Nettwerk Music Group has acquired the catalogue of music copyrights controlled by Gent, Belgium-based independent music company Megadisc NV, which controls recordings and publishing copyrights from such artists as Gabriel Rios, Buffalo Tom, Neeka, Mathilde Santing, Elisa Waut, and many others.

This acquisition, made late last year, is the first under Nettwerk’s new partnership with Swedish industry veterans Torbjorn Sten and Hasse Breitholtz, which operates under the Nettwerk Music Group umbrella with a focus on acquiring and bringing increased value to master catalogues across Europe.

Sten and Breitholtz are using their depth of experience and industry knowledge to uncover under exploited catalogues from across the region.

In other news, NW1 has signed electronic music artist and topliner JES, whose catalogue spans some of the most important songs in EDM with over 300 releases to date.

JES has had two Billboard #1s, two Grammy nominations, countless Beatport hits, three consecutive wins in the ISC (International Songwriting Competition) and a much lauded International Dance Music Award for best new artist.
