Downtown-owned music distribution firm FUGA has announced a new deal with Germany-based label ONE Sights Music, part of the distributor’s ongoing push into the German market.

Operating as a label, publisher and artist services business, the hip hop centric ONE Sights Music was launched last year by Ramin Bozorgzadeh, who previously headed up rap and hip hop imprints at Universal Music Germany. Under the new deal the company will utilise FUGA’s distribution and data platforms, as well as its marketing services.

Confirming the deal, Bozorgzadeh said: “FUGA’s unique blend of industry-leading technology, marketing and access to a full range of digital service providers and global markets will be an essential tool for our innovative hybrid business model. I’m very much looking forward to working with the FUGA team and I’m confident we will succeed in expanding our network and realising exciting new opportunities”.

With further expansion in the German market a priority for FUGA, the company has also announced that Curt Keplin – who has been working for the business in a consultancy role since last year – is now its Business Development & Marketing Manager for Germany, Switzerland and Austria

On his new job and the ONE Sights deal, he said: “I’m delighted to be joining FUGA at this key moment in its growth, and look forward to building and strengthening our relationships with Germany’s independent music scene. In particular, our new partnership with ONE Sights Music presents a unique business opportunity for FUGA to expand into the German hip-hop market”.

Meanwhile FUGA CEO Pieter van Rijn added: “We are all delighted to welcome Curt on board and look forward to further strengthening and growing our relationships across the German market under his guidance. The past year has already brought several exciting new partnerships in the region and, with Curt’s extensive knowledge and experience of the German independent music sector, we expect that FUGA in Germany will flourish”.
