BROOKLYN, NY (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Independent record label, clothing company, and lifestyle agency has announced that it will launch a digital download exclusive label imprint, Ropeadope Digital, in February 2007.
The label will make its debut with releases from seven artists, including Aunt Jessica, DJ Klock, Electric City, The Frequency, Skip Heller, Larval and Reminder, offering full length albums exclusively through Ropeadope.com and all other major digital music retailers.
The launch of Ropeadope Digital marks the beginning of an ongoing series of releases throughout 2007 and, in the process, it will establish the way Ropeadope presents new music and artists in the future. In addition, all of Ropeadope Digital’s artists will maintain ownership of their masters. Ropeadope will license only the digital rights for its releases, and royalties will be based on a complete profit share between the label and its artists.
“I haven't been this excited about anything in the music industry for years,” said Ropeadope founder Andy Hurwitz in a statement. “While we will continue to release records, we are completely shifting our priorities by making Ropeadope Digital our focus. We have over 25 digital releases lined up for next year.” –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
