Nettwerk Music Group Announces New Music Venture, Nettrax; First Release “We Are The Future” By Andy Caldwell Feat. Angela McCluskey
Nettwerk Music Group is excited to announce an innovative and original new music venture called Nettrax, a full-service electronic music label that will directly solicit and launch standout tracks and albums from a diverse and growing talent pool of musicians and artists in the electronic music scene. With each release, the Los Angeles-based company will provide marketing strategies, as well as digital and/or physical distribution.
Partnering with Nettwerk in establishing and guiding Nettrax is Jared Barboza, who has spent his career managing and implementing strategic development at both Virgin Entertainment and Napster before starting his own artist management company, Abbott Monroe (Morgan Page, Andy Caldwell, Revolvr). A specialist in artist development and music marketing strategy, Barboza will consult on all Nettrax partnerships and new talent acquisition.
“Applying Nettwerk’s established reputation as a label devoted to artist development has enormous potential for the EDM market. The two most common scenarios available for an artist right now is to either sign with a major label who will want a huge commitment up front, or sign with a small label who has limited resources when trying to reach a broader market. Nettrax is the perfect balance between the two,” says Barboza.
Of the new venture, Mark Jowett, VP International A&R/Publishing of Nettwerk Music Group, adds, “Throughout its history, Nettwerk has been a home for iconic electronic artists like Skinny Puppy, Tiësto, Delerium, BT, Junkie XL and Morgan Page. We're elated to now have a label where we can closely work with up and coming, promising artists in the electronic genre; which at the moment is one of the most revolutionary areas of the music business.”
Nettrax will see its launch on January 29th with the release of “We Are The Future” by Andy Caldwell. The track, a progressive house anthem in the making, features Angela McCluskey on vocals; who, among many other accomplishments, voiced the hit song, “In The Air” released by Nettwerk Records in 2011. “We Are The Future” will be available exclusively at Beatport until its worldwide release on February 26th.
