Alex Da Kid has found a home. The super-producer has inked a deal to bring his label to Interscope Records.
The Grammy-winning hitmaker, who’s applied his platinum touch to artists including Eminem and Rihanna (“Love the Way You Lie”), B.o.B (“Airplanes”), Diddy-Dirty Money (“Coming Home”), and Dr. Dre (“I Need a Doctor”), has announced KIDinaKORNER as the name of his newly-minted label, which was formerly titled Wonderland Music.
The first offering will be a solo album from singer-songwriter Skylar Grey, who has written and appeared on many of Alex’s hits. Her buzz single “Dance Without You” will be released in full on June 7.
“Developing artists that influence and shape popular culture in an authentic way has always been a huge goal of mine,” said the London-born producer. “Jimmy Iovine understands that and has been a true mentor to me over the past year. I look forward to continuing all the success we have already had together.”
Iovine, Chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M, welcomed him to the family, also home to Eminem, Lady Gaga, and U2. “Interscope has always been committed to great producers, and I think in Alex we found one that will be around for a long time.”
