What Does DJ Envy Have to do With BMG’s Partnership with Commission Music?

starting a businessThere are partnerships and deals out here to made if individuals put themselves in the right position.  With radio being an unsteady industry, radio personalities have used their platforms to assist in building their individual brands.  With DJ Envy being one of Commission Music’s latest signings, this could bode well for the Breakfast Club DJ. Why do you ask? 

Commission has now partnered with BMG to release upcoming new singles and albums from its roster of artists including Lil Dicky, MadeinTYO, 24HRS, DJ Envy and more. The first release under the new agreement MadeinTYO’s ‘Skateboard P (ft. Big Sean)’, the follow up to his smash hit platinum single ‘Uber Everywhere,’ is available now via BMG.

Platinum selling artist and producer MadeinTYO (Malcolm Jamaal Davis) found wide success and acclaim following the release of his track ‘Uber Everywhere,’ a song based on the rideshare economy. Bestowed his moniker after being raised in Tokyo during his teen years, Davis moved to Atlanta and later that same year dropped the single ‘I Want’ via Soundcloud. His follow up and debut mixtape You Are Forgiven, produced the smash single hitting Top 10 on the urban radio charts while selling over one million and a half downloads earning him a spot on the coveted “Breakout Act of 2016” lists by both Billboard and Spotify. His latest single ‘Skateboard P (feat. Big Sean)’ has already received over 40 million streams. MadeinTYO will join chart-topping Detroit rapper Big Sean on his I Decided Tour this spring, as a special guest.

Founded in 2015 by artist managers Anthony Martini and Doug Neumann, Commission Music’s quick ascent to the top has yielded big dividends for their rising artists, amassing over one billion streams, more than 500 million video views and two million-plus digital downloads.

Anthony Martini, co-owner Commission Music said, “We started Commission in response to a broken model. After years as an artist manager, I knew we could do better…and we have with BMG. Our partnership will allow us to expand that vision without compromising our DIY spirit.”

Doug Neumann, co-owner Commission Music said, “We are thrilled to partner up with BMG, a forward thinking company which has the resources and experienced personnel needed to help us achieve the goals of our artists in this new music industry climate.”

Jon Cohen, BMG EVP, Recorded Music said, “Anthony and Doug are an amazing team with a proven track record — in a very short amount of time. We couldn’t be more excited to be teaming up with Commission, as they help to build a new foundation of frontline recordings for BMG.”

Commission has signed 24hrs who has quickly become one of the hottest new acts in the game. With big co-signs from Pigeons & Planes, FADER and Hot New Hip Hop, 24hrs is fresh off a sold out US headline tour and in the studio with Wiz Khalifa, G-Eazy, Gucci Mane and Ty Dolla $ign.
