Independent publisher Sentric Music have signed a sub-publishing deal with urban music company Defenders Entertainment and it’s publishing outfit, Digital Music and Media Publishing (whose copyrights include a share of Drake’s smash hit ‘One Dance’). Digital Music and Media Publishing (DMMP) are the original publisher of Do You Mind? from Crazy Cousinz Ft Kyla, which was sampled on the hit track.
The two companies are joining together in order to sign new writers, producers and artists and to also give them opportunity in the industry.
The founder of Defenders Ent/DMMP, Mr Corey Johnson said:
“As soon as Peter and Chris explained how Sentrics Systems Work, it was the only option for Defenders Ent and DMMP. The money made via Youtube, Soundcloud and live alone has become a myth that needs to be explained.”
“Representing the core service and introducing the 28 day system to Grime, Rap, Dancehall, Afro beat and other urban genres is not only an honour but a massive responsibility. Yes it will change how traditional publishing is done, but its time to see the writers, artists and composers paid when they are most active and in need.”
Sentric Music, which has been running for five years, is best known for its forward-thinking standard agreements whereby artists retain control of their copyright and use the company’s technology, infrastructure and creative services to develop their career and add value to their songs.
The company is now home to over 80,000 songwriters and represents hundreds of thousands of songs on behalf of songwriters, music publishers and other catalogue owners worldwide. It has offices in Hamburg, Amsterdam and New York as well as its Liverpool headquarters.

SIX WEEKS ON TOP: DRAKE ‘ONE DANCE’ FEATURING KYLA STILL AT NUMBER ONE
Drake has spent a special six weeks at number one, topping the UK, Canadian and Billboard charts with his track ‘One Dance’ featuring British singer Kyla.
Kyla a housewife and mum from Huntingdon, UK was surprised with a feature from Drake, seven years after releasing her UK club classic, ‘Do you mind’ under Defenders Ent and Northern Line records.
Written by Kyla and her now husband Errol aka Paleface ‘Do you mind’ was remixed by Crazy Cousinz in 2009 and spearheaded the rise and popularity of UK Funky House.
It has been assumed that Drake may have come across ‘Do you mind’ on one of his many trips to the UK – or whilst hanging out with UK grime collective Boy Better Know and its leaders Skepta and JME. With much speculation around his album ‘Views’ – Drake decided to sample Kyla’s ’Do you mind’ for his song ‘One Dance’ – he later on decided to feature the UK singer; changing her life in an instant.
Being featured on ‘One Dance’ makes Kyla the first woman to hold the UK official chart number one in 2016 and also secured Drakes first ever UK, Canadian and USA number one.
It has been six weeks since the world was introduced to Kyla’s voice – One Dance has given her the opportunity to stun the world with her catalogue of music that sits in-between R&B, Soul, Jazz and Pop genres.
Having sung across different genres throughout her early career, Kyla will now be releasing music to a world that knows’ her name – that is now ready for her eclectic tone, versatile sound and world class character.
A humbling opportunity yet a dream come true. Kyla has become an inspiration to all ages, genders and races – because no matter what, everyone has a dream – her dreams came true in One Dance, and now she is Britain’s Number One.
