DigitalMusicNews reports that BMG will acquire 100% of music publisher Talpa Music. According to the report, BMG and Talpa Music Holding have signed the deal, which is expected to close later this month. Talpa music specializes in EDM and owns 37,000 songs, including ones by Tiësto, Afrojack, Fedde Le Grand, Nicky Romero, and Laidback Luke. Overall, Talpa’s catalog includes more than 500,000 songs. “This is a very significant acquisition of one of Europe’s leading music publishers. At one stroke it not only further builds our position in the Benelux, making us the leading publisher of local repertoire, it gives us access to leading international songwriters, particularly in the EDM category,” said Hartwig Masuch, CEO of BMG.
