Brooklyn-based independent record label Partisan Records is launching a new European office in London.
The boutique label will open its new UK base in Hammersmith under ex-Island Records and RCA marketing manager Adam Shearer.
Partisan artists Heartless Bastards, Callers, and Diamond Rugs (who feature members of Black Lips, Los Lobos, and Deer Tick) will release music in the UK later this year and into the new year.
Label manager, Adam Shearer said: “I'm delighted to have been given the opportunity to launch Partisan in the UK and across the rest of Europe.
“We have an eclectic, exciting roster of acts that I believe will find a good home here, and I look forward to boosting the profile of both the label and our artists over the coming months and years.“
Partisan Records was formed in 2007 by Ian Wheeler and Tim Putnam in Brooklyn.
