LITTLEBIG was founded by Ned Beckett in the UK in 2004. Representing the world’s finest leftfield artists including Aphex Twin, Jon Hopkins, Autechre, Battles, Clark and 65daysofstatic, the agency – whilst primarily focusing on concert and tour booking – produces special events worldwide, and to its artists it also offers management and consultancy.
With offices in Brighton, Bristol and Berlin, the agency is thrilled to announce its expansion; it has opened a London office, under the banner NEWFORM.
Headed up by the agency’s newest agent-addition, Nathalie Blue, NEWFORM will offer agency, production and consultancy services to composers, musicians and ensembles working between genres and forms. It builds on the agency’s belief in supporting artist visions, with a special focus on the intersection between contemporary classical, electronic and visual culture. NEWFORM will produce and tour a range of unique artists and projects.
Nathalie Blue – who brings a wealth of expertise and experience from her years working in London agencies such as Primary Talent and Harrison Parrott – explains that NEWFORM will “offer a service which will allow us to curate, connect and promote the best in contemporary live performance”. And LITTLEBIG director Ned Beckett couldn’t be happier with the new entity; “I’m thrilled to welcome such a talented and experienced person to the LITTLEBIG family. Nathalie’s vision fits with our way of thinking, and how we look to evolve our work into new areas in the future.”
Further to announcing its new London office, there’s an incredibly exciting development for the LITTLEBIG Berlin headquarters too. The agency has teamed up with new Berlin-based agency, QUIETLOUD. After two decades operating as Backroom Entertainment, Alma Ernst and her fantastic 7-person team are beginning a new chapter under the QUIETLOUD banner, sharing office space, insight and expertise with LITTLEBIG.
This joint-venture between the two agencies has been formed to expand each organisations network and collaborative possibilities, continuing their shared passion and enduring dedication to developing the live careers of artists they truly believe in and are inspired by. Two cutting-edge organisations will now collaborate, and will continue building amazing live careers for artists, and special experiences for audiences.

Founded only last year and already six releases deep, Omnidisc now uncovers the mystery curator behind the label by releasing his latest EP – Danny Daze’s Miami. Danny emphasises that Omnidisc has always focused on the long game, choosing memorable music over the chart toppers. Having released music from the likes of Gunnar Haslam, Barker & Baumecker and Schmutz, and with upcoming releases by Legowelt, Tennis and more – Omnidisc is a platform for variety, while keeping a uniform sound.
The upcoming Miami EP sees Danny working with his friends (inc. Jagerverb and Kevin McPhee) as well as mastering the controls solo to provide five new tracks bouncing off the parameters of techno, electronic, house and funk. The penultimate track with Jagerverb, “Brav” works on pure hypnosis, as it orbits around itself for the 6min duration in cyclic synth rotation. One on regular repeat, easily.
Catch Miami dropping on 22nd February via Danny Daze’s Omnidisc label.
