Australian digital music distributor Valleyarm has opened an office in London – its second in Europe following a Berlin outpost. The company says it has direct distribution agreements with more than 200 stores in China, Japan, Thailand and other south east Asian countries. It’s now looking to sign up more Western music to distribute into those stores, promising to translate the metadata into the relevant languages to make it more findable by music fans. “Asia Pacific is a very exciting place to distribute music for any label. In Jakarta, for example, the kids there are crazy for British mod tunes. In Singapore, Korea and Japan they love Jazz. And in Philippines, they’re going crazy over rock and metal,” says founder Gary Mackenzie. Valleyarm is also looking to distribute music from labels in Asia-Pacific to ex-pats across Europe. “We are looking for deals with forward thinking music services.”
