Independent Australian music company TMRW Music has launched urban and electronic music sub-label Risqué.
TMRW is run by the team that previously helmed Ministry of Sound in Australia, which was rebranded after Sony bought its UK operation in 2016.
The label also includes sister imprint etcetc.
“Risqué is an artist-led label that strives to cater for listeners who lean into artists’ catalogues and careers and not just focus on the bangers of the week.”

Risqué will be headed by A&R Manager, Simon Lewicki, who said: “Risqué is an artist-led label that strives to cater for listeners who lean into artists’ catalogues and careers and not just focus on the bangers of the week.
“Risqué is the home for good music – international sounds that live in our headphones, playlists and house parties.”
“As the TMRW Music Group expands and matures, we are discovering more and more great music.”

TMRW Music CEO, Tim McGee, added: “As the TMRW Music Group expands and matures, we are discovering more and more great music.
“The etcetc label has enjoyed huge success lately including an ARIA Award win for PNAU and The Music Network’s Indie Label of the Year, and we are excited to launch a new label with a more urban/electronic sound as we widen and diversify the scope of artists across the TMRW Music family.”
Risqué will release its first single titled ‘So Real’ this Friday (March 16th) from Australian singer, songwriter and producer Deutsch Duke (Dennis Dowlut).
That will be followed up by a mixtape in mid 2018.
Also joining the Risqué family is Melbourne’s Charlz, whose debut release ‘Colors’ arrives in April and has been produced by Grammy and APRA Award-winning producer M-Phazes.
Urban/electronic duo Pony, made up of vocalist Thom Crawford, has also joined the roster.
