Under the new deal the labels will continue to exist as separate entities, but will collaborate on the distribution and marketing of their products and the products exclusively marketed through Lateko Records and globally distributed via DittoMusic based in the United Kingdom with offices in the USA and Canada.
The first project slated for spring 2013 is a new single from Inspirational reggae artist Semi. “Semi is an enormously talented artist who has been working internationally on the music scene for sometime. His presence is very special and both organizations are very excited about this opportunity to bring Semi’s music and message to a worldwide audience” says Lateko Records Marketing Director Cola Elcock. The smoothly produced single “Look What Love Can Do” will be hitting online stores such as iTunes, Amazon, eMusic and others in early March 2013.
