Did you earn something off your (unreleased) works?

Are you able to monetize your remixes though or is it just the original works?

You have the option to monetize anything but then it depends if it gets blocked through copyright.

But my main point here is about labels...arnt they suppose to help and support artists and not deny them money or any reward for years and years? Imagine this happening in the pop world...

I'm sure labels have costs too. Mastering, marketing, percentage that stores take, tax etc...and even then they don't really earn much (I think). I believe that this is at least how they can stay afloat. And they are doing you a favour by releasing your tracks, not the other way around. It's not so black & white.

Money isn't in releasing music anyways (especially in small scenes), we know that. But now there's Bandcamp, Patreon and the whole WWW, so producers can get creative in how they share their music with the rest of the world and get some money for it.

Yeah,why do you think i went to Bandcamp. Its just the way these labels set thresholds high so they never have to pay most of the artists - no wonder more producers are going to Bandcamp and self releases.
