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.

Multimedia performance artist turned rapper and producer, Zebra Katz, shares his new video for recent single “Blk & Wht” today with NOWNESS. Directed by Ada Bligaard Søby (The Oh Sees, Ty Segall, Devendra Barnhart), the video illustrates the struggle of immigrants in search of sanctuary. Cast with refugees currently living in Denmark, the video was filmed in the forest surrounding Copenhagen. Over the course of two nights, these refugees bravely re-lived their experiences, detailing personal accounts in the hands of human traffickers while journeying from Africa, The Middle East, and throughout Europe.
In the spirit of the video’s powerful message, director Ada Bligaard Søby and Zebra Katz (aka Ojay Morgan) encourage viewers to donate to Pass The Crayon, a non-profit organization that fosters self-expression through art workshops for refugee children.
Revered by Rolling Stone for his kinetic live performances, Zebra Katz is in the midst of a solo world tour and will join the Gorillaz #Humanz Tour as lead support beginning July 28th through the end of 2017. The tour will hit cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Austin, Miami, and many more. See below for a full date listing.
“This film features the anxiety of immigrants fuelled by fear in search of sanctuary. Based on individual dark reports of confusion, rape, being in the hands of human traffickers, intense hunger and basically living your worst nightmare, I wrote the story for the video.” – Ada Bligaard Søby, Video Director
“Bass-and-kick club hit” – Rolling Stone
“An intoxicating beat that hits the ear like a drug”– FADER
“A standalone piece of art…lyrically abstract” – Pitchfork
“Sublimely sinister…one of the year’s most striking songs” – The New York Times
