June 18, 2015 BY Nettwerk
Nettwerk Music Group is proud to announce the acquisition of Maxi Records, one of New York’s best loved independent house labels. Throughout the 90’s, Maxi Records was one of the leaders in house, dance and electronic music, catering to clubs worldwide with high-spirited hits that spawned the careers of many established producers.
The eclectic roster of artists and producers under Maxi Records includes Sagat, Danny Tenaglia, Armand Van Helden, Roger Sanchez, Mood II Swing, Cevin Fisher, Naked Music NYC, Itaal Shur, Danny Krivit, Victor Simonelli, Big Muff, Judy Albanese, Shay Jones, Masters At Work, Pal Joey, Claudio Cocolutto, Byron Burke, Benji Candelario, DJ Pierre and Julius Papp.
Nettwerk’s Mark Jowett says, “Nettwerk is honored to be releasing and promoting Maxi Record’s fabulous catalogue of iconic and timeless house, dance and electronic songs from the 90s. It’s amazing how relevant and current much of this music sounds, and we are excited to continue promoting it to a new generation of fans who are sure to love it.”
Adds Maxi Records’ Claudia Cuseta, “Handing over the reins of the Maxi Catalog to Nettwerk was a very natural transition. Having worked for them independently for many years promoting their exceptional roster of electronic and dance artists, I know they have a keen understanding of both the pop and underground worlds, and a desire to present unique and impactful music in a wide variety of genres. I believe they can best present Maxi to a whole new generation of club going music lovers.”
Nettwerk has seen strategic growth across its label, management and publishing divisions over the past 12 months, with the addition of a Nashville office, the 50% acquisition and go-forward publishing joint venture with Ten Ten Music Group, the investment and strategic relationship with Justin Time Records, and the acquisition of Robot Of the Century Music Publishing. The current Nettwerk roster includes such internationally acclaimed artists as Passenger, Family of the Year, fun., Guster, Wanting, Sinead O’Connor, Perfume Genius, Stereophonics, Olafur Arnalds and Chromeo, as well as sought after songwriters like Neil Mason, Jesse Jo Dillon and Andy Hill.
