London-based indie label Dirty Hit yesterday confirmed the launch of bases in the US and Australia. The American operations will be run out of LA, headed up by Greg Carr, while in Australia Rachel Jones-Williams will oversee the label’s Asia-Pacific operations from Sydney. The new divisions will both work with Dirty Hit’s global distribution partner Ingrooves.

Announcing all this, Dirty Hit boss Jamie Oborne says: “Our ethos as a label has always been to maintain and develop a roster of diverse and culturally important artists and an exciting and forward-thinking team with a distinctive identity, across a global sphere. Opening offices in territories where we have seen huge growth in recent years feels like the natural next step in the global expansion of the label. We are excited to build upon these early successes and have huge ambitions for the future of the label”.

Carr joins the indie from Universal Music, while Jones-Williams was previously with Sony Music. Oborne goes on: “Having worked with both Greg and Rachel for the past few years across much of our roster, we are delighted that they are joining the team at Dirty Hit. They bring with them a wealth of expertise and experience and are the perfect people to ensure we are offering our artists a truly global platform”.
