Ultra Music was very pleased to announce yesterday that they have signed Calgary’s own Raghav to their label; currently home to some of the biggest international names in electronic music; including David Guetta, Deadmau5 and Calvin Harris.
“We are thrilled that Raghav has joined Ultra Music because he’s an incredibly talented artist and we look forward to making some hit records together,” said David Waxman, General Manager of Ultra Music.
Raghav and the Ultra team are busy prepping a July release of his single Fire across the US and the UK. The single, which can be found on his latest album The Phoenix, has already been certified gold in Raghav’s native Canada. A huge, international, summer smash in the waiting, Fire was written by Raghav and produced by Jim Beanz of Timbaland Productions who, alongside UK producer Labrinth, has collaborated on The Phoenix, which was released in Canada with Cordova Bay Records on April 10.
In keeping with Ultra’s reputation for delivering hit collaborations, such as Calvin Harris feat. Ne-Yo Let’s Go and Chris Brown feat. Benny Benassi Beautiful People, Raghav will share vocal duties on Fire with a very exciting, as yet to be announced, feature artist.
“After the crazy success of Fire in Canada, I’m looking forward to releasing my music across the US and Europe. From the outset, Ultra felt like the perfect home for me; artistically we’re on the same wavelength and they have such an incredible reputation for breaking great records. I can’t wait to announce the feature on Fire and for this new and very exciting chapter in my career,” said Raghav.
No stranger to success, many will already know Raghav from his multi award-winning debut album Storyteller, which produced four top ten hits in the UK alone and sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide.
More information on Fire is coming soon. In the meantime, Canadian fans can catch Raghav on tour this summer!
