An independent, pioneering and committed label

With a multicolored catalog, ears open on all styles, Yotanka Records has been committed for a decade to best accompany the French and international scene. Artistic diversity and open-mindedness: pillars for a free and responsible independent label, committed to the planet and gender equality, and attached to its Grand-Ouest region.

In a world of uniformity and statistics, Nantes is looking elsewhere, towards artists combining efficiency, quality and authenticity. A balancing act leaving room for projects in development (Stéfi Celma, damlif, BIRRD, Grégoire Jokic, Makoto San...) as well as phenomenal successes (the hit «Moon» of Kid Francescoli, already a carton before its explosion on TikTok) and to leading artists of the catalogue (H-Burns, EMEL, Yan Wagner, Zinée, Zenzile, Lo'Jo...) but also international projects: the South African rapper Dope St Jude, the Kenyan queen Muthoni Drummer Queen, the Inuit poet Elisapie, the Québecois.es Louis-Jean Cormier and Salomé Leclerc, the Swiss rockers from Puts Marie or the Belgians from BRNS…

Commitments

The members of Yotanka are all animated for years by an ecological consciousness. In the face of global warming and mass pollution, we have made commitments to reduce our carbon footprint. 

Some of our measures include:

Select disc manufacturers near warehouses

  • Yotanka commits to the protection of oceans and coasts by donating €1 on every vinyl order to the Surfrider Foundation

  • Manufacture vinyl from recycled raw materials as soon as possible

  • Design our CDs using cardboard Digisleeve

  • Select disc manufacturers near warehouses
