The deal will cover all the labels in the !K7 Group – so !K7, Gold Dust, STRUT and Rapster – as well as their partner labels like BBE and Get Physical.

Confirming the deal, !K7 top man Horst Weidenmuller told reporters: “Its refreshing to meet people like Alan Becker and Bob Morelli [from RED] who have such a fresh and open approach to our current music market. With their great team behind them we feel we have the knowledge and ability to be in a pole position for our exciting 2009 release schedule”.

Becker added: “As someone who has followed the music of the !K7 Label Group both as a fan and in my role at RED, I am very pleased and excited as we begin work with Horst and the incredible team he has assembled. We all believe the next chapter in the evolution of this great and enduring company will be full of wonderful music and savvy marketing”.
