Golden Robot Entertainment, which includes powerhouse independent records labels, Social Family Records, and Golden Robot Records, has signed an international physical distribution deal with Soulfood out of Germany and AMPED/Alliance in the USA.
“This new physical distro deal takes both labels to another level with an unmatched worldwide reach dealing with some of the best in the business on the ground in overseas countries. This is huge for all our bands, our labels and no doubt for the Aussie music scene overall in Europe and the USA,” said Golden Robot Entertainment’s President and Founder, Mark Alexander-Erber.
With Universal Music Australia handling physical distribution in Australia/NZ and The Orchard handling worldwide digital distribution, the addition of Soulfood and AMPED/Alliance will only strengthen the two labels reach, with representation across the UK, Europe, USA, and Japan.
Golden Robot Records roster includes a number of well-known and up and coming artists, including Rose Tattoo, Steve Kilbey, The Art, High Tropics, The Superjesus, The Cherry Dolls, The Lockhearts, Mi-Sex, Toe to Toe, The Kids, The Buckleys, and She Shinjuku. Social Family Records boutique stable of artists includes award-winning country artist, Amber Lawrence, Jason Owen, Gretta Ziller and the legendary, Glenn Shorrock.
“It’s exciting to be a part of a young Australian independent label and see it grow really quickly and branch out internationally. The Art were lucky enough to cut our teeth touring overseas as well as our homeland Australia. To have the opportunity to do so with Golden Robot Records would be out of this world!”

“In this day and age anyone can make their music available worldwide online, but without the right people behind you championing your artists, they’re still not going to get heard. Every market is different and it’s really important to have the right people on the ground and in tune with what’s going on. Sadly the Australian market can’t sustain bands on its own anymore so it’s vital to try and break new territories to make sure our artists can keep doing what they’re doing.”
