MadMusick is going global…
The writer-producer team, comprised of Puerto Rican brothers Giencarlos and Jonathan Rivera, have signed an exclusive global representation agreement with Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG).
MadMusick is responsible for major hits like Daddy Yankee’s “Limbo” and Maluma’s “La Temperatura” (which they co-wrote and co-produced).
The Rivera brothers, who also go by Yan MadMusick and Yon MadMusick, have also written and produced tracks for the likes of Yandel (“Moviendo caderas”) and Alexis y Fido (“Rompe la cintura”).
They’re currently working on new projects with Maluma, Don Omar and Nacho’s upcoming single featuring Wisin and Randy Malcom.
“MadMusick speaks to a young global audience,” Ana Rosa Santiago, VP Latin Music at UMPG, said in a statement. “While they specialize in urban music, they work across genres and generations, writing and producing music with artists from many different backgrounds. I’m thrilled to welcome them to UMPG.”
MadMusick are the latest high-profile UMPG signing. Last year, the publisher signed Romeo Santos to his first major publishing deal and also began administering the publishing catalog of Roc Nation Latin.
“After a long time searching for the right publishing house, we found the company that believes in us and in our vision,” the Rivera brothers said in a statement.
