DA-YAM INGROOVES STRAIGHT UP BOUGHT FONTANA DISTRIBUTION FROM UNIVERSAL

INgrooves, a leading provider of digital distribution, marketing and technology services to the global music community, announced today that it has acquired Fontana Distribution from Universal Music Group (UMG). 


(IT NEWS ONLINE)


FONTANA AFFILIATED LABELS INCLUDE
Ministry of Sound
Jesus- actually that's it- what a crap fest Fontana is.




          Anyway- that's a baller move for INGROOVES- maybe they can sign some labels up that aren't total crap.  I know my decision to leave Ingrooves as a digital distributor was actually based on their inability to provide any kind of physical distribution support- so maybe this will help them in that regard.  They certainly know their shit digitally but, from a label perspective, 90% of your revenue is ITUNES, EMUSIC, AMAZON and now SPOTIFY and the division is like 70 10/10/10, so it doesn't take that much to be a digital distributor besides a connection to those four entities


          It will be interesting to see if INGROOVES pursues Indie labels that are currently distributed by entities like IODA, the ORCHARD, SECRETLY CANADIAN and REVOLVER or whether they will just sit pat.
