LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/28/12 -- Seven Arts Entertainment Inc. (NASDAQ: SAPX) announced today that Big Jake Music, part of Seven Arts Music, has acquired the domestic rights to European dance artist Abie Flinstone, and has initiated marketing of her newest single, "Get Outta My Way," pursuant to a joint venture with Europe's Mostiko Records. Abie's single will be available through all digital outlets by April 20, 2012.
Abie Flinstone's single has already achieved success in Europe, reaching #2 in Belgium's dance charts, and receiving radio and video play in other European countries. Hailing from Southern Davao (Philippines) but currently residing in Belgium, this nineteen year-old international artist was quickly signed to independent label Mostiko Records. Through a joint venture agreement, Seven Arts Music has acquired the distribution rights for the United States and Canadian markets for Abie Flinstone's music.
Big Jake Music founder Jake Shapiro stated, "Abie's old-school flow, combined with great lyrics and her sense of humor, impressed me the first time I heard her records. I think Abie is a star and will appeal to hip hop, top forty, and crossover radio stations and music fans."
Seven Arts Music CEO David Michery stated, "Dance music is selling well domestically. Initial radio reaction to Abie has been positive."
