Our primary mission is to locate previously lost and/or unproduced studio, live-venue sound-booth or sound-desk quality master tapes of popular local, regional, national or international 60’s, 70’s & 80s bands, and release them globally.
These tapes were made on anything from high-end multi-channel studio equipment to portable pro/am reel-to-reel multi-track tape recorders, or top-end cassette recorders off the sound-desk, by the bands themselves at practice sessions, or by sound engineers and crew in the studio or at popular dance and concert venues, with or without permission from the bands.
The tapes we are looking for have been lingering in personal collections, boxes, closets, garages and storage facilities for 30+ years.
It is our mission to liberate these tapes from their places of imprisonment and release them for the world to enjoy.
With the public and music industry insiders help, we track down these tapes, digitally remaster them to discover what’s on them, then globally release each performance digitally and on CD if demand requires it, with the proper permissions, rights and royalty payments. We do not deal in audience bootlegs, we only deal with semi-pro or professional quality audio recordings.
So if you or a family member, or someone you know, was a sound engineer in the studio or at a popular dance or concert venues in the 60s, 70s or 80s, it is now time for you to act.
Dust off those tapes, contact that person you know, or get the word out about what we are looking for.
When you have some solid information about one or more tapes, email LosTraxx Records at "firstname.lastname@example.org" with all your contact information, and tell us all about them in excruciating detail, the more detail you include, the easier it will be for us to determine if you have found something we would be interested in.
We enter into a thoroughly modern distribution agreement with the owners of the tapes and performers, heavily weighted in favor of the master owners and performers, as long as the tapes were originally recorded on reel-to-reel, or high-end cassette, that they are in good enough condition to be digitally transferred,* are of semi-pro audio quality or better.
Our geographic interests are Australia, New Zealand, UK, USA and Canada. If you are outside of these countries, but still have tapes of bands popular in our target geographies, by all means contact us, we will be more than happy to discuss what you have.

*Reel-to-Reel tape is not the best medium for long-term storage in uncontrolled conditions. Some tape can actually be destroyed by a single pass through a tape recorder used to digitize the tape, or to just play it one more time. Any tape supplied to LosTraxx Records for the purpose of digital transfer to evaluate its contents, will be handled in the most cautious and professional way possible, that may include some preconditioning to dry out the magnetic binder material and make the tape more transfer-equipment friendly before the digital transfer. As there is always a risk of destroying the tape during the digital transfer process, LosTraxx will not guarantee any payments of any kind in relation to a tape, until a digital transfer is complete and the content is determined to be of such quality and subject matter that meets the needs of LosTraxx Records. No exceptions. Sorry.
