Bucks signs DJ and producer Max Chapman to worldwide songwriting agreement

Deal comes after Chapman won in the Breakthrough category at this year’s DJ Awards

London, 13th November 2018 Bucks Music Group has signed producer and DJ Max Chapman to a worldwide, exclusive songwriting agreement.

Chapman has been working with Bucks for a period of time already under an administration deal.

This new agreement comes after Chapman was recognised at this year’s DJ Awards, winning in the Breakthrough category.

Chapman earned support from Radio 1’s Pete Tong early in his career in 2011, when he released his debut track Don’t Go.

In 2016, Chapman’s Body Jack (released on Elrow Music) climbed Beatport’s Tech House chart, reaching the top spot just 10 days after release. It went on to hit No.1 across all genres on the platform a few days later.

Chapman’s second Beatport No.1 came in 2017 with La Fiesta, which was released on Jamie Jones’ Hot Creations imprint. He then went on to have successful releases on FFRR, Virgin EMI, Relief, Sola, Toolroom, Nonstop and more.

Chapman’s debut album, Catch Me If You Can, released in 2016 on MadTech, was given a 9/10 from Mixmag and DJ Mag, as well as hitting No.10 in the Beatport chart.

The last 18 months have seen Chapman perform shows and tour across Europe, North America, South America and Canada at venues and events including Goldrush Festival, CRSSD Festival, Parklife, Hideout, Snowboxx and Fabric. This summer, his Ibiza shows included a debut at DC10 for Paradise, as well as shows with Elrow and ABODE at Amnesia, Solardo Sounds at Hi, and Cuckoo Land at Ibiza Rocks.

Alongside his DJ career, Chapman runs his own label, Resonance Records, which has become a respected platform for underground house music. It has released music from the likes of CamelPhat, Solardo, wAFF, Richy Ahmed, Detlef, Mark Jenkyns, George Smeddles and more.

Bucks Music Group’s Director Creative A&R, Sarah Liversedge Platz, said: “We have been working with Max for a while, and we’re delighted to be able to do this deal to take that relationship further. He’s an exciting talent that has been working hard for a number of years now, and the interest around him has grown and grown. We’re ready to help him develop as an artist and nurture his career.”
