Ron Trent signs to Wise Music Group23 May 2023 - Press release
Wise Music Group is very happy to announce the signing of Ron Trent to Campbell Connelly in an exclusive worldwide songwriter agreement.
DJ/Producer Ron Trent, rooted in the dance music world for over 29 years, is known for producing and playing an eclectic range of music.
Ron Trent comments: “In this business partnerships are everything. I am looking forward to a great alliance with Wise music and their creative forces to forge forward into more powerful foundational ventures.”
Marcus Wise, Wise Music Group’s CEO says: “It’s an honour to be representing the ground-breaking artist Ron Trent. I’ve been a long-time fan of his music and I’m excited by the new creative direction Ron’s music is taking. We’re all looking forward to working with this versatile and innovative composer and musician.”
Raised in Chicago’s early underground music scene in the 1980’s Trent transitioned from Disco into House. He began his journey studying and collecting records from a young age, taking cues from his father who ran a record pool in the late 70’s. After becoming a respected DJ in his early teens, this gave Trent the confidence to embark on his own productions in the mid-80’s, culminating his first release (at the age of 15!) of the highly recognised and internationally acclaimed classic ‘Altered States’.
Under his new project WARM, Ron’s recent album ‘What Do The Stars Say To You’ brings forth artists he thinks of as part of his DNA, known for fusing styles and worlds into unique creations and having them share their creative energy through the frameworks he builds for them.
Jean-Luc Ponty, Ivan Conti & Alex Malheriros (of Azymuth), Khruangbin and Gigi Masin are all featured collaborations in what feels like an expansion of the adventurous and luxurious albums that influenced his musical journey pre ‘Altered States’. The music, designed for harmonizing with spirit, nature and urban life, is a logical progression for an artist whose creativity and spirit has cemented his role as a shining force for his scene, his city and this music.
As reviewed by Crack magazine “What do The Stars Say To You is the sound of a modern master putting his mark on the music that raised him”.
