Resist Music ceases operation, being Liquidated
Along with 3Beat Digital and Amato Distribution, Resist Music (formerly React Music) has ceased operation and is being liquidated. The landscape of Electronic Dance Music distribution is continuing to be a state of flux from the uncertainty of vinyl in the new digital distribution age.
Resist Music was established in 1990 (known then as React Music) and until 2004 was part of the Beechwood Music group before its closure which foisted an estimated $1.9 million of debt onto React. The company reformed as Resist and had never looked back. Its closure is sure to send shockwaves through the dance community.
This is a part of an email from Artist/producer Morgan King who contacted Resist regarding routine royalty payments only to get this response:
Very bad news I’m afraid. I was made redundant last Friday which is what it says in the letter I received this morning, apparently at that time Resist went into Liquidation.
The Liquidators are David Rubin & Partners, Pearl Assurance House, 319 Ballards Lane, London N12 8LY.
I know that Music Industry sales have really been suffering at the hands of modern technology so I’m afraid it hasn’t come as a surprise.
