MISSION STATEMENT

Max Music Publishing is a forward thinking, fresh new music publisher looking to work with 2020’s most exciting and dynamic new artists.

MMP is a highly artist friendly label, established by an artist with 20 years music publishing experience. As a writer and a publisher.

We have an enviable track record of 100s of international syncs. A global network of music supervisors, sync agents and contacts.

And with an outstanding backend service partnership with industry accounting experts, we carefully and dutifully collect and chase royalties, producing detailed statements and brilliant administration of your catalogue for neighbouring rights.

As an artist, we understand that you ultimately just want as many avenues for your music to be heard by as big an audience as possible. We will help with that.

As songwriters ourselves, we know what songwriters and artists beginning their journey want from a publishing deal: Excellent royalty rates. Quick payment of royalties and sync fees. No long-term contracts. We provide that.

We also understand from our own experience that being a writer or artist signed to a big publishing company with over 100,000 artists means you are often neglected, or worse completely forgotton. Max Music Publishing is a boutique publisher with just a small number of artists carefully scouted and A&R’d where every artist gets our maximum attention.

We are looking to build a diverse, progressive multi genre publishing catalogue that completely represents new music in 2020.

Brighton based Big Spring was originally formed as a three piece in late 2015 by brothers Ollie and Alex Loring along with drummer Chris Steele. Taking influence from 90’s-esque fuzz drenched guitar riffs, Big Spring soon after released their debut single ‘Buzzards Leave the Bones.’

Upon hearing the song, Radio 1 Rock Show host Daniel P Carter made it his ‘Rockest Record’ and labelled the band as ‘the best new band in Britain.’

At this point Big Spring hadn’t played a live show, so they spent the first half of 2016 working on their live performance and writing more material. They then recruited guitarist Jack Rowan, completing the line up as a four piece.

After releasing their second single ‘On a Bamboo Sleeping Mat’, the band were invited to play at Reading & Leeds festival for only their fifth and sixth ever live performances.

This was followed by tours with Black Foxxes, Decade, The Xcerts and Turbowolf alongside various single releases.

The band announced at the start of 2018 that they were recording their debut EP which would be released mid 2018.

ED SCISSOR

Ed Scissor's sophomore solo LP ‘Tell Them It’s Winter’ ruminates over life and love.
The LP settles on the notion that all human beings are on the hunt for the same thing.

A key player in the UK rap renaissance, renowned live performer, wordsmith and storyteller, Scissor’s artistic evolution correlates strongly with the work of Glasgow- based producer Lamplighter. As a duo, they have developed into key players in the alt-rap soundscape ever since their debut ‘Better.Luck.Next.Life’ dropped to critical acclaim back in 2012.

Fast forward six years and their nu-classical compositions are wiser and more profound than ever before. The camaraderie grows more expansive and ear-opening with every song; striking nods to love songs from the 60’s, 80’s power ballads, the seedy end of the 90’s R’n’B spectrum, to psych-indie anthems, rave anthems, electronica and drone, but moreover, countless nods to moving image, spoken word, soundtracks and scores; the music is rich, expansive and rewarding at every turn.

Scissortongue creates music that extends beyond the realms of reality into a strange, dreamlike, left field. It feels like an alternate reality in his head, fuelled by a heady mix of fantasy and reality, umbrella’d under a now customary gothic shroud.

Grim Sickers isn’t your average grime MC. Born in Bristol with a half-Indian and half-Jamaican heritage, he burst onto the scene in 2013 as part of Lord of the Mics V, taking part in one of the series’ most entertaining clashes.

Since then, he’s worked tirelessly to establish himself as one of grime’s most unconventional and distinctive voices, appearing on tracks and sets with other up and coming MCs as well as going bar-for-bar with grime legends such as Ghetts, Jammer and Discarda.

Making the transition from pirate radio regular to stageshow don, Grim Sickers quickly became known for his electrifying live performances, lighting up stages across the country with his inimitable energy and enthusiasm.

Grim Sickers has also carved out a reputation for writing memorable hooks and rhyme sequences, peppered with pop culture references, a dark sense of humour and incredible detail.

The track went on to be featured as KISS FM’s Track of the Week, as well as being spun heavily on Radio 1Xtra and more.

Whether it’s on air at 1Xtra, Rinse FM or Radar Radio, onstage at festivals, raves in the UK or as far-flung as the Czech Republic, you can expect to see plenty of Grim Sickers in the future, dressed head-to-toe in black with a mic in his hand, delivering bar after bar with the swagger and presence of a WWE superstar cutting the promo of his life.

GORRAN

UK singer-songwriter Gorran comes forward with his unique take on alt-pop. Inspired by the likes of Lauv, Post Malone and Billie Eilish, his eclectic sound features pained, distinctive vocals supported by deeply vulnerable lyrics, with productions that waver between dreamy and aggressive.

“I just want people to feel something,” he says. “Whether it’s deep pain or sheer bliss, it’s just so important to me that there is an experience being had. I really don’t like the idea of my music being confined to a particular genre - it’s not about that. It’s about the purpose and the impact of each individual song.”

During his time at the BRIT School in London (alumni including Adele, Amy Winehouse and Rex Orange County), Gorran would write songs on train journeys to and from college. It was here that he developed his love for songwriting and established his sound.

He presents an energetic and impactful live show which has this year graced stages across the UK, including the iconic Roundhouse in London.

Having already amassed over 450,000 streams with his debut releases in late 2019, and with support from publications such as The Line of Best Fit, EARMILK and Apeiron, it’s clear that Gorran has the potential to break through as one of the UK’s next biggest artists.

GENTLEMENS CLUB

UK trio Gentlemens Club is at the forefront of the worldwide bass music scene, leading the next wave of low-end sounds with their genre-blurring style and groundbreaking live sets. Originally formed in 2013 as a strictly dubstep act by producers/DJs Coffi, 50 Carrot and Soloman, the group now incorporates an expansive sound that explores every shade of bass, from trap hybrids to futuristic basslines and beyond. Armed with an endless stockpile of bass bombs, Gentlemens Club have cemented themselves as one of the fastest-rising acts in electronic music, certified by their international following, global tours and rapidly growing discography that already counts +25 million collective streams.

The Gentlemens Club sound pushes the limits of bass music: On any given track, they can flex wobbly dubstep drops, hard-edged subs and electrified rhythms atop intricate melodies and sophisticated sound design. It’s a boundary-breaking approach that has solidified the all-around bass act as one of the fiercest breakout newcomers in dance music of this decade. In five short years, the trio has secured a number of accolades, including: chart-topping original releases and remixes with the leading labels in dance music, including Big Beat (Atlantic), Bassrush (Insomniac), Deadbeats, RAM Records and Never Say Die; collaborations with electronic heavy hitters like Borgore and Kayzo; international radio support from BBC Radio 1, Triple J and Rinse FM; and a monthly radio show on Dash FM/Insomniac Radio, which airs the first Thursday of each month.

As a live act, Gentlemens Club are an unstoppable force. Their frenetic shows explore the wider bass spectrum, jumping from dubstep and bass house to drum & bass and trap without regard to genre confines. They’ve already dropped unforgettable live sets at leading festivals around the world, including EDC Las Vegas (three consecutive years), îleSoniq in Canada and Rampage in Belgium, the world’s biggest dubstep and drum & bass event. As a headlining and support act, they have toured across 14 countries throughout North America, South America, Europe, Australia and Asia. As well, they have sold out multiple international venues, including Metro City in Perth, Australia, the biggest nightclub on the southern hemisphere, and the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles. Most recently, in 2019, Gentlemens Club supported dubstep pioneer 12th Planet on his Swamplex North American tour; joined Hidden, a nationwide Australian tour, alongside Lil Yachty, TroyBoi and others; and launched their debut headline tour of China.

With fresh releases currently brewing, Gentlemens Club will continue to drive bass culture to new horizons and will explore a bolder approach to electronic music. Stay tuned for their highly anticipated new music.

TOOTAWL

During summer 2014, a young Irish troubadour named Richard O’ Gorman found himself in Nashville, Tennessee performing his bustling brand of indie/folk in such famous venues as The Bluebird.

Standing at six foot five, he was christened ‘too tawl’ in typical Tennessee twang. The name stuck like glue and upon his arrival home with this new title he began working on material for his debut EP.

T.NALE

T.Nale’s music stretches the audience perception and enables most to think outside of the musical walls. His passion is shown through the emotion he displays in his music with a very unique sound, it is very easy to identify the artist with almost every verse played. A sound that has been hidden to the South African ear will be hidden no more.

The 24 year old hip hop, pop and R&B vocal artist dropped a 13 track album titled ‘CareFul’ last year.

Trademarked with no features, one song stands out above the rest, ‘Attention’ is considerably one of his best works to date.

The upcoming single is a distinct look at the artist’s maturity and understanding of the everyday struggles within relationships as the single outlines the risks one has to take within their relationships in order to reach common ground. The single speaks to how important attention is in relationships and how, T. Nale’s in particular, is difficult to get and keep.

The musician says this single and album have unlocked a new level in his musicality. “Throughout my career, I have never felt more connected with my fans and my music. I truly believe in my work and can’t wait to give much more music to you,” he says.

VON MARLON

Von Marlon, real name Axel Bagenal, is a 25 year old producer born in Whitechapel of Persian/Irish heritage.

Forming his alias in June 2017 after a life change that birthed his new solo project; a separate personal and musical split in quick succession.

Having two grandparents who were music school teachers, Axel grew up listening to a range of tastes ranging from classical & rock to soul/jazz/world. Secondary school led to his hobbies revolving primarily around music: playing in bands since 12, learning computer software such as Cubase to getting his first set of decks at 16.

Whilst studying the BMus course at Kingston University, promoting for local club nights took up spare time when not in the studio.

Now based in Peckham, within just 6 months Von Marlon has run live & DJ nights at local venues such as The Montague Arms, Peckham Pelican, The Prince Of Peckham and The Nines as well as playing more well established London venues such as Club 229 and The Water Rats.

Having spent the last 18 months between Germany and England, his musical influences are moulded by both capital Cities. The name ‘Von Marlon’ derives from a Mike Skinner lyric - a nod toward growing up with UK urban and dance artists like The Streets, Wiley, Radiohead and Massive Attack to successful local contemporaries such as The XX, Mount Kimbie, James Blake and Sampha. This, partnered with his more recent discovery of Berlins electronic underground scene (e.g. Laing, Max Graef, DVS1 and Rin) helped mould the ideas for his first self-produced record.

Recent live and studio collaborations include artists such as Radio 1’s hotly tipped house duo Catchment (MTA Records), Albert Gold (Fierce Panda Records) and Jack Hawitt (Fine Management).

ZAK JOSHUA

Zak Joshua is an artist, producer & engineer working across multiple genres.

Back in 2014, his cult dance hit, ‘Figure It Out’ (his first solo release) was debuted on the 'Selected' youtube channel. In the years since, this has gone on to receive over 4 million views. The success of this early foray into music spurred him to pursue a career in the industry, enrolling at the Academy Of Contemporary Music in Guildford. After returning to his hometown of Leicester following this degree, he began to experiment in other styles, particularly R&B and Hip Hop, working with some of the best artists in the city and the East Midlands region, and gaining a reputation as one of the go-to engineers for local vocalists/rappers. In 2019, a full 5 years after its original release, 'Selected' reached out to Zak to give 'Figure It Out' the full release that it deserved. This reinvigorated Zak's desire to work in the dance music scene, and he is now well on the way to being a major player in the genre, with a whole host of releases planned for this year and further beyond.

Within the dance music sphere, Zak's releases vary in style quite dramatically, from straight forward, mainstream floorfillers like 'I Don't Wanna Wait', to nostalgic lo-fi jams like 'Let The Light In', to underground melodic techno rollers, like the forthcoming 'Signora'.

Zak Joshua is also a well regarded DJ; since the early 2010's he has become a regular resident at some of the UK's most frequented high-street chains, specialising in both contemporary R&B/ Hip-Hop and Dance.
