    (Tempah's manager & Disturbing London CEO)

Sony/ATV and Three Six Zero are signing and resigning deals in Blighty this week, with Tinie Tempah renewing his publishing agreement and BBC DJ MistaJam enlisting fresh management.

Tempah, who is one of the artists involved in Spotify's new audio series, has renewed his worldwide deal with Sony/ATV which was first signed in 2010. It covers his back catalogue as well as songwriting credits on U.K. #1 “Not Letting Go” with Jess Glynne and “Girls Like” with Zara Larsson, current single “Mamacita” with Wizkid and the upcoming third album Youth. The record will be released by Max Lousada’s Warner on 9/16.

Said Sony/ATV U.K. boss Guy Moot: “We are absolutely thrilled to continue such a long and happy relationship with Tinie Tempah, a truly special person, songwriter and proven hit maker.”

Elsewhere, Mark Gillespie and Dean Wilson’s Three Six Zero has signed radio broadcaster, DJ, TV presenter and producer MistaJam, to represent him in all aspects of his career.

On BBC, MistaJam broadcasts for 15 hours a week on 1Xtra and Radio 1, specialising in pop, urban and electronic genres. Last year, he launched his U.K. Connect radio show on Sirius XM and also has his own label in Speakerbox (that exists as a JV with Sony/ATV).

Phil Sales, VP of UK Artist Management at Three Six Zero, said: “MistaJam is a true one-off and an exciting and dynamic figure across a number of areas in the contemporary music scene.

“We are delighted to be working with him and look forward to developing his career in the U.K. and internationally.”
