2018, the label released the South Beach Social Club a 4 song EP featuring the collaboration of Salaam Remi & Kat Dahlia.[6] Later that year on November 2, 2018 the label released Love Conquers All [7][8], a song by the Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter Anthony Hamilton.

In 2019, the label reprises Salaam's 2016 "Do It For The Culture" project with "Do It For The Culture 2," a year long project that will feature culturally relevant music. The first release brought together the trio of Salaam Remi, Nas, and the late Amy Winehouse Find My Love [9] which was followed by the Hip-hop/R&B single Roll The Dice by Remi and Gallant.[10]

Today Louder Than Life Records operates out of Miami as a totally independent label.
