The Planet ethos has always been that of Music first. Based in Lancashire in the North West of England, and with a repertoire of hand selected boutique titles on an occasional basis. Established in 1988 and now re-emerging after eventually embracing the digital download progression. We are still in the market for limited vinyl and physical CD releases and have just entered into agreement with trustworthy and very credible digital distributor. All titles will now be available to download via Itunes and Amazon, Spotify, Last FM etc- plus other digital outlets. CDs and vinyl can be purchased from our named distributors or directly from ourselves and are directly available from Amazon.


Planet Records was originated by Lancashire musician, impresario / Producer, and MD Adrian (Mel) Melling. With Top 5 album of the year 1995 Q magazine “Michael Chapman, Navigation” and many other titles to the catalogue, the search is on again for emerging talent and re-issue license releases for established Artists. Songwriters are also welcome to submit work for consideration of placement. We also have a partnership with state of the art commercial recording studio Hilltown Studios, located in Colne Lancashire. Established and managed by Keiron Melling (The Fall, Aziz Ibrahim-Stone Roses), the facility houses first class equipment and also boasts the presence of  Engineer/Producer Mat Arnold, former in house engineer at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios.
