“You have my support. Thinking about Amy Winehouse, she wrote some of the songs on her first album when she was 15 years old. Young people need support and access to resources like this, until people like me find them later when their songs are more developed.”

Darcus Beese OBE, President Island Records (2008 – 2018)

At UD we work with a wide variety of artists, inspired by the sounds, words and rhythms of Black Music culture. From the underground up, we have solutions to take artist careers to the next level.
