Q: WHO ARE YOU / WHAT IS THIS?
A: I’m Ramon Roberto T. Nario. I live in Quezon City, Philippines and produce music as a hobby, but also as a freelancer. I’m also a not-exactly-high-class programmer — still learning the ropes, so to speak. LEAF XCEED Music Division was formerly my alias as an online composer/remixer, but it has since been converted into a weblabel to handle not only my different genres of compositions but also other artists who are part of the roster.
Q: WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT THIS LABEL?
A: Its style and purpose. The main goal of this weblabel, unlike traditional ones, is more focused on but not limited to the promotion of free music of a select variety, mostly video game remixes, video game music and original compositions inspired by video games. It is more homemade than it is official — I don’t produce physical copies of CDs, nor have copyrights registered and instead utilize licenses such as Creative Commons. People don’t pay to be here, and everybody helps each other make a name for themselves while being able to express fully their music for the sake of music, expression and enjoyment — without all the fuss and pressure of actual record labels. It’s as laid-back as it can get, which gives one all the time to truly create, appreciate and enjoy music in its purest and most natural forms.
Q: HOW CAN I JOIN YOUR LABEL?
A: As of now, I cannot answer this question concretely. There’s no sign-up sheet process for this yet but I may or may not create one in the future. A special weblabel does require special requirements to be accepted, but the artist roster ( excluding myself ) is comprised mostly of friends with whom I see I’ll be able to develop progressive, working, long-term relationships with. The simple version of that is, if you’re a good person, your music impresses me and you understand this weblabel’s vision, I’ll be more than welcome to have you aboard.
Q: CAN I ASK YOU SOME MORE QUESTIONS?
A: If you want to know more about or get in contact with me, then you can always visit my personal blog and LEAF XCEED Music Division’s former headquarters, rtnario HQ. The About page has my e-mail.
