UMC and Champions join forces

January 26th Facebook Twitter

UMC Management are delighted to announce that we will be working alongside Leicestershire-based music agency Champions Music & Entertainment in a joint partnership.

As part of the agreement we will share resources and work together to promote our clients and bring them increased exposure, which will translate to more bookings and ultimately more success for them.

Champions can boast arguably one of the most prized assets in the music booking business – Alan Warner FEAA, the president of the Agents Association of Great Britain and an individual with decades of experience in the music industry.

UMC are expanding from drum and bass to the entire urban music scene, and we are pleased to work alongside a company that has dozens of talented R&B, hip-hop, reggae and soul singers in their repertoire.

One such individual is Andy Abraham, runner-up in the second series of The X Factor in 2005 and the UK entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2008. A soulful crooner who specialises in R&B and Motown anthems, his first two albums were certified Platinum and Gold respectively.

Champions can also count on the talents of Faith Tucker, a young solo artist who, despite being just 15 years old, boasts a potent soprano voice and stage presence of someone twice her age and experience, as demonstrated by her performance at the Rugby World Cup opening gala in London.

In addition, Champions have one of the most successful X Factor winners of all time on their books – none other than Sam Bailey, who triumphed in 2013 before bagging a number 1 song with Skyscraper, a number 1 album in The Power of Love, and even supported Beyonce on one of the dates of her UK leg of The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.

We cannot wait to work alongside Champions Music & Entertainment and are confident that 2016 will bring both companies unprecedented success.

Champions Music and Bands also works alongside Champions after dinner speakers and champions motivational speakers.

Great reviews for Greenlaw Live!

April 17th Facebook Twitter

Greenlaw have arrived back from a very successful tour with World of D&B to fantastic reviews all round. The hard working duo really showed the US and Canadian ravers what they are all about and here below are a few comments from the promoters of some of the events they passed through. Congratulations to them both!

- “Many of our guests said Greenlaw Live was a highlight of the World of Drum & Bass 2012 event this past March. Skyla & Ozzie are amazing on stage. We agree! From the moment they took to the stage, their music & energy struck a chord with everyone in the room. We’re excited to have them back to Kelowa very soon.” -JGirl & Manousos – Footwerk.ca

- ” A truly delightful live experience with multi-colored layers of beats, bass, rhymes and melodies; ranging from the tranquil all the way to the heavy. Ozzie and Skyla J are perfectly in sync, cruising into different realms, BPM’s, styles and flows. They infuse soul into everything they create, making every performance unique and special, Definitely a Favourite in PR !!”

- “Greenlaw put together an electrifying live performance for the Brooklyn leg of the World of Drum & Bass tour. Spanning multiple styles of bass music,this is an act not to be missed!”

- Eshin (Profound Audio, NYC)

“Greenlaw brought to Buffalo a musical experience on a different level. The buzz about Greenlaw after the show was noticable. Definately want to have them back.”

The Mighty Grooverider

October 11th Facebook Twitter

UMC is very very proud to announce the arrival of the mighty Grooverider to the roster. This long awaited addition is available with immediate effect for bookings Worldwide.

Grooverider began his DJing at illegal raves and warehouse parties in the UK in the late 1980s, and rose to prominence with partner Fabio through his sets at nightclub nights such as ‘Rage’. Grooverider was also on the London pirate radio station, Phase One, in the mid 1980s. The station also featured Colin Dale, Dave Angel,RD aka Dj Dodge, Booker T and Fabio. He originally played soul, hip hop and disco but later played house, upon being converted whilst hearing “Mysteries of Love” by Mr. Fingers.

Fabio and Grooverider began playing house at Mendoza’s in Brixton. From there the pair went on to a venue in Barrington Road in Brixton, but it was not until 1991 that they would really make their mark. That year, Grooverider and Fabio took up a residency at the ‘Rage’ event at the London venue, Heaven. Throughout the 1990s, Grooverider released tracks as Codename John and helped build the reputations of Matrix and Boymerang with releases on his own record label, Prototype. In 1997, Grooverider compiled the album, Prototype Years which featured the best tracks by various artists who appeared on his label.

His show on BBC Radio 1 (presented in conjunction with Fabio) attracted a devoted audience. Although Grooverider is known primarily as a DJ and radio presenter, he was also a recording artist under his artist name, and the ‘Codename John’ moniker. As a recording artist, Grooverider has released one album, Mysteries of Funk(Sony 1998), produced in conjunction with Optical, and a number of remixes including his reworkings of Jonny L’s “Piper” plus Roni Size/Represent’s “Share The Fall”. In 2005, he was holding a weekly Sunday session called Grace at the London club, Herbal. Grooverider returned to the BBC Radio 1 drum and bass show with Fabio on the 18 October 2008, and continues to co-present the show weekly on Sundays.
