2020 goes out with a bang for the FiXT Neon Team. With a slew of interviews, contests, and signing several new artists, here’s a recap of some of the highlights from the year!
FiXT Neon signed two new artists in 2020, with Young Medicine joining in early 2020 leading to a re-release of Interlinked and setting the stage for more to come. The second, San Francisco-based duo OVRGRWN, with their polished indie pop music with an ’80s cinematic side were signed to a deal in late 2020. Their 2019 debut EP O Well was re-packaged and re-released in December with new material scheduled for early 2021.
In November, Klayton launched a Patreon account complete with an exclusive discord.
FIXT NEON LAUNCHED A NEW MUSIC STREAM TEAM
FiXT has embraced the stream community since 2015, where all Twitch streamers can use our original music for FREE (no DMCAs), and this year we launched our own stream team!
“FiXT was one of the first 5 labels to sign a deal with Twitch back in 2015 and make our catalog of original music Twitch safe. Since then we’ve continued to expand our interest in partnering with the streaming community, with various sponsorships as well as making our catalog available on stream-safe streaming platform Pretzel. Now, with the FiXT Music Stream Team, we’re incredibly proud to be working with a core group of passionate streamers, helping us spread the music and our message even further.”– James Rhodes (FIXT VP & Co-Founder)

The Legend Of Sneaky James
While James was away on a business trip to L.A. the FiXT Team missed him so much they gave the entire office a makeover in his image! Legend has it you can still see James’s face in every deep dark corner of the office if you look hard enough.
