Ministry Of Sound has signed a deal with Sony Music to license the work of producer Sigala to the world, outside the UK and Australia.

Sigala has scored three top five singles in the UK since last September, with new single ‘Give Me Your Love’, featuring John Newman and Nile Rodgers, looking set to continue that trend.

“Sigala can be huge in every territory, we spotted his talent very early on and signed him for the world on the basis of one track, he’s as prolific as he is creative”, says MoS A&R Director Dipesh Parmar. “Three UK top five hit singles in a row, including a UK number one and a fourth imminent with ‘Give Me Your Love’ featuring John Newman and Nile Rodgers highlights that”.

He continues: “He has already established himself as a strong songwriter, DJ and producer, he can become a global artist in his own right having already proven his potency in a lot of the major markets with ‘Easy Love’ and ‘Sweet Lovin’ with worldwide sales in excess of 2.5 million. Sony, particularly Wolfgang Boss and Rob Stringer, have been very pro-active in their approach, we now have a strong long term view to make Sigala a global force”.

Sigala’s manager Charlie Arme adds: “We are happy to be extending a relationship with Wolfgang Boss and Sony International that has worked incredibly well to date in mainland Europe. Columbia/Ultra in America and the wider Sony family worldwide join a campaign with serious global momentum, with thanks to Ministry Of Sound, Spinnin, Subside, Discowax, Magic, Scorpio and Wolfgang and his team for the groundwork”.

He goes on: “The combination of Ministry of Sound and Sony moving forwards is nothing short of a global dream team for us, their collective passion for Sigala’s music from day one has spoken volumes and will no doubt deliver us results in the future”.
