RecordJet Enters the Charts with German YouTube Stars "DieLochis"

Entered the German Singles Charts at number 55; YouTube as a stepping stone for musical success

Berlin, Germany, August 29, 2013 --( Just one week after their passengers "Milky Chance" entered the German Singles Charts at number 98 (now up to number 92), the Berlin-based digital distributor recordJet is announcing another musical success: Their passengers Heiko and Roman Lochmann, better known as "DieLochis", have entered the German Charts at number 55 with their single "Durchgehend Online" (Continuously Online).

What's special about this is that the identical twins Heiko and Roman, aka "DieLochis", are only 14 years old. They owe their musical success to their popular, well-maintained YouTube Channel. The two high school students from Hessen are managed by their mother Anja.

"DieLochis are a prime example of how YouTube makes sense as a musical stepping stone, because, according to studies, the younger generation uses YouTube to discover new music," says Jorin Zschiesche, recordJet captain, on Heiko and Roman's sensational chart success. "The fact that it's our youngsters that shot to the top so quickly is a delightful surprise. We can't wait to see what the two boys achieve in the coming months."

DieLochis are the young, Berlin-based music distributor’s highest chart entry so far. Passengers Milky Chance, Baba Saad and Room77 have achieved chart positions in the past.
