Independiente Records formed in 1997, releasing records for seminal artists such as Travis, Embrace, Tinariwen, So Solid Crew, and Martina-Topley Bird. The label has seen a considerable amount of success throughout the late 90's and early 00's with critically acclaimed albums such as "The Man Who" by Travis, which became the 25th biggest selling album in the UK after its release.

The London riots have caused destruction of a warehouse in North London housing many of the UK's independent labels and artists. All the stock has been destroyed in the fire. This will lead to much hardship for the artists and labels affected.
Music fans can show their support for the independent label community, and help them survive this disaster, by buying a digital download of an album from any one of the digital retailers in the UK, as well as going to their local record store whilst stocks last.
This way the labels will be able to remanufacture their CDs and vinyl more quickly, to resupply the record shops who are also affected by the riots.
