88tc88 supports YouBloom!

February 21, 2012

You all will know YouBloom, the amazing community that helps discovering and developing new musical talent. They just announced the winners that have qualified for the round 1 quarterfinals in March and 88tc88 is proudly supporting their groundbreaking work in sponsoring a distributing package for the 4 winning contestants of the final of each round.

Make sure to register, listen to the songs and cast your votes as this can be a important milestone for songwriters and bands to develop their talent, meet important people and to be finally able to step out into the light someday. It’s a great initiative and we want to thank Bob Geldorf and his team for their efforts!

Chinese New Year Party

February 13, 2012

The other day we had a little celebration of Chinese New Year at the office. We made Jiaozi (Chinese dumplings) ourselves, had a couple of Tsingtao and welcomed the year of the dragon. Though the decoration wasn’t really according to Chinese tradition, we did our best 🙂 We sure had a lot of fun and are looking foward to this new year, as it will bring new changes and challenges, but also new insights and rewards. I think I can say that being able to work here is it’s own reward, as one can’t imagine better colleagues and a better atmosphere. Here’s to you, 4709 (that’s the current year in China)!

Lichtmond goes China!

February 9, 2012

At this year’s MIDEM we agreed on an extensive cooperation with blu phase media and will distribute LICHTMOND exclusively in China. For the signing of the contract 88tc88’s Co-Founder Christoph Martius met with Martin and Gabi Koppehele (LICHTMOND).
From their website: “The project of the brothers Martin and Giorgio Koppehele is an artistic synthesis” – commends dpa, “A fabulous entertainment package” – says the DVD Magazine, “The sound is overwhelming” – rates Stereoplay. The ambient pop project LICHTMOND was released last year on Blu-Ray, DVD and CD. LICHTMOND also performed live at the Night Of The Proms Tour Germany, won high praise from the press, reached # 3 of the German music Blu-Ray- and DVD charts and was already awarded with the international Impala silver award.”

MIDEM 2012

February 7, 2012

Below you’ll find some impressions from this year’s MIDEM. Though some of the pictures are more on the party side of things we actually had a lot of fruitful meetings and will add some fantastic catalogs to our store. We also agreed on a collaboration with 2 very large partners – the details will be announced soon. It was quite noticeable that the attendance shrunk again, but for us the MIDEM is still the place to go to meet a lot of our partners and business contacts.
One thing though: Next year, it must not rain. Plain and simple. 🙂
