(AllHipHop News) Cash Money Records is expanding into electronic music, by signing The Stafford Brothers to the label.
The Stafford Brothers, who hail from the Gold Coast in Australia, are the first ever electronic music group to sign to the Cash Money Records imprint.
“Every artist that we were keen to collaborate with seemed to be part of the YMCMB family,” said 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.”
The group, which consists of Matt and Chris Stafford, have traveled all over the world, performing with groundbreaking electronic acts like The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers and others.
In addition to their own reality show on Fox in Australia, The Stafford Brothers have over 50 releases under their belts.
“The Stafford Brothers blew me away with their energy, superb production skills and strong remixes,” Bryan “Birdman” Williams said. “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.”
The Stafford Brothers are signed to Cash Money Records through a joint venture with company CHM.
“Cash Money Records is a brand that is synonymous with success in the pop culture landscape,” said Nima Nasseri of CHM. “We’re excited to build a new venture between CHM and Cash Money with the Stafford Brothers, leading the way in this new era of commercial dance music.”.
The first single by The Stafford Brothers for Cash Money Records is titled “Hello,” and will feature label mates Lil Wayne and Christina Milian.
