NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — Universal Music Group has partnered with music industry entrepreneur Todd Moscowitz to launch Cold Heat Records.
Based in New York, the label will be up and running immediately, the company said.
During the last two decades, Moscowitz has perhaps been best known for his work with hip hop artists such as Fetty Wap and Gucci Mane, but says Cold Heat will not be genre-focused.
“Lucian, Boyd Muir and the management team at UMG have created an environment that encourages risk-taking and pushing creative boundaries, while giving entrepreneurs the resources and freedom to grow—and the results speak for themselves. I’m thrilled to be a part of the most forward-thinking team in the industry, and I’m looking forward to building Cold Heat Records into a preeminent destination for artists of all genres," Moscowitz said.
Before launching Cold Heat Records, in 2013 Moscowitz co-founded 300 Entertainment, a New York-based independent company that signed, developed and broke artists such Fetty Wap, Highly Suspect and Migos. He's also held roles at Warner Music Group, incdluding a tenure as President and then CEO of the company's independent label group, which includes Asylum, East West REcords adn Cordless.
Before joining the Warners team, Moscowitz was also a partner at Violator Management, where he worked with artists such as 50 Cent and Missy Elliott. – Staff Writers
