David has is very informative, honest and seeing as though I have no experience in this business that’s definitely a positive! I've just signed a years distribution deal and am still busy recording the first album, so hopefully we can do magical things together, and get my music out there for all to hear. (05.04.19)

Kind, sincere, passionate, transparent and extremely helpful are all traits of David John Duckworth. My replies from David have been detailed, extremely fast and very cooperative - answering all my questions and keeping me informed throughout all of our discussion and introductory period. David is the type of gentleman who goes much further; for in my case, I have been interested in a distribution label with all the qualities that his label possesses, but my interested extended to working with an agent which is something that he generally does not get involved with. However David made numerous calls and attempted to get someone organised for me. Unfortunately he was not able to secure anyone but it was not through a lack of trying. He explained that he even went out of his way to arrange a meeting with a producer on my behalf. Speaking to another artist on his label, he also had great things to say about David and his team at DJD UK GLOBAL MUSIC

Incredibly helpful and patient - would highly recommend: DJD UK Global Music totally exceeded my expectations. I am not too hot on technology and was a little confused as to how to upload my music, but David was extremely helpful and patient and gave me step by step instructions and I was extremely happy with the end result. It is unusual to find someone who is willing to go to so much trouble to help out. I would highly recommend DJD UK Global Music.

John Koudela III (aka jtechno) USA:Electronic Music/Artist

I found David of his DJD UK Global Music through the Electronic Experimental Music & Multimedia Arts group on Facebook. I had written a review of a sample he posted from the artist duo Mrs. Wilson's Mystical Experience from their album: Concerning Works of Hatred and Destruction. That lead me to take a serious look at the services, audio and video work of his company DJD UK Global Music. Consistent through each work I found the kind of qualities I look for that makes each work memorable: crafted mastering with natural spatiality that creates an an enticing and immersive atmosphere, rich sound quality that captures the depth of every nuance including vocal clarity without any loss, aesthetic videography that tells a story and syncs with the music drawing me deeper into the piece and the message through the lyrics, and artwork and images that weave their way into my own memories. I highly recommend DJD UK Global Music services to artists because DJD UK Global Music eases the path through the tough terrain of the music business where artists can be assured to gain the following and success they had hoped from their target audience without giving up any part of their vision.

Mrs Wilson's Mystical Experience. Cheshire. UK:Electronic Duo

Great independent label: We are just about to release our debut album and approached DJD UK Global Music to partner with for this project. It was comforting that David doesn’t just work with anyone and there seems to be an element of quality control in all that he does, and that is reflected in the stable of artists signed to his label. David himself is a lovely chap, professional and always on hand to offer advise or prompt you with whatever you may need to do next to keep your release on track. I also find a degree of comfort in that David himself is a musician and is able to offer a holistic view from both business and artist angles. I would recommend David and his label without hesitation, and look forward to working together on future releases.

Bertel Ólafsson - Ruddin. Iceland:Singer Songwriter Musician

My band, Ruddinn were signed to Davids first label, Lakeland Records Ltd in 2008 - 2010. Our album '2' was distributed by LRL and had good coverage through various e-tail & retail outlets in the UK. Within the hiatus between LRL's passing in 2010 and the birth of DJD UK Global Music in 2017. Ruddinn moved on to another record label, but I still have fond memories of my days with LRL. Bertel.

Some years ago I had the pleasure to work with David John Duckworth releasing a few of my songs through his label Lakeland Records Ltd.

Michael Grieg - Information Control. UK:Electronic Artist.

At Lakeland Records David previously released a track for me on one of his LRL compilation CD's. After receiving the product and on first listen, I thought, this was a cracking album, with a diverse mix of music from around the globe that really impressed me. I was proud to be part of this compilation project. I'm now looking forward to working again with David at DJD UK Global Music with some of my more recent electronic work pretty soon... Feeling Excited. Michael Grieg "Information Control."

Attila Hegedus. Australia:Solo Artist - Musician

My association with David John Duckworth began in 2007 with his record label ‘Lakeland Records Ltd’ releasing my first solo C.D. This was followed by a 'single' release as well as re releasing my old band ‘Augury’s’ first album. During my time with the label (2007-2010) he also included my solo work on a number of promotional compilation albums. Whilst working with David I found him completely professional, with ethics that I had not come across in my many years in the music industry. He was extremely diligent, hardworking and always delivered on all his promises, including up-to-date royalty statements and payments. After a hiatus of some seven years I am once again privileged to work with David, and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him and his company to anyone who wishes a career in the music business.

Richard Bolland. UK:Radio Presenter at Roots & Fusion.

I remember being saddened when the Lakeland Records label ceased business as David’s ear for music helped provide Roots & Fusion with many a song to play. So I am pleased and excited that he is back with DJD UK Global Music, and I am looking forward to continuing to play music on the Show, as provided by David John Duckworth.

"David was the very first person to recognise the uniqueness of the songs of my alter-ego, Flake Brown, when he promoted my song 'Bucketful of Fools' through Lakeland Records. I am very excited at the prospect of working with him in this new project.I know that DJD UK Global Music will be the ideal platform from which my music will be made available to a wider listening public"

"I have been involved as an artist with Lakeland records for distribution with our previous band Augury (lead guitar) (albums Moment of Grace and Bending Twisting Turning), and solo efforts landing on the Lakeland Records Compilation album (Compilation Object 2). I found David really easy to work with (logistics with funds via paypal etc), and he is an utmost professional when it comes to music distribution. I am really looking forward to collaborating again with my new outfit from Melbourne "The McAvaneys" and releasing new material. It is a rarity in this business to work with someone like David and his integrity has shone through 100% of the time. I wish David and his crew at DJD UK Global Music all the very best with the new venture and getting great music from around the world out there"
