UMPG LAUNCHES JOINT VENTURE WITH DNB ALLSTARS
12/6/23

UMPG and the London-based label DnB Allstars have launched a new joint venture. As the "epicenter" of the U.K. drum and bass scene, DnB Allstars have cultivated a unique community with artists such as Vibe Chemistry and Alcemist. Rising writers joining DnB Allstars and UMPG include Grace Barton, Elipsa and Tsuki.

“I’m incredibly excited to start the next chapter of DnB Allstars alongside UMPG," Joshua Williams, creator of DnB Allstars, said. 'We’re thrilled to be working with [UMPG Senior A&R Director] Dougie Bruce and the team to sign some of the best new and established artists and writers in the scene to shape the future of Drum and Bass.”

Bruce added, “Josh is a pioneer on the new wave DnB scene. What he has achieved in such a short space of time across the label and his events is sets a truly entrepreneurial standard in the genre. Adding publishing to his already successful business was a logical step for him and we are delighted that he chose UMPG to partner and grow with. His infectious nature and self-belief in the brand will ensure there will be many signings to DnB Allstars Publishing.”
