UMG divisions launch Twenty First Republic

Joint venture for Universal Republic, Twenty First Artists

Universal Republic Records and management firm Twenty First Artists, both divisions of Universal Music Group, have forged a new management joint venture, Twenty First Republic, catering to U.S. producers and engineers.

Bi-coastal operation will be headed by Worlds End Management CEO Sandy Roberton and Universal Republic exec vp of A&R Tom Mackay, who will also continue his duties at the label.

Operation will develop careers of producers and engineers while availing itself of cross-marketing and promotional opportunities provided by its Universal Republic interface.

First clients will be Worlds End’s stable, which includes such names as Larry Kelin, Nick Launay, Stephen Lipson, Tim Palmer, Atticus Ross, Peter Katis, George Drakoulias and Matthew Wilder.

Universal Republic president/CEO Monte Lipman said in a statement, “Through Twenty First Republic, we will be tapping into music and the creative process in its purest form, while leveraging the resources of our company to find production talent and extend their reach in the marketplace.”

Twenty First Artists has been an arm of UMG since its acquisition in 2007 as part of the music firm’s purchase of U.K.-based Sanctuary Music Group.
