Electronica Exposed originally focussed on supplying vinyl products to third party distribution companies, which were then sold to retail outlets and web stores. In 2005, Electronica Exposed expanded into CD products and in response to shifting markets, started to self-distribute products and also sell products directly to customers through an inhouse web store, which shipped orders to the UK, USA, Australia, Canada, Japan, Finland, Sweden, Belguim, Germany and many other countries. In 2008, Electronica Exposed expanded further by supplying digital download products directly to third party digital download stores such as Beatport, Junodownload and Trackitdown. As of December 2014, Electronica Exposed has released 129 vinyl products, 66 CD products and 115 digital download products.

In addition to signing ready-to-release music from artists, Electronica Exposed has also worked closely with many artists and our mastering engineer to develop and improve compositions to make them releasable and ensure they met Electronica Exposed's rigorous quality control standards. Electronica Exposed has also licensed music to numerous international third party record labels such as Ministry Of Sound, Nukleuz, React, Resist Music and Masif Entertainment, often helping to develop appropriate contracts and license agreements.

Finally, Electronica Exposed has developed its daily business operations by building a bespoke accounting management system that provides numerous functions including automated artist statements, invoices and taxation reports. Electronica Exposed has also become a paperless business by creating a huge digital archive containing several thousand documents, as well as our audio products in numerous file formats.
