BMG acquires AXS Music

By | Published on Thursday 14 September 2017


BMG Production Music has acquired French independent library music company AXS Music (not to be confused with AEG’s ticketing company AXS; don’t go confusing that).

The deal will see AXS founder Axel von Hueck set up a new French division of BMG Production Music, which will be run day to day by new MD Jérôme Keff, who joins from Universal Publishing Production Music France.

“Just months after the creation of BMG Production Music, these moves are indicative of our ambition to create a global alternative to the established players”, says BMG Production Music Worldwide MD Geert-Willem Koolhof. “There is a lot more to come”.
