WHO WE WORK WITH
Will Joseph Cook
Will releases on his own label 'Bad Hotel' via brand new Label The Vertex, co-owned by Pat and Stephen Taverner [East City Management]. Remote Control run all aspects of the label, with a bespoke set of independent consultants in the UK, Europe, SEA and Latin America, as well as via a license in AUS/NZ. Luke works closely with Will and has established a strong digital marketing campaign resulting in the latest single Be Around Me, with over 20 million streams across all formats including an ongoing viral Tiktok campaign. His current single is a Duet version of the single with rising bedroom US star Chloe Moriondo.
Keep Dancing Inc
We were introduced to Un Plan Simple, KDI's Parisian label via a workshop we gave for The French Music Export Bureau and it was love at first sight. Coming in just ahead of the album release to advise on the Uk campaign, adding a digital angle with an eye on Europe. We just commissioned a Working Man's Club remix of the current single 'Old Child' and the band are picking up fans at UK media and streaming services.
Another act recently signed to The Vertex, Suzi is currently buried in the Studio working on new material. Her track 'Eat Dem Apples' has been the soundtrack to the recent Iphone 12 campaign and has just been included on the soundtrack for the Netflix new teen pic "To All The Boys". We are currently working on ways to ensure that we maximise the exposure of these tracks
The Murder Capital
We were employed by the Q Prime UK office to help them self-release their debut album via ADA. Working closely and enjoyable with the management team and the ADA Uk and European offices we established a pan-European promo team that achieved significant success across 2019. A superbly electrifying live show, combined with the band's hard work and a strong retail campaign led to a Top 20 entry in the UK album charts and a narrow miss of the Number 1 place in their native Ireland to Ed Sheeran (who?).
Co-managed by Pat, Remote Control worked on the management side with parent label BMG on their 25 year anniversary album release in early 2020. Now working closely with the band on their moving live schedule and merch sales while preparing for more releases when we are able.
Initially engaged to advise on Global distribution deals for Melanie's on Red Girl Media label, Remote Control eventually ran the global project management campaign for her October 2020 self titled album. Weaving it's way around the complete change around just as the project was launched, thanks to hard work from Melanie and her management team, great global promotion teams and some effective marketing, D2C and retail planning, the album was Melanie's most successful album for 20 years, achieving the Number 1 Independent release and 7 in the main charts.
Remote Control has worked in the background with the UK Partisan team for over 2 years. Working with such a creative and hardworking team has been a delight and we provide support across various elements of their amazing roster, as a sounding board and encouragement of their own and their artist's ideas and plans. The work they have done on Idles and Fontaines DC, in particular, has been a complete highlight, with the 2019 Mercury awards taking a special place in our heart. Watch out for some fantastic new acts to come in 2021.
We have been working with Graace since autumn 2018. Signed to Sony for Australia and New Zealand, Remote Control stepped in to arrange a ROW distribution and promotion set up for her first EP "Self Sabotage". A fruitful partnership with The Orchard resulted in over 75m streams to date. After a hiatus, Graace is back in the studio working on her much anticipated follow up and casually playing LIVE SHOWS in Aus at the iconic MCG amongst other venues. With plans being set up now 2021 is truly going to be the year of Graace.
Previous client Ostereo was the initial home of Mysie and Remote Control worked with them from her glorious single ROCKING CHAIR and first EP 'Chapter 11'. We put a strong promotion team around her and her stunning videos and visual content alongside her enigmatic vocals and presence led to an immediate pick up by the key tastemakers across music and style press. Now managed by Red Light, after her Ivor Novello "Rising Star" award last year, she is now signed to Fraser T Smith's own label with another EP due soon! We remain fans!
Signed to London based Independent Label 'Tenwest', Naomi Banks is a powerhouse soulful jazz & RnB singer/songwriter hailing from the UK. A recent addition to the Remote Control family, we are working closely with the Tenwest team in building on Naomi's already growing reputation as one of the most exciting up and coming female vocal artists out there. Garnering attention from BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra there is an EP release this May followed by more music later this Summer. Quite frankly there's never been a better time to get to know Naomi!
The minute we heard Luna, we knew we had to work with her. An incredible talent from Germany via Amsterdam, we work closely with her management team FRIDAYMUSIC, and Luna herself to plan and strategize across all departments for her upcoming releases. We have assembled promo teams in the UK, Germany and Netherlands and are gearing up for a very busy Spring & Summer. We cannot wait!
Continuing Remote Control's love affair with the best Ireland has to offer, we recently started working with ROWAN, a Dublin based 3 piece. New material is ready to go and we'll be working closely with the band and management team to plan their new EP focusing on the UK and Continental Europe.
