Sony Music Entertainment has announced a partnership with EDM label/publisher/management company Ultra Music. As part of the agreement, Patrick Moxey, President of Ultra Music, is named President of Electronic Music for Sony Music Entertainment. In this newly created global role, he reports directly to Sony Music CEO Doug Morris.

The deal also creates a number of strong ties between the two companies, increasing opportunities for collaboration between Sony Music and Ultra artists.

Commenting on the deal, Morris stated, "We are excited to expand our presence in Electronic Dance Music through this new global partnership with Ultra Music. Patrick Moxey is a fantastic music executive and a proven hitmaker in this important genre."

Moxey stated, "This is an exciting deal for Ultra and I have a partner in Doug Morris and Sony Music who understands our business and shares our ethos.
