FiXT is an American independent media company with several divisions including a record label, an online music store, a film/TV/video game music licensing arm, and a remix contest site and community.[1] FiXT was founded and is owned by Klayton, a musician most known for his electronic rock project Celldweller.

History[edit]

FiXT started in 2006 as an outgrowth of Esion Media, the name under which Klayton published his earliest Celldweller material. After years of trouble with distributors over how to properly handle Celldweller's unique brand of music, Klayton decided to take the same approach to record labels as he did with his music and handle the matter himself.[2]

Some of the first releases on FiXT were remix compilations for Celldweller tracks that were called the Take It & Break It series. The remixes were solicited from fans who could download and remix the song files for free. Out of this series grew FiXT Remix, a separate site that regularly hosts remix contests for artists signed to FiXT or carried in the FiXT Store.[3]

FiXT released a remix EP for the artists lvl, as well a single for ex-Celldweller guitarist Kem's band Subkulture (which Klayton was featured on),[4] and the subsequent remix album for the contest hosted by FiXT Remix. FiXT's first officially signed band was Blue Stahli,[2] an artist with a similar sound and one-man approach to music as Klayton.[2] Over the next few years FiXT began expanding its record label division by signing more artists, such as Josh Money, Rockman,[5] Atlas Plug, Moonitor & Squarehead.[1]

FiXT began expanding its storefront division by hosting a selection of merchandise from various producers and DJs, such as BT, Deadmau5, Datsik, Dynasty Electric, Excision and Nero,[6] as well as rock related artists, such as Asking Alexandria and Enter Shikari.[7] FiXT also began to be an outlet for multiple alternative fashion based companies such as Bleeding Star Clothing, Shrapnel Streetwear and Dubstep Clothing.[8]

In June 2012, FiXT branched out into publishing with the release of Josh Viola's five-time award-winning sci-fi/fantasy novel The Bane of Yoto.[9][10] As Viola began looking for publishers for his novel, he reached out to several bands to use their music on a partnered iOS app that would feature his book in comic book format. In reaching out to Celldweller for music licensing, he got put in touch with FiXT, who seemed interested in The Bane of Yoto and decided to act as publisher for its release.[11]

In August 2012, FiXT hosted a video game-editing contest on YouTube to help promote the release of Celldweller's Soundtrack for the Voices in My Head Vol. 2, by having gamers submit edited footage synced to the song "First Person Shooter".[12]

Licensing[edit]

The label distributes music to a variety of film, TV, and video game projects. It does this by hiring a team of people who send requests to various people or answer them filed by others.[13][14]
