Downtown has signed a worldwide deal with Grammy-nominated Dutch producer, artist, and songwriter Mr. Probz.
Mr. Probz’ catalog includes recent collaborations with Armin van Buuren and Anderson.Paak, as well as global smash hit single “Waves,” which was remixed by German DJ Robin Schulz and later released in a new version featuring T.I. and Chris Brown. The 2014 Grammy nominated single topped the charts in the US, UK, and all around Europe, achieving multi-platinum status around the globe.
“Downtown is like a family, sensitive and talented creative reinforcement with a global reach. Their strong Sync and Creative teams have a proven track record, and their creative approach is something I feel at home with. I am happy to be able to work with Downtown and be part of their growing international success.” - Mr. Probz
Mr. Probz’ upcoming EP, to be released in the Spring of 2018, features lead single “Space For Two,” that was most recently included on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist. The single and its accompanying London-set video was made in collaboration with Justin Gray (John Legend, Mariah Carey) and Johnny Black (Jessie J, Daughtry). Video above.
