Music PR firm Listen Up has announced a new Asian division. The company is opening offices in Hong Kong and Shanghai, in addition to its existing bases in London and the US.

The new Asian business will be headed up by Ryan Wilson, previously Director Of Electronic Music in the Asia-Pacific region for Sony Music.

“[We] are really excited to be partnering up with Ryan in Asia, and for him to be leading Listen Up’s endeavours in that market”, says co-founder James Mack. “We have worked closely with Ryan on many projects over the years and feel that the services we will initially provide in Asia will help build both our current clients and new clients profile in the continent even further”.

Wilson adds: “Listen Up is regarded and respected worldwide as an industry leader, so it makes perfect sense to partner with Luke and James and the team. Asia has been an exciting and progressive music and cultural hotspot for a long time now, particularly South Korea and Japan. With the undeniable sleeping dragon of China now waking, we are looking at one of the fastest growing music markets in the world. My experience has proven first hand that dance music is right there at the front of it – and the appetite is fierce!”
