Multiple GRAMMY award winning mixing engineer MixedByAli brings NoName Recordings to Interscope Geffen A&M Records.

Interscope Geffen A&M today announced a partnership with NoName Recordings, the label founded by GRAMMY award winning mixing engineer Derek “MixedByAli” Ali and his longtime business partner Dan Maynard.

Under the new deal Derek and Dan will sign and develop talent in partnership with Interscope.

Derek has contributed to some of the most important recordings of the last decade and has developed a keen eye for talent,” said Nicole Wyskoarko, Executive Vice President/Co-Head of A&R at IGA. “He and Dan are innovators in the tech space and we are big believers in the label they are building.”

NoName Recordings was launched in the fall of last year with a single from Baltimore artist Malik Moses.

The first release under the new deal is the June 8th release of “Jealousy” from rapper/singer and Long Beach native Shady Blu, a track produced by yaboyNois, Distinkt beats, & DJ Swish.

MixedByAli has worked with some of the most acclaimed artists in the world, mixing tracks for Kendrick Lamar, Nipsey Hussle, Roddy Ricch, Mac Miller, SZA and many others.

He has been nominated for six GRAMMY Awards and has won three for his work on Lamar’s albums 'Damn.' and 'To Pimp A Butterfly' and for the 2019 Record of the Year “This is America” by Childish Gambino.

Ali and Maynard have already built one successful venture together, EngineEars, a music tech platform that provides tools to audio engineers to improve their workflow and build their businesses.

Interscope has proven to be an amazing home for entrepreneurs,” said Ali. “We are looking forward to working closely with John Janick, Steve Berman, Nicole Wyskoarko, Tim Glover and the entire team as we create opportunities for NoName artists.”

Tim Glover, EVP of A&R at Interscope commented: “Together Derek and Dan form a powerful creative partnership, one which is already developing a roster of great artists. We’re looking forward to working closely to launch and nurture this new talent.”
