HYPED INTERNATIONAL RECORDS

An independent record label & production company established 1991 in Detroit, Michigan.


RECORDED MUSIC + PUBLISHING


Many labels come and go just like the one-hit wonders do, but we've been lucky enough to witness our own evolution from the analog days of vinyls, reels to reels and eight track tapes. With over forty-three years in this business, we've cut and commissioned thousands of records and hundreds of projects in almost every genre of music. Our distinguished catalogues are home to a unique repertoire of award-winning songs and musical compositions that represent the works of underground, independent, rising and Grammy® winning artists alike.


DIGITAL MEDIA + LIVE ENTERTAINMENT


We produce the Hyped Up Live Sessions, a digital concert performance series & music discovery platform launched in 2018. As Michigan's premiere livestream company, we've welcomed more than 100 artists, bands and brands to our HQ in The Russell, Detroit's hub for the artistic discplines. Since debuting, our team has dedicated thousands of hours curating immersive programming while championing the creative community, partnering with local businesses and organizations, and raising funds for pandemic relief.
