Sydney producer 18YOMAN signs multi-global deals, launches own production house
ARIA Award-winning Sydney producer 18YOMAN has considerably increased his profile by going into a partnership with high-profile US producers Take A Daytrip and launching his own boutique production and publishing house, Banquet Sounds.
Only 12 months ago, the proud Bununa man born Vin Goodyer released his first run of singles, this year making his mark with ‘Fireflies’, which he wrote, performed and mixed entirely by himself in his studio in Newtown.
Now he has co-produced two songs on US rapper and producer Kid Cudi’s latest album Man On The Moon 3.
This was the first result of the alliance he struck with the Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum Take A Daytrip, a production and songwriting duo composed of David Biral and Denzel Baptiste.
Their production on releases by Travis Scott, Lil Nas X, Kid Cudi, Sheck Wes, Dua Lipa and Post Malone were hits in the US.
The team-up includes a global publishing deal with TAD’s No Idle/Universal Publishing joint venture, and global co-management between No Idle and longtime Australian team One Day Entertainment and Calibre Music Management.
18YOMAN said: “I’m so thrilled to be involved with Take A Daytrip and No Idle.
“I feel David, Denzel and the whole team there have an incredibly similar attitude towards music as both creators and listeners.
“I can’t wait for what we do next.”
18YOMAN already zapped himself into the US scene, co-producing Portland rapper Daniyel’s single ‘Lost Ones’, as well as co-producing Emmy-winning actor turned rapper Jharrel Jerome’s debut single ‘For Real’, and linking with Internet Money to
co-produce ‘Dear Mama’ for LA-based TyFontaine.
On the local front, 18YOMAN was a key component in the writing and production behind Panic Force by rap group Triple One.
Last year he composed the score for the feature documentary film, Martha: A Picture Story which premiered at Tribeca Film Festival, and was nominated for an AACTA Award for Best Score in a Documentary Films.
He also composed the score for the ABC podcast series Little Yarns, which explores the diverse stories, languages, and countries of Indigenous Australia, which recently won Best Indigenous Podcast at the Australian Podcast Awards.
Meantime his company Banquet Sounds recently signed Sydney multi-instrumentalist/producer LEN20 aka Glenn Hopper.
LEN20’s debut production credit is alongside Take A Daytrip with Mary J Blige on her Amazon exclusive cover of the classic Wham! song ‘Last Christmas’
He also pulled co-production duties with Take A Daytrip, Dot The Genius, Wondagurl, and Mike Dean on the Kid Cudi track ‘4 Da Kidz’.
