Universal Music Publishing has hired Cristina Chavez as VP A&R. “I am THRILLED to be joining UMPG and its exceptional A&R team”, she says. “[CEO] Jody Gerson and [Head Of US A&R] David Gray are such respected publishing leaders, and I knew from our early conversations that this is where I am supposed to be. I look forward to adding value to our already amazing team and roster”.

Alibi Music has appointed David Diaz as Director Of Marketing. “I hope to offer new insights into an already highly defined marketing strategy, and look forward to increasing my value as Alibi transitions into its next chapter of growth and scale”, he says.



Ed Sheeran has released another remix of ‘2Step’, this one featuring Australian musician Budjerah. “I was so shocked to have won my first ARIA Award for Breakthrough Artist at last year’s ARIAs, and it meant so much to me that Ed Sheeran was the one who read my name out”, he says. “To now be featuring on the Australian remix of Ed’s track ‘2Step’ and have it released globally as I’m just starting my first overseas tour is really exciting!”

Flying Lotus has released ‘They Call Me Magic (Main Title Theme)’ from upcoming Magic Johnson documentary ‘They Cal Me Magic’.

Black Midi will release new album, ‘Hellfire’, on 15 Jul. From it, this is ‘Welcome To Hell’.

Nova Twins have released new single ‘Puzzles’. Their debut album, ‘Supernova’, is out on 17 Jun.

Skott has shared new single ‘Sunshine’. “The song is about daring to live life without a roof, without limits”, she says. “Daring to be vulnerable and let both the sunshine as well as the rain in. If you over-protect yourself from potential bad things and stormy weather, that same shield could also block out the sun and some of the best things in life”.
