For Labelcamp, the partnership with Republic of Music is the latest in a string of international signings that includes distributors based in growing markets such as Ewway (China), Kahuna (Turkey), Lujo Network (Brazil), and WMMusicDistribution (Hungary).
Alongside the recent expansion of its Frontend Dev, Support and Business teams to support its rapid growth, Labelcamp has recently completed a move to full cloud infrastructure in order to ensure the long-term reliability and scalability of its services.
