Out of the ashes the Pheonix must rise… After several years of hiatus from the label business, IHEARTCOMIX is proud to announce the launch of their new digital label, IHC 1NFINITY!

IHC 1NFINITY is a digital singles & videos label with an eye on tonal cohesiveness. The idea is ambitious, this is IHC’s attempt to create their own ‘Marvel Cinematic Universe’ where all music, art and videos associated with the label all exist in the same world, regardless of genre. This is not a hobby label, these are pop songs, the videos will be cinematic and the art will be definitive. The goal is to create connective tissue throughout the releases creating one large IHC clubhouse where the audience can come, hang out and discover new music. That’s what the ‘1NFINITY’ stands for.

The first three artists launching with IHC 1NFINITY personify exactly the ideals we want to present: Chela, Antwon and Pictureplane. Each are an icon unto themselves in style, musicality and vision, all of which are needed to headline their own corners of world IHC. Much like Marvel, this is IHEARTCOMIX’s attempt to assemble their own ‘Avengers’!

The original IHEARTCOMIX Record label was launched in 2005 with the release of Matt & Kim’s self titled debut album. Lasting until 2009, IHEARTCOMIX Records succeeding in kickstarting the career of several artists still relevant today with their first official releases of original material or remixes including Matt & Kim, Flosstradamus, The Toxic Avenger, The Bloody Beetroots, Brodinski, HEARTSREVOLUTION, Juiceboxxx, Acid Girls, LA Riots, Totally Michael, Designer Drugs and Futurecop.


Whether it’s showing you how to properly get down to one of her mixes or propelling you into a state of pure nu-pop bliss, Chela has truly cemented herself as an emerging talent to watch within the alt-electro scene. Originally hailing from Melbourne, Australia as Chelsea May Wheatley, it hasn’t taken long for Chela to prove her stellar production capabilities from her debut 2012 single, “Plastic Gun” to her more recent standout singles ‘Romanticise’  and ‘Zero’, released through acclaimed cult label, Kitsune. Quickly gaining momentum for her lush vocal abilities, Chela rose to the attention of blogs and music media across the globe, as the voice to the Goldroom hit ‘Fifteen’, Viceroy’s ‘Dream Of Bombay’, and hometown friends Clubfeet’s single ‘Heartbreak’. 2014 is proving to be a monumental year for Chela, which saw her appear across 8 shows at SXSW in Austin, TX, including showcases for Nylon Magazine and label home Kitsune, as well as hit the stage at the Heineken Dome at Coachella over two big weekends. Relocating to Los Angeles amongst it all, June saw her tour North America as the vocalist for Goldroom, playing sold-out venues such as the iconic El Rey in LA and The Brooklyn Bowl in NY.Chela is back in the studio writing and producing for a debut record which will see her upcoming single ‘Handful Of Gold’ released to fans everywhere on 11/11. This is only the start of the best to come for this music and fashion tastemaker, Chela.
