Little Mix


DJ and producer Oliver Heldens has announced a new record label, OH2, that will operate alongside his existing Heldeep Records, to focus on commercial dance music. “I haven’t really been able to focus on the more dance/pop side of things with [the more club-orientated] Heldeep, so my team and I decided to expand the Heldeep label group and launch OH2 Records, which will focus on the more melodic and dance/pop-leaning music”.



The Chair and CEO of Universal’s Capitol Music Group in the US, Steve Barnett, has announced that he is retiring. Current President of Capitol Records, Jeff Vaughn, will become CMG Chair and CEO, while current CMG COO Michelle Jubelirer will take the extra title of President. “This has been an incredible journey, and I’ve been tremendously fortunate to work with such amazing people along the way”, says Barnett. Byeeeeeeee!

B2B streaming platform and service provider Tuned Global has appointed Andrew Stess to the newly created role of Head Of Sales And Business Development for the USA. “It’s an honour to join Tuned Global at such an exciting point in the company’s history”, says Stess. “I believe that they have a unique product to offer, and so I’m delighted to be playing a key role as they reshape the B2B music tech space in the USA and beyond”.



Little Mix have released their brand new single ‘Confetti’. Oh, and also their brand new album ‘Confetti’, their first since crowbarring themselves away from the control of Simon Cowell.

Bugzy Malone has released new single, ‘Doe’d Up’.

Sega Bodega and Låpsley have got together for new single ‘Make U Stay’. “We wrote this track together in my Tottenham studio the first time we ever met”, says Låpsley. “It came so quickly; he showed me the track and I was immediately hooked from the strings, and then within the hour the top line was recorded. I thought the bombastic strings needed some intense lyrics, so it’s all about jealousy”.

Jade Bird has released new single ‘Headstart’.

Larry The Pink Human have released a new single featuring Idles’ Joe Talbot, titled ‘Wasted Days (Inbetweens)’. “It’s a track about not knowing the magic til the magic is behind us”, says Talbot.
