London-based music producers Da Beat Freakz have signed an exclusive publishing and venture agreement with Benelux publisher Cloud 9 Music – which will see Bucks Music Group exclusively represent the duo in the UK.
The writing and production sibling team of Obi and Uche Ebele were recently invited by Sean Paul to work on new songs for his upcoming album in Jamaica.
They can also claim other recent cuts for the likes of Usher, Sophia Grace, Kat Deluna, M Pokora, Jeremih and Chris Brown amongst others, as well as the official theme song for the 2016 animation movie ‘Storks’ .
Teenager Sophia Grace recorded their song Best Friends, which has over 70 million streams on YouTube. Her recently recorded song HOLLYWOOD has over 8 million streams now on YouTube and is also co-written by Da Beat Freakz.
Last year, the duo received a double platinum award for their production Mieux Que Nous for the French artist M Pokora ft. Soprano. The single has over 25 million streams.
In February, the brothers flew to Miami to work on new material with the contestants of reality show reality series Les Anges 9, which they both star in. Their first release, Luna ft. Lyaz – Run This Town, went straight to the number No.1 spot on iTunes in France.
“Both Uche and Obi are incredible producers/songwriters who have a great ear for talented new writers/producers.”
