“MN2S Distribution is one of the best companies I’ve dealt with. Their attention to your releases is amazing. You don’t get that these days. Whenever something is needed, they’re right on it & get back to your requests immediately. As a label owner, this is what I look for in a distributor, and it’s much appreciated”

“MN2S provide a great service for the label; they’re always on hand to assist with any questions and ensure the smooth delivery of our music.”
“Working with MN2S Label Services has been a very easy process; they make running a record label really easy. Chris is very fluent in all label-related matters; he is quick, there’s usually nothing that I can ask him that he can’t do, and he’s just amazing – very knowledgeable and very up-to-date. The services are excellent, and I don’t think Quantize could be in existence without them. It’s been a pleasure working with MN2S since day one, and I just can’t imagine a better scenario. I’m grateful that we’re still working together for seven years, it’s been an incredible journey”
