Big Noise partners with Commission Music
In recognition of a shared ethos and commitment to both entrepreneurial independence and artistic integrity, Commission Records aligns with Big Noise for a newly minted partnership.
Home to a bevy of multiplatinum hip-hop trailblazers, Commission will now project its vision to the widest audience possible via Big Noise’s extensive resources as a multi-faceted media company with reach in recordings, publishing, e-sports and live festival properties. The deal includes equity purchase as well as significant funding for marketing, promotion, staff expansion and infrastructure. Under this alliance, Commission Founder and C.E.O. Anthony Martini will implement his proven tactics to develop business opportunities for both partners, integrating into a collective culture.
Evidencing the success of their approach, Martini’s company quietly arrived as an urban chart share leader in 2018, placing ahead of heavyweights like Roc Nation, 300 Entertainment, and HITCO, to name a few. Not to mention, roster successes span five platinum records, five gold records, six consecutive Top 10 urban records, and 4 billion streams worldwide to date.
While several suitors jockeyed to land the indie powerhouse, ultimately Commission CEO, Anthony Martini found kindred spirits in Big Noise as a company built for artists by artists. With founders like C.E.O. Nick Gross who created an ecosystem of innovation at Gross Labs, his entertainment and creative shop. He and his team have created various resources specifically designed to support musicians and creatives including the Noise Nest, a brand new, 5,000 square foot state-of-the-art recording studio in Hollywood, Big Noise Live to support their talent in creating unparalleled events, Rogue E-Sports, various podcasts featuring top talent, and more. Gross has also produced music for everyone from Ariana Grande to Wiz Khalifa and drums for Half the Animal, while Head of A&R John Feldmann went from founding punk legends Goldfinger to producing platinum hits for 5 Seconds of Summer, Disturbed, and more. As well as the company’s President Jon Cohen who notably co-founded Vagrant, launching the careers of The 1975, Dashboard Confessional, Edward Sharpe, and more and also ran recorded music for BMG for three years in North America.
