Proper Music has just signed up the very fine Tru Thoughts record company to a new deal via which it will provide sales and physical distribution for the label’s releases in the Europe, Australia and New Zealand. This deal expands on an existing relationship between the distributor and the label, though previously there was also another distributor involved in the supply chain.

Confirming the new arrangement, Tru Thoughts’ Paul Jonas says: “We’re really pleased to be signing this direct deal with our friends at Proper. They’ve been facilitating and distributing our catalogue for a while, but it’s great to be working directly with them now. With so many exciting albums and campaigns on the horizon, we can’t wait for Proper’s team to get our records in the hands of fans across Europe and further afield”.

The deal was completed on Proper’s side by Vangel Vlaski, who’s just become Senior Label And Business Development Manager at the company. He adds: “It is great to be stepping into a new role in a company that I am so passionate about. I am looking forward to working closely with the amazing team at Tru Thoughts going forward, and, of course, to the Roundhouse birthday party!”

Oh yeah, Tru Thoughts is eighteen years old and is celebrating that fact with a party at The Roundhouse in London tomorrow. Which sounds like just the kind of thing Vigsy might tip in his customary Club Tip column. Will he? Won’t he? Will he? Won’t he? Will he? Won’t he? I can tell you. He will.
