Warner Music has appointed London-based Anton Partridge as Director Of Global Strategy, Electronic Music. “I’m very much looking forward to making the most of this new role”, he says. “I’ve had a long history with both the label and the team, and it’s exciting to now be part of shaping the strategic approach to dance music moving forward. We want to supercharge the way that Warner Music approaches the genre on a global level, and there’s never been a better time than now”.



Ty Dolla $ign has released the video for ‘By Yourself’, from his ‘Featuring Ty Dolla $ign’ album.

Rejjie Snow has announced that he will release new album ‘Baw Baw Black Sheep’ on 9 Jul. “I approached [the album] light heartedly from the point of view of making a short film through music”, he says. “I always loved ‘Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory’. I watch it all the time. I thought of ‘Baw Baw Black Sheep’ like a soundtrack to it. I put the movie on with my album, and they synced up perfectly. I tried to tap into all of these feelings. The music is really colourful, and the lyrics are often happy, because that was my state of mind”. Here’s new single ‘Relax’.

Garbage have released new single ‘No Gods No Masters’.

Dappy has released new single ‘Wounds’. He’s also announced UK tour dates in October and November.

Something that you think is ‘old school’ but at the same time super refreshing. YMCK collaborated with us on this and created the ultimate 8-bit world of Chai!”
