The group has joined Ultra Records and Sony B1 Recordings as they take their music around the world.
Congratulations are in order for GOODLUCK. The local dance group have had a string of hits over the past few years and have solidified themselves as one of the best dance groups to ever come out of South Africa. However, as with any music act, the group wanted the rest of the world to hear their music as well. Now, after months of touring Europe and the USA, the group have signed an international record contract with Ultra Music Records in America and Sony B1 Recordings in Germany – labels that house dance phenomenons such as Calvin Harris, Steve Aoki, Deadmau5, Benny Benassi and KYGO.
The signings are a massive step for the group who will be releasing their hit single ‘Thinking About You’ as their debut single in these territories on the 31st of March 2017. The track, already a huge hit here at home in South Africa with a #1 on radio in 2016, will be released alongside a pacey dance floor remix from Girls Love DJs & Boris Smith. While it is still unclear if the group will release their new album ‘The Nature Within’ internationally or take a single-by-single approach, what is clear is that the world is noticing what we have known for a very long time – that there is something incredibly special about GOODLUCK.
Ultra Music Records had this to say, ‘GoodLuck are something of a phenomenon in South Africa, having clocked up 8 chart Number 1’s in the past four years and amassed over 4 million Spotify plays of their ground-breaking, multi-instrumental sounds. ‘I’ve Been Thinking About You’ combines sublime vocals with subtle, progressive drums and piano chords – playing with offbeat rhythms and electronic samples as it gathers intensity.’
International Management, Row Weber & Marcello Pagin said, “Working in the entertainment industry for more than 19 years I know when we have something special. This project will make waves beyond Cape Town and South Africa. Glad they chose us to be part of this ride. GoodLuck’s performance is one that has opened the proverbial Pandora’s box on what audiences around the world will be demanding in years to come. Electronic music has never felt more real.”
The group took to their official Facebook page to announce the news. “Here is our big news… We are super excited to announce that we have just signed our first global record deal here in the USA with Ultra Music and Sony Germany!! Our first single ‘Ive Been Thinking About You’ will drop worldwide this Friday 31 March. We have been working towards this our whole lives and have never been so excited!”
