Marshmello and his manager leave Red Light to create new firm
Marshmello‘s manager, Moe Shalizi, has no doubt been an integral part of the American DJ and producer’s rise to stardom. Since his rather recent debut in 2015, the masked producer has amassed millions of streams on collaborations with the likes of Anne-Marie, Khalid, and James Arthur; a far cry from the bass-heavy sounds his ‘Mellogang’ faithful came to love during his 2015 Jack Ü remix. 2018 has been yet another stunning year for Marshmello, who has delivered countless memorable live shows around the world and released a wide range of hits in varying styles. Going from the more signature sounds which first made him popular in his ‘Joytime II EP’, to more emotional sounds in his most recent collaboration with Bastille, ‘Happier. More recently, he has featured on Forbes‘ 30 under 30, an accolade which places him at the very top of the music industry.
His manager, More Shalizi, covers some of the biggest North American acts at Red Light, including the likes of Jauz, Slushii, Ghastly among many others. A report by Billboard suggests that Moe Shalizi is on the verge of breaking his relationship with Red Light and will take his artists with him to start a new project. Billboard does not reveal their source in their report and nothing official has been said yet.
Though Moe Shalizi’s acts represent an important roster for Red Light, they will still be able to rely on their other acts which include the likes of Tiësto, Odesza and Ferry Corsten among others.
Marshmello’s break out single ‘Alone’ has just surpassed 1 billion views on YouTube, be sure to celebrate by reliving the official music video below.
