MSI

Profile:
MSI = Media Système International a French independent label and distributor established in 1988.
During their history MSI established a number of other labels and distributed many more. They first came to light on the international market with the pog rock CD label Ugum Production. However, MSI are probably best-known internationally as the partner and distributor of early 1990s Spalax releases. In 1994 MSI momentarily ceased trading and then restarted, and this severed their ties with Spalax who went on to use other distributors.
In 1998 MSI again went through some sort of corporate restructuring, now as MSI Distribution (with a new logo) and diversified its range of labels and genres, establishing export distribution under the name New Line. Director at this time was one Michel Largeau, who continued with the company until their demise in 2006. The last-known MSI products are however 2001, and since MSI Distribution's demise Michel Largeau continued as a sole trader until 2014 selling remaining stocks.

Full company name: Media Système International S.A. France

MSI partner labels included: Body & Soul, DixieFrog, High Groove, Spalax, Ugum Production, etc.
