Cash Money Records co-CEOs Birdman and Slim have announced the signing of DJ duo Stafford Brothers to their imprint, marking the label's first EDM artists.
Stafford Brothers sign to the imprint through a dance music joint venture with CHM. The pair, known for their pumped up shows, will release their first single for the imprint "Hello" featuring Lil Wayne and Christina Milian soon.
"The Stafford Brothers blew me away with their energy, superb production skills and strong remixes,” Birdman says of the group, which has shared stages with Ke$ha and The Chemical Brothers. “Their music may have a party vibe, but that didn’t fool Slim and I. With their ownership of nightclubs, their own reality television show, international tours and dedication to their craft, we knew the Stafford Brothers were serious and would fit right in with the hardworking YMCMB family.”
“Every artist that we were keen to collaborate with seemed to be part of the YMCMB family,” says Matt Stafford. “We had the chance to attend Lil Wayne’s 30th birthday party and spend time with Birdman, Slim, Lil Wayne and the whole crew and we felt right at home amongst the family. We knew we could do great work under Slim & Birdman’s direction, with the YMCMB artists.”
“There was no question," adds Chris Stafford. "Hailing from Australia, what could be better than signing to Cash Money Records, an iconic US label that has a global fan base?”
