Bazzazian, one of Germany's most renowned producers, has signed a global publishing deal with BMG, entering his first publishing partnership in over 15 years. The deal covers the producer's entire catalogue of songs, including 'Ich Rolle Mit Meim Besten', 'Das Geld Muss Weg', and 'Haus am Meer', as well as future works.
Bazzazian said: "I am looking forward to working with Marc Johlen, Niels Eberhardt and the rest of the BMG team. The combination of my manager Max Mönster and a very ambitious and motivated publisher like BMG is the perfect starting point for me. I'm very excited about what the future with this team will bring for my music."
Niels Eberhardt, BMG Manager A&R Publishing GSA, added: "With his unmistakable sound, Bazzazian has conquered the music world and gives each of his beats incomparable energy. He is one of the few producers whose creative diversity effortlessly bridges the gap between pop, rap, and alternative genres."
Bazzazian has worked closely with German rapper Haftbefehl for many years – from his debut album Azzlack Stereotyp (2010) to Russisch Roulette (2014) to the Top 10 success Das Schwarze Album (2021) – and has produced for some of Germany's best-known artists, including Till Lindemann, Miss Platnum, K.I.Z, Gentleman and Schmyt. Together with Farhot, he also forms the producer duo Die Achse.
In 2019, he worked as a musical supervisor on the Netflix series Skylines, for which he was awarded the prestigious Grimme Prize in 2020. The jury particularly praised the "furious handling of music in the series."
Bazzazian is currently working on a producer album.
