IHEARTCOMIX (IHC), founded in 2004 by artist, DJ and entrepreneur Franki Chan, and Caroline has announced that the companies have entered into a distribution partnership for IHEARTCOMIX’s label, IHC 1NFINITY. In its past, IHEARTCOMIX has worked with tastemaker musicians and released albums for Matt and Kim, Juiceboxxx, Toxic Avenger, Acid Girls, as well as developed relationships with artists and brands including Skrillex, Sundance, Adult Swim, Mad Decent, WeTransfer, Disney and more.
IHC 1NFINITY plans to release approximately six digital singles yearly, with each new single including remix packages, along with a music video and signature album art. To date, IHC 1NFINITY has released singles for Australian singer/songwriter Chela (“Handful of Gold”), Brooklyn-based electronic musician/producer Pictureplane (“Hyper Real”), soulful pop princess Gavin Turek (“Don’t Fight It”) and underground electronic mastermind Mark Redito (“So Many Things To Tell You”).
All IHC 1NFINITY releases contribute to a shared music video cinematic universe. Set in a world where the “N.O.M.A.D.I.C. Corporation” is everywhere, the heroine Alex, discovers their sinister intentions and begins a quest for revenge. Filled with strange characters and mysteries, these videos play heavily into the worlds of sci-fi horror epics and teen movies of the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s.
Chan said, “I’m very excited to enter into this next phase of IHC 1NFINITY with Caroline. This label has been a passion project for us beginning at the end of 2014. We’re proud of the releases thus far and looking forward even more to what the future may hold with such excellent new partners. We’ve had a little over a year off between releases now to write and refine the cinematic universe narrative of the label and hope the world embraces our ambitious ideas in this new approach to storytelling and music.”
Piero Giramonti, General Manager Caroline/Harvest Records said, “On behalf of the entire Caroline team, Jacqueline (Saturn) and I are very pleased to welcome IHEARTCOMIX to the Caroline family. We love what they do, are very proud to be their new music partners, and are looking forward to taking their music endeavors to new heights.”
