North Carolina-based Redeye is joining H’art for a new physical distribution partnership starting March 1st, 2016.
The new agreement will see both companies focused on bringing a strong offering to record stores in Germany, Austria and Switzerland for the vast catalogue of independent music being serviced by Redeye. Labels including Yep Roc, Acony, Barsuk, Bomp!/Alive, Burger Records, Kill Rock Stars and Signature Sounds will be among the first to benefit from the new relationship to name just a few.
For Redeye this move fits very well, as the company joined Proper Music Distribution in 2015 as well as consolidated their partnerships in the Benelux with V2/Bertus. Both companies are also closely connected with H’art, which will enhance the overall EU distribution setup for Redeye’s labels.
“We are excited to join H’art to give our entire catalogue a new push in the GAS market. Based on their experience and knowledge about the labels we represent, we are convinced that this will lead to very positive results in the near future” (Tor Hansen - Director of International & Co-Owner of Redeye)
“Taking on Redeye Worldwide for distribution is another great step in developing our portfolio for the GSA market. Redeye represents the American Indie-market and we’re proud to be their new partner.“ (Manuela Nikele, Head of Label Mangement & Promotion of H’art Musik)
