L.A.-based independent label SIDE ONE DUMMY RECORDS celebrates its 20-year anniversary by expanding their partnership with INGROOVES MUSIC GROUP to include worldwide distribution, music publishing and marketing services for all releases on the label. The deal was announced by SIDE ONE founder BILL ARMSTRONG and INGROOVES GM AMY DIETZ.
The two first teamed up in 2008 on digital albums released outside of the U.S., when the distributor was exclusively focused on digital distribution. As INGROOVES has further expanded into physical product, music publishing and marketing, SIDE ONE DUMMY has also evolved by redefining their operation and brand to meet the needs of the bands they work with and put a much heavier emphasis on artist development.
"We are very excited about expanding our relationship with INGROOVES to our U.S physical and digital business after being partners outside of NORTH AMERICA for the past seven years,” said ARMSTRONG. “Expanding our relationship feels very natural as INGROOVES have been a great and reliable partner, a company we believe to be at the forefront of today's independent music community."
“Our global deal with SIDE ONE DUMMY is very exciting, and cements our collaborative relationship with this fantastic label,” added DIETZ. “We fully believe in their team, and we are dedicated to supporting their mission as well as the future success of their artists in as many ways as possible.”
New SIDE ONE DUMMY include JEFF ROSENSTOCK's “We Cool?” (former singer of BROOKLYN music collective BOMB THE MUSIC INDUSTRY!) and TIMESHARE's “Already Dead," as well as a new SUPERHEAVEN album expected this SPRING. The label office is located in HOLLYWOOD and continues to release records from the likes of PUP, RESTORATIONS and ANDREW JACKSON JIHAN, among others.
