New York-based label management firm Prommer Inc. has inked a “vendor-like” deal with indie distributor Caroline, founder Michael Prommer says. Prommer will secure foreign and domestic labels for distribution through Caroline. The first labels to go through the Prommer/Caroline system are DJ/producer Trevor Jackson’s U.K. imprint Output Recordings and Brooklyn, N.Y.-based Daptone. The agreement includes catalog and new releases.
On April 9, Output will issue “Again” by Colder, the recording alias for Parisian graphic designer and video producer Marc Nguyen Tan. Deptone is readying a full-length by Sharon Jones for a summer release.
Working with Hamburg, Germany-based PP Sales Forces, Prommer was instrumental in securing for Caroline distribution deals with such German labels as Stereo Deluxe, Compost and Sonar Kollektiv.
Prommer has also recently helped place several of his clients’ songs in TV shows and commercials, including Colder’s “One Night in Tokyo” (in the season premiere of Fox TV show “24”), Mo’ Horizons’ “Yes Baby Yes” (Kia car commercial), Fauna Flash’s “Ten” (Nissan car commercial) and Boozoo Bajou’s “Yorba Road” (HBO’s “Sex and the City”).
