Grammy-winning producer and songwriter Malay (real name James Ryan Ho) has launched a JV label partnership with BMG.
Britannia Row Recordings will sign, produce, develop and release acts across multiple genres. The name references Pink Floyd’s studio.
The label was co-founded by Malay and longtime manager Randy Cohen in 2016; engineer Manny Marroquin joined as a partner this year.
Malay said: “I’ve always dreamt of launching a label. It’s an honour to help artists realise their potential in the studio. Now, I get the opportunity to join them for the whole ride—from signing to marketing, release, and distribution. We found the perfect partner in BMG, and we’re excited to kick off an incredible new chapter together.”
The US producer’s credits include tracks by Frank Ocean, Zayn, Sam Smith, Alicia Keys, John Legend, and Alessia Cara
“Malay is one of the most influential producers and songwriters in music today,” said BMG. “His vision for Britannia Row is based on a shared philosophy of artist empowerment. It’s an honour to join forces with Malay, Manny, and Randy to bring this to life.”
Britannia Row Recordings first signing is The Parlor Mob.
