The shortlist for the Music Producers Guild Awards 2013 has been released and we’re proud to announce that our very own Sarah Liversedge Platz has been nominated for the ‘Unsung Hero’ category.

As the Director of A&R here at Bucks Music Group, Sarah works on attracting, developing and signing new talent, as well as overseeing the creative team.

She is also the co-owner and Managing Director of BDi Music and co-founder/co-director of The Movement; a collaboration with Producer/Writer Jake Gosling, nurturing and developing young, urban talent.

The nomination came as surprise but is well deserved and the ‘unsung hero’ title is very fitting.

It’s great to see Sarah getting recognition for the vast amount of work that she puts in under the radar.


Jake Gosling has also been nominated for the MPG Awards. He’s up for UK Producer of The Year, a category sponsored by the Brit Awards.

Jake has worked with artists such as WileyPaloma FaithOne Direction and Ed Sheeran, with whom he produced and co-wrote the 5 times platinum number one album ‘+’, including the chart topping ‘Lego House’.

Explaining The Movement, his joint publishing venture with Sarah, Jake says, “It’s a creative platform to develop as a writer and feel like you aren’t on your own. I know what it’s like to not know where to go or how to get your music heard.”

It seems to be this humble approach and raw talent that has got Jake so far in the industry, alongside his dedication and sheer hard work, making him truly deserving of this awards nomination.


Matthew Herbert has been shortlisted in the Remixer of the Year Awards category.

The composer, who is also Head of Accidental Records and Director of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, is up alongside Jamie XX and UNKLE.

Herbert’s most well known for his work on ‘One Pig’, a piece for which he worked with the a pig, recording and remixing the sounds of its life, from being born, raised and killed , to being eaten from a plate.


The MPG Awards take place on the 7th February at Café de Paris in London.
