    Firstly, your songs will need to be heard by President. If we think that there is potential in your music that we can work with, we will contact you to discuss the possibilities around this. If, after our discussions, we still think that working with you and your songs is a possibility, you may be offered a recording deal with our company.

  • 4. I would like to sample a recording which is controlled by President Records Limited. How do I obtain permission to do so, and what is the correct procedure?

    We recognise that sampling is an important part of our business, and we are always open to requests from those who wish to sample one of our tracks. We would require you first to contact us with as many details of your request as possible, i.e.:

    The recording you would like to sample (duration/part(s) of song etc...);
    Any release details that have been planned;
    Other parties that are involved, if any; and
    A recording of the new work.

    We will consider all of the information and then discuss on a more personal level with you the possibilities of the sample being approved. Unfortunately, to protect the integrity of our copyrights, we cannot give any permissions without discussing the intended use with you first.
