Downtown Music Publishing Signs Deal With Abood Music, One Of Jamaican Music's Leading Publishing Catalogues
New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Includes Songs Recorded by Pitbull, Snoop Dogg, Major Lazer and Leading Dancehall/Reggae Acts

Downtown Music Publishing has signed a worldwide publishing agreement with Abood Music, the publishing arm of Jamdown Entertainment. The agreement was announced today by Downtown Music Publishing's UK MD Roberto Neri.

Abood Music counts over 7,000 songs in its catalogue, including reggae and dancehall hits from some of the biggest artists and producers in Jamaican popular music, including RDX, Bounty Hunter, Cordell 'Scatta' Burrell as well as works from Randy and Jermaine Jackson. Its parent company, Jamdown, was founded by Othman Mukhlis, former manager of reggae legends Black Uhuru.

One of the leading catalogues in the Jamaican music community, Abood Music credits include Nina Sky's BMI Award-winning "Move Ya Body" (#4 on Billboard Hot 100) and Pitbull's debut release "Culo" -- both of which sample of Cordell 'Scatta' Burrell's "Coolie Dance" -- as well as cuts on albums by Snoop Dogg, T.I., Lil' Kim and Major Lazer.

Both Downtown and Abood are ecstatic about the partnership. "We have real good momentum right now and some very exciting things in the pipeline," says Othman Mukhlis. "I very much look forward to working with Downtown -- we are a good match!"

"Othman has built up an impressive reputation and catalogue," remarks Neri. "We feel privileged to be the first publisher to represent Abood globally and for Downtown to be his new home."

The addition of the Abood Music catalogue is the first agreement signed by the Company's UK office since the acquisition of Eagle-I Music. In the past two years, Downtown has opened offices in London, Amsterdam, Nashville and Los Angeles, effectively linking disparate music markets to develop new publishing opportunities for their artists. With a diverse roster that includes the likes John Lennon & Yoko Ono, Randy Newman, Mötley Crüe, Hans Zimmer and One Direction, Downtown continues to establish itself as one of the global publishing industry's leading lights.
