Description

A recording label unit, founded in 1999 following the reincarnation of the Universal Music Group. This umbrella unit was formed following the merger of MCA's Interscope Records and Geffen Records and PolyGram's A&M Records.

Later in 1999, DGC Records was absorbed by Geffen Records due to the merger. At the same time, A&M Records was kept open as an intact label following an integrity clause breach lawsuit from its co-founders. MCA Records was absorbed by Geffen Records in 2003 as so with DreamWorks Records the following year, unifying artists from DGC, MCA and DreamWorks to IGA. In 2007, DGC relaunched as a subsidiary label and A&M was merged with Octone Records, recruiting both labels as A&M/Octone Records, and also making the latter label a division of IGA.

In 2013, A&M/Octone Records folded back into the unit, taking all of its artists to Interscope/Geffen.

Today, former Fueled by Ramen CEO John Janick is the chairman and CEO of IGA (as of May 2014).
