INgrooves Music Group Expands Physical Distribution Outside Of North America

Bookmark and Share

INgrooves Music Group, one of the largest, truly independent distribution companies in the global label services marketplace, announced that the company has deepened its relationship with U.K.-based Republic of Music (ROM), who will continue to partner with the Company on their physical distribution needs in territories outside of North America, including the U.K., Europe, Asia and Australia. Under the new deal, INgrooves will integrate a number of its employees with Republic of Music where they will have direct relationships with ROM's network of local distributors around the world. In addition, INgrooves is adding personnel in its London office to oversee physical production. The first release under the new deal is a brand new album by longtime INgrooves client, Thievery Corporation.

"We've worked closely with Republic of Music for more than a year now, and our partnership has already paid major dividends for our label clients," said Alex Branson, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of International for INgrooves. "This new relationship will enable INgrooves to have even more direct oversight on our projects, giving us the ability to communicate directly with distribution partners all over the world, something in which our label partners have expressed interest, while simultaneously strengthening our physical distribution capabilities in territories outside of North America."

In the past year, INgrooves Music Group has successfully marketed and distributed a number of global releases, which have tapped into the comprehensive slate of distribution and marketing functions the company provides via its INgrooves Distribution Services and INresidence Artist Services division. Mazzy Star's Season Of Your Day was released on the band's own label in 20 territories around the world and, despite being the band's first album in nearly two decades, was their highest charting album to date. Other successful projects in 2013 included Tommy Emmanuel & Martin Taylor's The Colonel & The Governor on MesaBlueMoon Recordings and I AM LEGION's self-titled album, which was released on Division Recordings.

Dominic Jones, Director of Sales & Marketing at INgrooves in the U.K., will oversee physical distribution for the company, working closely with Republic of Music. "The team at Republic of Music were instrumental in providing the physical distribution muscle needed to have such an amazing success story with the Mazzy Star project in so many territories outside of the U.S. We are looking forward to working even more closely with them as we ramp up for some exciting projects this year."

Mark McQuillan, Managing Director of Republic of Music commented: "The strategic relationship we embarked on with INgrooves in 2012 has worked extremely well for both of our companies, and we can see the potential for this to build in the future in a big way, and that is exciting. I feel we both bring our own unique strengths to the partnership and I like the fact that both companies are truly independent. The chance to work even closer together on upcoming projects is a great opportunity for both of us, and together I am very confident that we will be able to help more artists this year to even greater success and bring some exciting bands / artists through the new set up."
