Music services company MonoKrome has announced a deal with ShaoDow, the rapper who was declared Hardest Working Artist at the Association Of Independent Music’s annual awards last year, and who has built an impressive merchandise and direct-to-fan business around his music while operating as a proudly independent artist.

Under the new deal, MonoKrome will provide the rapper with publishing, distribution, sync, neighbouring rights and back-end services.

Confirming the arrangement, ShaoDow said of MonoKrome: “After meeting the team it was apparent we share many of the same values. It’s amazing to have them as an extension of my team and I look forward to working with them whilst I continue on my journey”.

Explaining why he had decided to find a company to help further grow his artist business now, the rapper added: “This year I have an appearance on ‘Ninja Warrior UK’ whilst also doing a UK tour and releasing more records, and by having the support of MonoKrome it means I can now do more than ever before”.

ShaoDow is the latest in a number of deals signed by MonoKrome, which launched this time last year. Other artists now working with the company include Attaque, TQX Project, Cream Collective, Vinnie Stergin, DJ Luck & MC Neat and J Lee & The Hoodoo Skulls.

Says the company’s founder Kristian Davis Downs: “It’s really great to see that people are beginning to take note of what we are here for, by using our services it frees artists and labels up to concentrate on live and building their profiles. We now have tech and teams in place to take away the mundane chores associated with releasing records and are able to work with multiple companies in order to make our clients’ lives easier”.
