OneLove Expands

OneLove, which for the past 15 years has primarily been an EDM promoter, record label and talent agency, now includes publishing, management and touring, and brought its public relations in-house.

Founder Frank Cotela, the digital electronics graduate who ran a recording studio and music/fashion agency, plans to work on a number of tours and events in the next 12 months, while the Stereosonic festival, which he co-founded in 2008 and sold to SFX in 2013, is on hiatus.

The OneLove label, which locally broke international acts Tiga, Bingo Players and Crookers, will focus more on finding new acts. Under DJ Ant Celestino, the A&R division expands with DJ/producer Rob Pix to set up a new imprint Club Love. One of its new label signings, Miracle, is setting up a new hip hop label.

New hires Melissa Jong will oversee the new artist management division with Christina Rinaldi as in-house publicist. Former Warner Music label executive Michael Parisi will act as a consultant and oversee its joint venture publishing company with Mushroom Music.

The Melbourne-based OneLove, which has an office in Los Angeles, is finding recognition in the US for acts as Perth duo Slumberjack, Miracle and Generik. The latter is on a worldwide tour until November, including a residency with Calvin Harris in Las Vegas. Says Jong, “There will be an international focus for all of our new signings.”
