The Buzz: Sultan + Shepard sign exclusive deal with Armada Music
Sultan + Shepard formed in 2008, after which their solid in-studio output and vibrant on-stage performances gained them international recognition. In the past five years, Sultan + Shepard worked with and/or remixed tunes from far-famed artists such as Kaskade, Tiësto, Lady Gaga, Nelly Furtado, Coldplay, Madonna, and more. In 2013, their remix of Bruno Mars’ ‘Locked Out Of Heaven’ earned them a Grammy® nomination.
Last year, Sultan + Shepard got a taste of what an extensive collaboration with Armada Music would encompass. In September 2015, they touched down on the record company with ‘Bring Me Back’, a collaboration with Canadian singer Kreesha Turner. ‘Love Me Crazy’, the next Sultan + Shepard single to be released on Armada Music, features the distinct vocal tones of songstress Gia and will spark a continuous flow of new singles, set to drop onto Armada Music. All singles will be bundled in one EP later on. ‘Love Me Crazy’ is due out on July 15th.
Maykel Piron, CEO Armada Music: “We’re delighted to announce that Sultan + Shepard have joined Armada Music.. We hold their sound and unique approach to music in high regard and are really excited to start working with them on strengthening their legacy.”
Sultan + Shepard: “We’re very happy to launch our new journey filled with songs that we love. We had no rules in the studio this time around, we were just making music from the heart. The scene has changed and matured to a point where people expect more from DJs and from dance music in general and we wanted to showcase all of the diverse sounds that have influenced us since we started producing. We’re really pumped for everyone to hear these songs and we couldn’t be happier to be partnering with a great label like Armada that helps support artists carry out their passion and vision.”
