Going to the extreme

Clients at the new division, which will be led by journalist, author and photographer Eric Hendrikx, include X Games champion skateboarders Leticia Bufoni, Chris Cole and Elliot Sloan; Eisley frontwoman Sherri Bemis; and moto-culture ambassadors Imogen Lehtonen, Sean MacDonald and Kelly Yazdi.

Others on the dotted line

Veteran actor James DuMont, who will next be seen in the Netflix crime drama Wonderland, starring Mark Wahlberg, has signed with agent Monica Barkett at Global Artists Agency for U.S. representation and Luc Chaudhary of International Artists Management for overseas. DuMont continues to be managed in the U.S. by Steven Adams of Buffalo 8.

Label 418 Music has signed with Lee Runchey of Beverly Hills-based Chrome PR.

The label generated more than 3.4 million streams last year and has 30 releases planned for the first quarter of 2019.
