fuga_logo_for_webOn the eve of the Amsterdam Dance Event, digital content management and delivery system FUGA has reinforced its growing reputation with five key signings.  Respected UK dance label Toolroom Records,   Europe’s fastest growing online distribution service Record Union, leading independent distributor Republic of Music, San Francisco based OM Records, and global music hub WaTunes will all be moving their digital operations to the new platform.

Representing artists such as Mark Knight, David Guetta, Underworld, Faithless, Funkagenda, Dave Spoon, Dramirez, Fedde Le Grand, Richard Dinsdale, Benny Benassi, Dirty South, Jay-Z ,Mark Farina, Samantha James, Bassnectar, J-Boogie’s Dubtronic Science, Colette, Andy Caldwell and Chubb Rock,  these labels and distributors will now benefit from FUGA’s innovative approach to digital distribution.

Said Stuart Knight, Director of Toolroom “As our business expands FUGA made perfect sense… a system that allows you to have total control of your digital operation without the hassle of multiple uploading or high distribution fees. Couple that with a hard working and supportive back- end team, FUGA is a must for any serious label”

Said Daniel Nilsson, CEO Record Union, “At Record Union we feel privileged to work with the team over at FUGA, their support and enthusiasm is highly appreciated. Both Record Union and FUGA strive to accomplish change within the digital music industry and so far we have both managed to do better than what we could ever expect. Together we will continue to work to liberate music.”

As demand for FUGA continues to grow the company is expanding its operations beyond the Netherlands. With the UK office now fully operational, the next country to be targeted is Germany, home to many of the world’s greatest electronic music labels and distributors.

Running the company’s Berlin office will be Michelle Owen. Originally from Sydney Australia, Owen has been involved in music industry since the late nineties, progressing from working in recording studios to the position of International / Domestic Project Manager for SONYBMG Australia. In 2007 Owen relocated to Europe where she has worked for Ibiza Rocks, Buzzin’ Fly Records and most recently as Label Manager for Beatport in their Berlin office. Michelle is also the voice of SoundCloud.

Said Michelle Owen, “I’m really happy to be working with FUGA. It’s simple, efficient and easy to navigate, also, visually appealing with no clutter. With such a vast amount of digital outlets and their different metadata requirements it can get messy and confusing.

“FUGA have nailed it with their easy entry data platforms. Plus keeping all your audio and video files in one storage space gives the client easy access to re-send or re-create releases where ever they may be in the world and keeps track of the Catalogue and UPC codes.”
