Berlin-based independent label Get Physical Music has teamed up with distributor Zebralution to offer a new label management and distribution service aimed at helping artists and labels pursue opportunities in new markets, with an initial focus on Brazil. The new venture is called Get Digital.

The label management side of things will be overseen by Get Physical MD Roland Leesker, while on-the-ground support in Brazil will come from former Universal A&R Leo Janeiro. There are plans to launch other local offices in the coming months too, with a focus on developing markets.

“Our aim [is to] partner with new labels who will benefit from Get Physical’s label management know-how, alongside worldwide distribution from Zebralution”, says Leesker. “At the same time we intend to create genuine two-way traffic by representing Zebralution’s repertoire across South America, plus we will also be establishing a playlist network in order to cross-promote repertoire from both Zebralution and the Get Digital label pool”.

He goes on: “We are keen to get the operation up and running and in the process learn more about the musical cultures of countries around the world, while offering them a fair deal, and our vast experience with a European perspective: Let’s Get Digital!”

Janeiro adds: ”I’m very happy to be part of this team and to have the opportunity to work with what I truly love, which is music. We want to help develop the musical and business potential of this country, contribute to an environment based on partnerships, foster worthwhile projects and build sustainable work based on collaborative ideas”.
