The Berlin based independent record label was founded in 2003 by Maurice Summen and Gunther Osburg and rapidly developed to one of the most adventurous and active German indie labels in the range of Pop. Very successful releases from bands and musicians like BONAPARTE, JA, PANIK, DIE STERNE, ISOLATION BERLIN and others entered the German, Austrian and Swiss album charts.
Their repertoire will be distributed worlwide via Zebralution (digital) and H’ART Musik (physical) from June 1st. “We’re happy to work with those traditional independent distributors together!” explains Maurice Summen, General Manager Staatsakt GmbH.
Staatsakt was just honored as the best indie label in Germany for the second time at VUT-Award. For this year the label is announcing new releases from acts like DIE KERZEN, KIRCHER HOCHTIEF, STEFANIE SCHRANK (LOCAS IN LOVE) and THE DÜSSELDORF DÜSTERBOYS.
Manuela Nikele, Head of product management and marketing about the new cooperation: “We are very pleased that we can include a new, well-known indie label in sales with Staatsakt. Everything fits together professionally and personally.”
