CCBB was founded in 2007 as a release platform for music made by Pétur and his circle of friends, some of which had been lying around on people´s hard drives for years. Tings got off to a slow start and after the first few titles had been pressed, shipped and distributed along conventional means, they decided that this wasn´t the way to go. Its focus is now purely on the digital music market, helping out with the actual recording process and marketing through social media.


CCBB believes the role of record labels is changing for the better. It is true that in the digital era, artists control their own destiny and don´t really have to rely on a label to release, promote and distribute their music anymore. With some internet savvy, they can create a strong online presence but maintaining that presence and the fan buzz needed to keep the ball in the air is hard work. Labels are thus slowly turning to management, sharing the workload, freeing up time for the artist to actually focus on their art.


Having had the bad experience to build on (members of CCBB having signed contracts with disastrous results in the past) they are setting out to become the label they always wanted to be part of themselves. Tey believe that the best thing for labels is to have few artists and tend to them well, help them out by booking gigs, being transparent with sales and educate the artists on how to reach their fans and being visible on the internet. Every contract they make with artists can be terminated within 30 days; such is the belief in teamwork and a healthy working relationship.


Despite being digital, Ching Ching Bling Bling is organic (digital copies make no carbon footprints!), warm blooded, full of love and a firm believer that music and art actively shape and change the reality we live in. http://www.chingchingblingbling.com
