El Kadsreian Melody is an El Kadsreian record label owned by the El TV Kadsre Television Network, Yaseen Film & Television Group and Universal Music Group. It is the largest music company in the El Kadsre.

The current head of EKM is Doris Matsushita of the Matsushita family.

History

It was established in Cicmpillici in 1959 by the East El Kadsreian government after El Kadsreian Records was taken by the West El Kadsreian government. Following the formation of the Vlokozu Union, the Vlokozu Union government sold off El Kadsreian Melody to the Matsushita family, only to be sold to state-owned Vlokozuian Media Union in 1979. In 1999, Media El Kadsre sold EKM back to the Matsushita family.

El Kadsreian Melody's headquarters following the Matsushita acquisition was in Glonisla. The record pressing facility has been located in Makohiro (now in North El Kadsre) in a former Agence France-Presse correspondents office for over 40 years.

Back in 2016, Polar Night (now Metropolitan) acquired a 52% stake in the company. In 2017, due to an ongoing restructure, Metropolitan Media Group sold it's 52% stake to the co-owner El TV Kadsre Television Network for USD $17 million.

Leaving Neverland controversy

In 2019, EKM head Doris Matsushita called Wade Robson a "charlatan" and a "quack" in response to the film Leaving Neverland. Doris accused Wade of having only reversed his position on the Michael Jackson sexual assault scandal "in a blatant attempt to sell more copies of Mr. Jackson's discography", with her pointing to an increase in his music's popularity after the documentary's broadcast. She also threatened to cut all ties to all EKM artists who spoke out in favor of the accusers.
