Diplo’s Mad Decent inks new joint venture with Big Deal Music Group
Diplo‘s Mad Decent signed a joint venture deal with independent imprint Big Deal Music Publishing company. Under the terms of agreement, Big Deal will administer songs for Mad Decent while the two companies will sign new talent together.
Mad Decent was started by Diplo alongside his manager and business partner, Kevin Kusatsu, in 2006. The label has grown into a tightly curated culture center for some of the hottest up-and-coming acts and writers in electronic music, eventually expanding into the events space with the beloved Mad Decent Block Party circuit. Most recently, Mad Decent signed the Picard Brothers’ who have publishing credits on Mark Ronson‘s recent Miley Cyrus-assisted hit, “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart.”
Big Deal Music was founded in 2012, specializing in new talent and is administered by BMG and Peermusic. Kusatsu told Billboard in a statement, “Partnering with Big Deal gives us the best environment to be effective publishers and A&R people.”
