Intoxygene - Who we are
Intoxygene is a publishing company that has also developp a record label to provide to music a fair and equitable environment for its existence and development.
The published songs are not all available on the label catalog as this is not a specific company policy, therefor you might have to go on third party sites to purchase recordings of the compositions hereby presented.
The parties involved in this project have been brought together by Patrick JAMMES, an independant music consultant, actor since the eighties of the independent music industry, who founded the company and currently act as the company manager.

The management of The Young Gods career for 15 years (1989-2004) as well as Treponem Pal and the tour management for Ministry along the 1992 Lollapalooza Festival allowed him to improve record industry and publishing administration experience.
