Black Rock co-publishing partnership with Electric Ibiza hits the ground running

Electric Ibiza publishing arm to benefit from Sentric’s cutting edge infrastructure and creative

Liverpool, 6th July 2021 Black Rock has finalised a co-publishing partnership with Electric Ibiza – one of Ibiza’s biggest events, label and artist management companies.

Part of Sentric Music Group’s Electronic division, Black Rock delivers a concierge publishing service and expertise to some of the genre’s top artists, managers and labels.

Electric Ibiza manages a host of A-list DJs and producers, including Sidney Charles, Seb Zito, Prok & Fitch, Ray Mono, Marco Faraone and East End Dubs; a growing list of successful labels, including Heavy House Society, Edible and Seven Dials Records; and event brands such as Do Not Sleep, Cuckooland and Epic Pool Parties.

As part of the partnership, Electric Ibiza’s new publishing operation will benefit from Black Rock/Sentric’s industry-leading administration infrastructure, as well as the company’s award-winning creative and sync team.

Acts already signed via the partnership for publishing include Seb Zito, Ninetoes, Sidney Charles, Detlef, Latum, Christian Berkhardt, LEON (IT), Malandra Jr. and Prok & Fitch.

Sentric Music Group’s Director of Electronic Music, Mark Lawrence, said: “I think Neil and I had been circling each other for a few years at IMS. When the opportunity arose to work with Electric Ibiza, it was a no brainer – they’re perfectly positioned in Ibiza with a global reach. Neil and I joining forces means we get to give their artists the opportunity to access cutting edge publishing administration and our ever-expanding genre-specific creative division, in addition to their deep reach into global electronic music events. To already see names like Seb Zito, Ninetoes and Sidney Charles coming on board through the partnership really sets the tone of what is to come.”

Electric Ibiza Founder/Director Neil Evans said: “We have worked with Mark and the team on various artists and projects over the years. Given the natural alignment of the two companies, it made sense to make our partnership with Black Rock Publishing formal and global. The partnership means we can present co-publishing opportunities to artists and power up our offering to a wider range of DJs, artists and labels we work with. The calibre of talent already coming on board is fantastic. I very much look forward to seeing our partnership blossom this year and beyond.”
