SMC Recordings Announces Historical Fiscal Numbers Worldwide

November Sales Show Explosive Growth

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - December 10, 2009) - SMC Recordings Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SMCE) Expanding off the momentum generated by rap legend Rakim's album, "The Seventh Seal," SMC Recordings, the independent record label from the San Francisco Bay Area, today announced November as their largest fiscal month to date, with a reported $748,500 in gross billing.

November's record-breaking numbers are attributed to a strong release schedule. The label's biggest selling acts in 2009, in addition to Rakim, include The Jacka and Killer Mike, increasing SMC's numbers by an astonishing 360 percent from last November. The company's latest distribution alliances overseas and exciting digital partnerships augmented overall brand awareness by making its products more accessible globally. "SMC's visibility and credibility has strengthened so much this past year to the point where mass merchants like Walmart, Target and digital merchants such as iTunes and Amazon know that to be in the loop with their music customers, titles from SMC must be in their product assortments," says sales director, Fred McKendree.

With 2010 right around the corner, SMC shows no signs of slowing down. "We're excited about the tremendous progress we are currently making," says co-founder and CEO Ralph Tashjian. "2010 will be our biggest year yet as we prepare to work with more caliber acts and further expand our network into new territories including South America."
