Kobalt’s recording company AWAL has inked worldwide recordings deals with artists Franc Moody (pictured) and Joe Hertz formalizing its partnership with UK-based Juicebox Recordings.
The deal will include a full range of services for Franc Moody and Joe Hertz.
Juicebox is the creation of Adam Callan and Becky Tong who curated London events under the same name as a way of discovering new talent and honing into the local electronic culture alongside their experience working in A&R, marketing, and promotions.
Now, Juicebox is an independent music company representing Franc Moody, Joe Hertz, and Amber-Simone for management and recordings, in addition to a roster of artists on the promotions side.
Franc Moody started as a collective led by duo, Ned Franc and Jon Moody, amongst London’s warehouse rave scene releasing their debut self-titled EP in June 2016. In 2018, Dopamine was included on their breakthrough eight song EP, Dance Moves, which has only added to their nearly 40 million lifetime streams.
Emerging from London’s UK dance/electronic culture, Joe Hertz has amassed more than 100m streams starting with the release of his debut EP, Chapter One with the hit, At Your Touch in 2016, later releasing the How It Feels EP in the same year. Hertz released his extended EP, Night/Daze in 2017. His recent single, One Sided is currently on the 1Xtra Playlist.
