Downtown-owned music distributor FUGA has announced a new partnership with the Marathon Music Group. All the labels operated by the group – including Marathon Artists, Moves Recordings, New Soil, Mahogany and DMY – will utilise FUGA’s digital and physical distribution services, as well as tapping additional support around things like marketing, analytics and sync.

Says Marathon CEO Paul Rene Albertini: “Marathon Music Group is entering a new stage of its journey and we could not be more excited to do this in partnership with FUGA. Marathon shares with FUGA – and its parent company Downtown Music Holdings – intrinsic traits including an appetite for enabling technologies and artistic independence. We look forward to this collaborative partnership”.

Meanwhile, FUGA’s General Manager UK, Liz Northeast, adds: “We are THRILLED to welcome Marathon Artists to the FUGA fold. Marathon’s dedication to championing diverse, independent artists – alongside their passion for supporting emerging talent in the music technology space under their LABs initiative – makes them an ideal and like-minded partner for FUGA. We are humbled to be bringing such great talent and partners to FUGA and providing them with our best in-class services”.
