Austin Daboh has been announced as executive vice president of Atlantic Records UK, as Warner Music UK CEO Tony Harlow welcomes a "cultural pioneer" to the company's major workforce.

The former BBC Radio 1Xtra and Spotify executive joins the Atlantic Records UK team after being head of editorial, UK & Ireland at Apple music.

Daboh will be responsible for signing and developing homegrown talent, as well as working closely with Atlantic US to nurture its Black music scene into the UK.

Tony Harlow, Warner Music UK CEO, said: "I’m happy to welcome an exec of Austin’s calibre to the Warner Music UK family.

"He’s already played a pivotal role in shaping the UK music landscape through his work in radio and with the DSPs, and he has the instincts and connections not just to attract outstanding artists, but to be a cultural pioneer."

Daboh reacted to this exciting news, saying: "Atlantic is one of the most culturally important labels out there, with some of the world’s most authentic and unique artists. I’m excited to be joining the company as it begins the next chapter in its legendary history.

"I’ve had the good fortune to work at three amazing companies – the BBC, Spotify, and Apple Music – and my experiences there have prepared me well to step into the major label world, which has always been my dream."
