Female MC Amplify Dot signs with EMI/Virgin Records
June 13, 2012
UK rapper Amplify Dot yesterday signed a major album deal with EMI/Virgin Records, becoming the first female MC to do so since Ms Dynamite, whose own history making album 'A Little Deeper', was released 10 years ago this month.
Having featured on Mikey J's 'Rock the Mic' along with the likes of Lady Leshurr, Mz Bratt and RoxXxan as well as Tinchy Stryder's female version of 'Game Over', A.Dot released her EP 'Short Back & Sides' independently through her own label AmpedUp Music in February of this year. The 7 track EP, which was distributed through Ditto Music, is apparently what caught the attention of A&R label bosses with EMI eventually winning the battle for her signature. It's professional production, unique storytelling and refreshing lyrics showcasing that she undoubtedly has the quality to match her relentless work rate.
'Short Back & Sides' can be brought from iTunes here - http://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/short-back-and-sides/id507093673
Congratulations to A.Dot and we look forward to her major label releases!
