In the late 1980’s when the music world was being transformed, entrepreneurs Gary Salzman & Joe Koppie formed Big Management, an innovative and revolutionary company. Todd Terry, Tony Humphries, Cher, Everything But The Girl, Ray Roc, Chris Willis, Jason Nevins, Tony Moran – these are just a few of the artists that Big Management has nurtured and managed to become superstars in the dance music world.
Over the years, Big Management has evolved into a full service music and entertainment company and has expanded it’s focus on premier talent management, promotion and marketing, A&R consulting, publishing, and assisting both independent and major labels with their entertainment projects.
Big Management is credited with being the first to make the DJ the artist and have multi-city DJ Tours, creating the mindset that the band is the artist – the guitar player, the drummer, the keyboard player, the bass player are the artists, as well as the singer, and that the DJ in this world is the band. Gary branched the gap between Dance Music and Pop, when connecting superstar Cher with their writers and producers to create the hit album “Believe”, and putting David Guetta and Chris Willis on Pop Radio with the Top 10 song “Love Is Gone”.
They have worked with the likes of Randy Jackson and his Dream Merchant 21 label, consulting with him and his artists to create some of the best music productions around today.
Currently, Big Management’s artist roster includes some of the finest talent in the world. Chris Willis is on full throttle with his productions, featuring on tracks with Marc Benjamin, Akon, Black Eyed Peas’ Apl De Ap, Joachim Garraud, Rave Radio, just to name a few. Up and coming New York vocalist Alicia Madison has multiple releases on Mixmash Records and productions with Laidback Luke, Promise Land, Moska, Revero, Denny Berland, Dehasse, and more. Trance singer/songwriter Seri is well known for her hit single “Love Rain Down” with Markus Schulz and “Gave Me” with Giuseppe Otaviani. Dehasse is an international DJ/Producer who has toured the world, playing popular festivals such as TomorrowLand, Global Dance Festival, and USC’s Freaknight. Look out for many more releases and events from all of our artists coming in 2014.
