making records making friends since 2004

Totally Gross National Product is an artist-run label founded in Minneapolis, MN by producer/musician Ryan Olson (Gayngs, Polica) and his friends in 2004.  In the past few years, TGNP has earned a much broader audience throughout the US and Europe.  As it's grown into an internationally recognized label, TGNP has premiered singles, videos, and album streams with Fader, Pitchfork, NME, Rolling Stone, NPR Music, Noisey, Brooklyn Vegan, Death & Taxes, and many others. 

TGNP artists have been featured everywhere from the BBC to the New York Times to the Huffington Post; they have been showcased on late night talk shows like Letterman, Colbert and Kimmel; and they have played some of the biggest music festivals in the world like Coachella, Glastonbury, Leeds and many more.  

After 10 years of developing and releasing projects from a wide array of talents, TGNP has settled into a community focused enterprise, with input from a large group of contributors, associates, entrepreneurs, and artists.

TGNP remains committed to releasing the best music we come across.  Stay updated on our release schedule and future happenings on the News page.
