Get Hip, Inc. is a fully functioning record label and distributor of over 10,000 of the finest titles in independent music. A rarity in this modern world of colossal media conglomerates, Get Hip remains a pioneer of small businesses supplying the coolest record stores and small distributors with the best titles in garage, punk, soul, pop, doo wop and good old rock ’n’ roll. Our grass roots work ethic and genuine passion for quality music has made us a staple in independent music all over the world.
Get Hip is the real deal, created by lovers of music for lovers of music; this is the music business in its purest form. Founded in 1985 by Gregg Kostelich, Michael Kastelic, and Bill von Hagen—all three musicians who wished to release albums by their band the Cynics on their own terms, without the constrictions of a major label, Get Hip Recordings began to release records by local and national acts. Get Hip Recordings has since added bands from all over the world to its roster of rockers and released records on four continents. Get Hip also created the Get Hip Archive Series, dedicated exclusively to reissue classic bands from the 1950s and 1960s—essential to any true rock ’n’ roll collector.
Now led by the persistent and driven Gregg Kostelich -guitarist of the Cynics- and Barbara Garcia-Bernardo, the Get Hip Recordings team continues to release new bands and buy, sell, import and export great music to and from Europe, Japan and America through their warehouse in the North side of Pittsburgh.
Above all it is important to understand what it is that makes Get Hip vital to the modern music business. This company was created by musicians who quite simply adore music. The passion and tenacity with which we approach the music industry is vital to our success. We simply envision people everywhere getting a small taste of that raw rock ’n’ roll we love so much.
