The label collaborates with Belfast DJ and A&R Connor Coates.

Coates currently presents a dance radio show on Cool FM and also hosts a slot on BBC Radio 1.

He will work closely with EMI Co-President Jo Charrington, who was promoted to this role in 2017.

The imprint will focus on crossover dance records and be a home for established and emerging producers, Capitol says.

Coates also plans to expand the Lift Me Up brand with club nights, merchandise and special events.

In the US, Capitol recently partnered with Top Dawg Entertainment to sign up-and-coming artist Doechii.

Capitol’s partnership with TDE comes three months after Michelle Jubelirer assumed the role of Chair and CEO of Capitol Music Group (in December 2021).

“We are delighted to welcome Connor and his label to Capitol UK.”
