Black Butter Records locks global deal with Sony Music UK
Infamous UK independent label Black Butter, the imprint that championed such acts as Rudimental, Clena Bandit and Gorgon City, has formally joined Sony Music. Formed in 2010, by Henry Village and Joe Gossa, the independent hit machine will now act as a stand-alone part of Sony Music UK, with Chairman and CEO Jason Lley taking the reigns for the globally scoped deal.
Joining the likes of Columbia, RCA and Relentless Records within in the Sony UK family, the deal is one indicative of the major’s vision for expansion in 2015. Lley told Music Week: “Black Butter is the most exciting label to have emerged in the last five years so this a real coup for us. Henry and Joe bring with them a rare talent for spotting exceptional acts.”
