Ergodos announces global distribution with Cargo

Ergodos is delighted to announce a global distribution deal with Cargo Records. This major development for the Dublin-based label will ensure that Ergodos’ releases can be discovered in record shops from Tokyo to San Francisco.

A London-based distributor over 20 years in the business, Cargo supplies vinyl and CDs directly to shops, as well as through various partners worldwide, with leading labels such as Denovali, Sub Rosa, Important, Secretly Canadian and Tzadik all available through the company.

Ergodos’ diverse family of artists – ranging from woodwind improviser Seán Mac Erlaine to composer Simon O’Connor – join a rich catalogue, where they will sit side by side with artists as diverse as Godspeed You Black Emperor, Tindersticks, White Stripes, Glen Campbell and John Zorn.

“We’ve spent a long time looking for the right distributor to bring our releases out into the world,” said label co-founder Garrett Sholdice, who will represent the label at the Independent Label Market in London on 23 July. “We see that Cargo are an ambitious and experienced company, and an excellent fit for Ergodos, with many kindred spirits across the catalogue.”

“Ergodos is an exciting label with a rich and diverse range of releases that will fit right in,” said Joe Bangina of Cargo Records. “It’s a pleasure to have Ergodos on board — a welcome addition to our catalogue.”

Ergodos, now with over two dozen releases to its name, was founded by composers Benedict Schlepper-Connolly and Garrett Sholdice in 2006. Radically eclectic in their outlook, the label believes in presenting beautiful, enriching music to large and diverse audiences.
