“The INgrooves platform was built with the flexibility to deliver music to retailers in any territory around the world, and these new signings are indicative of the continued growth we expect from labels and artists outside the United States.”

INgrooves Gets Busy on Other Side of the Pond
INgrooves International, the U.K.-based division of INgrooves Fontana, has announced a slew of new label hook-ups, including a long-term distribution deal with renowned U.K. indie Full Time Hobby. Under the new deal, INgrooves International will provide both digital and physical distribution services for Full Time Hobby in North America, giving the label direct access to its market-leading digital distribution platform and a suite of label support services, including INgrooves’ recently launched artist services division.
 
The label’s schedule in 2013 includes albums from The Leisure Society and Tunng, the debut LP from latest signing Seams and a tribute album to Tim Hardin.
 
Full Time Hobby join leading U.K. indie distributors Republic of MusicCode 7 and electronic label Hotflush, in tapping into INgrooves’ expanded international account management team, led by SVP/MD Alex Branson, who had a quote ready for the occasion:
 
“With the addition of the in-house physical distribution capabilities in North America that came with the acquisition of Fontana last year, more U.K. and European labels are turning to INgrooves for their comprehensive distribution needs in North America,” he offered. 
 
Other worldwide distribution deals recently inked by INgrooves International include Berlin dance imprint Boys Noize, dubstep label Circus Records, Central Europe’s drum and bass labels Black Sun Empire and Noisia, Irish indie Small Town America and the soon-to-relaunch Goodlooking, which will make its catalog available digitally for the first time this year.
 
Said INgrooves International Director of Business Development, Quentin Chambers: “We are thrilled to be working with such inspirational labels and artists. Our recent high-profile label signings are testament to INgrooves' growing stature internationally, a reputation being built on our world-class services and distribution of the highest-quality music.”
 
In addition to the new signings, INgrooves celebrated the holidays with the company’s first-ever distributed U.K. Christmas #1 single, “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother” by The Justice Collective
 
INgrooves International has plans to expand into additional territories in 2013, including Germany and Australia, the world’s fourth and seventh largest markets, respectively. 
 
INgrooves President Dave Zierler provided an overview, noting, “The INgrooves platform was built with the flexibility to deliver music to retailers in any territory around the world, and these new signings are indicative of the continued growth we expect from labels and artists outside the United States. Our plan to add personnel resources in Germany and Australia is reflective of our goal to continue to provide expanded services for our partners wherever they are in the world.”
