Koch Records Inks Deal With MusicSkins LLC

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - June 6, 2008) - KOCH Records has inked a deal with MusicSkins LLC, the leader in music-related, high quality vinyl products, to produce a line of skins for KOCH artists such as Foxy Brown, In Flames, UNK, Sheek Louch, The Myriad, Otep and many others.

KOCH Records President Bob Frank states, "This new venture will provide additional revenue streams and expanded marketing opportunities that will enhance KOCH's profitability and help build our artist brands."

MusicSkins LLC Executive Vice President Jed Seifert adds: "We are excited about the opportunity to work with KOCH and its roster of artists. We know that KOCH will be a great partner and that they will continue to be innovators in all aspects of the music business."

MusicSkins LLC envisions all iPods, laptops, and phones as portable canvases for art and individuality. MusicSkins LLC's focus on music, art, culture and personalization has created a stylish way for musicians, DJs and artists to become closer to their fans while providing a low profile alternative to bulky cases. From Hip Hop to Country, Art to Fashion, and everything in between, there's a MusicSkin to suit every taste.

The skins are made of premium vinyl, which will defend devices from the harshest scratches. The special adhesive is completely removable and leaves no residue so MusicSkins can be switched easily. MusicSkins add almost zero bulk so your device will still integrate perfectly with any case, bag, dock, iTrip or armband.

MusicSkins LLC President Vince Bartozzi says, "We have successfully differentiated ourselves from our competition through the use of premium materials and a catered licensing set-up. KOCH recognizes the benefits and the value that our products and service add to their organization, and we are dedicated to helping them realize all the benefits of our products."
