Xtravaganza founder/DJ Alex Gold is relaunching the online service Xtravaganza.co.uk by the end of the year, Billboard.biz has learned.

Gold has inked a deal with V2 in the United Kingdom; it encompasses production, distribution and marketing, with the potential for upstreaming. The deal covers catalog and new releases. The deal also allows Gold to retain master recordings.

Gold compares his just-inked V2 deal to his deal with German independent label Edel 10 years ago. "It's humble beginnings again," Gold tells Billboard.biz at the Amsterdam Dance Event.

Ministry of Sound, meanwhile, handles Xtravaganza product -- catalog and new releases -- for third party exploitation (compilations).
