Publishing a feature like this is almost like setting ourselves up to get yelled at on the internet. Yes, we probably didn't include one of your favorite indie labels, so let's be clear from the start—this list is absolutely not definitive, it's simply a snapshot of 33 labels that are doing awesome things. As always, we encourage you to do your own digging and share your own favorites with us, but as long as you discovered just one new label, artist, or piece of music that you love from this list, then we did our job.

So, from independent icons like XL Recordings and Warp to niche labels like Dream Catalogue and rising stars like Good Years and WEDIDIT, here are some of our favorite independent labels.
