(CelebrityAccess) — On Wednesday, Australian indie label, management, and artist services company Future Classic announced it had launched Wilder, a label joint venture with veteran Paradigm agent Tom Windish.
According to Variety, the label will be singles-oriented and serve as a platform for up-and-coming artists. The new label venture launched with the re-release of ”Applesauce” the debut track from 19-year old Indiana-based singer and producer Sam.Sts.
“Wilder is a means to get music released, promoted and discovered by as many people as possible,” Windish told Variety. “Quite simply, we’re willing to promote and release music before anybody else is.”
“I’ve known Nathan and the Future Classic crew for a long time. They have outstanding curation, creativity and work ethic. I cannot emphasize their long term approach to artist development enough, and for that reason, I could not think of a better label partner,” he added.
Future Classic, which maintains offices in both Sydney and Los Angeles, is also running a residency program until December. The residency recently saw Sam.Sts spend two weeks at Future Classic’s studio, where he collaborated with producers and artists such as Lecx Stacy, Naz, and Noah Breakfast.
For artists accepted into the residency, Future Classic covers studio time, flights, accommodation and will provide introductions to a group of industry mentors.
