Sony/ATV Music Publishing UK today announced it has renewed its worldwide deal and launched a joint publishing venture with CamelPhat. Consisting of Mike Di Scala and Dave Whelan, CamelPhat is a multi-platinum selling, Grammy and Ivor Novello-nominated production duo known for their popular electronic/dance songs and collaborations with artists including Jake Bugg, Rhodes, Noel Gallagher, Elderbrook, and Yannis Philippakis of Foals.
CamelPhat has earned incredible success over the last year with the release of their highly anticipated, 21-track debut album Dark Matter, which incorporates several of their classic hits alongside brand-new material. The album includes fan-favorite singles “Easier” ft. LOWES and "Be Someone” with Jake Bugg and features prominent talent such as Skream and Noel Gallagher.
Sony/ATV Music Publishing UK President, Co-Managing Director, David Ventura stated,“David and Mike are heroes in the electronic/dance world, and it is a true honour for us to officialise and step up our relationship. Outside of their CamelPhat artist act, they have been excelling in songwriting and in production, but also in A&R and collaborating with and for other artists. This is only the beginning of an incredible new chapter. ”
“We're really happy to continue working with David and his team,” CamelPhat said. “We have known each other for a while now and our admin deal was of great benefit to us as we could see firsthand the team's support and knowledge. We're really excited to make it official, and with our own publishing imprint, it was important for us to help find and nurture the new, fresh and emerging talent. We look forward to what the future holds together.”
“The success of CamelPhat is down to two people, Mike and David. They haven't followed any set path or formula. They have trusted their instincts and let the music do the talking, leading and pioneering the way in the electronic dance space. They are now forming a tight team around them to help support them and this new relationship with Sony/ATV is one of those. The passion, expertise and energy of David Ventura and his team made this an easy decision to make and were excited to see the journey unfold,” said Anton Powers, Manager, CamelPhat Music.
CamelPhat gained international prominence in 2017 with their song “Cola” featuring Elderbrook, which earned a No.1 spot on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart, an Ivor Novello nomination for Best Contemporary song, and a Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording.
