Warner Music UK’s Atlantic Records has signed a joint-venture with Trust It Entertainment, which is home to some of Ireland’s most exciting rap, hip-hop and drill artists, including A92, Andre Fazaz and Offica.
The new partnership will see Atlantic Records UK work closely with Solomon Adesiyan, CEO and Director, Trust It Entertainment, and the team at Warner Music Ireland, to invest in signing and developing artists. As part of the deal, Adesiyan will also act as a consultant to Atlantic Records UK, both in an A&R and culture capacity.
Austin Daboh, EVP, Atlantic Records UK, commented: “We’ve known Solomon for a couple of years now, and he really is the linchpin that’s helping drive the Irish Black music scene forward to new heights. It feels like Black music has found its voice in Ireland, and Solomon and the Trust It Entertainment team are right at the heart of it, setting the cultural agenda and inspiring the next generation of talent. We’re looking forward to working with them to help develop and champion the extraordinary artists that are flourishing in the region and introducing them to a global audience.”
Adesiyan, CEO and director, Trust It Entertainment, added: “We’re really happy to be partnering with the team at Atlantic as with their backing, we’ll have the resources to further find and develop the best talent in Ireland. In addition, it’ll be great to tap into Atlantic’s global network and showcase our artists on an international level.”
Trust It Entertainment was founded by Adesiyan in 2016, during which time they have worked with and helped develop a range of artists, including AV9, Alicia Raye, Andre Fazaz, BoyW1DR, Chuks, Evans Junior, J.B2 and Offica.
