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.
