As VP Kamala Harris once said, ‘We did it Joe, We did it’. We at Spinnup are so excited to announce our 100th signing to UMG! Please join us in congratulating MD signing to UMG Denmark.
25-year-old Mohamad Danial was born and raised in the western part of Aarhus with Palestinian roots. Music – and especially hip hop – has always been a passion and part of MD’s life, rapping at a young age.
As a 13-year-old, MD had already started writing and producing music independently at rap schools in Aarhus, which later developed into the current Rap Academy. After his debut, MD took a long break (as we all know, life happens). After a break from music, the young rapper returned to his passion well over a year ago, recording a series of demos, which birthed the debut comeback single ‘Khabib’ with a feature from Aarhus rapper Papito – one of the frontrunners in the forward-thinking rap group I $ WAAL. The debut single was released by MD himself through us, and it was proven to be a success with over 180,000 streams on Spotify alone. The debut single clearly did not go unnoticed by Universal’s A&R team, offering the budding talent a record contract with Denmark’s largest record company.
The journey has only just begun for MD who is now ready to take the next steps in his professional career, which already offers more exciting music in the near future. A&R manager Chadi Alderbas says: “We have chosen MD as an artist because he is super productive, he explores music and dares to move out in styles that many rap artists would not normally do… right now we are working on releasing a track that will hit a larger target group of listeners and create a solid base for him, not only for now, but also in the future. We take one thing at a time, the journey has only just begun… ”
MD started just like you, uploaded his track to Spinnup and worked on his craft. So, who is to say you won’t be next? We have 100 of you signed to UMG and we won’t stop there.
