Novaspace Lands Platinum Disc Award from Sirius XM
By Chad Davis
The globally recognized Swedish producer, Novaspace, just had one of his biggest years yet in the music industry. While the electronic artist was best known for his many 80’s cover songs and remixes, his music has really evolved over the past 12 months. Sirius XM honored Novaspace earlier this month with its annual platinum disc award for his production of TyDi‘s hit track, “Redefined,” featuring Melanie Fontana.
Originally from Stockholm, Novaspace really began to take the U.S. by storm this year. While Novaspace has a large European following — the largest of which resides in Sweden — the radio hit, “Redefined,” reached the 1 million selling / 6 million streaming mark in 2016. BPM — Sirius XM’s premiere dance-oriented station — named “Redefined” as the #1 song of 2015 and the #1 US Dance Airplay Record of the Year. Although you may know the artist from his iconic cover, “Time after Time:”
After signing on to Schulz Music Group this year, Danny Coggin — the man behind Novaspace — has really taken his music to whole new level. Currently based out of Los Angeles, Danny has been collaborating under the moniker Novaspace along with Schulz Music Group artist, Adina Butar, as well as fellow LA resident, Joseph Vincent. Novaspace has crossed many of the grey borders surrounding the world of Electronic Dance Music through his most recent productions, including “Cygnus,” “Stuck in the Shadows,” and “Since You’ve Been Gone.”
Novaspace was deeply honored by his award from Sirius XM, and had this to say during the ceremony:
“the last 18 months have been the most exciting of my life. Receiving this accolade – especially at this relatively early stage in my career – though has been the single greatest moment amongst them. I would like to thank TyDi for hearing something in my music that others at the time didn’t and all at Sirius XM for their support in helping turn ‘Redefined’ into such a hit. I’d also like to pass on my heartfelt appreciation to the Schulz Music Group crew for their belief and backing for everything I do. 2017 is going to be an exciting year. I’m looking forward to bringing you all a whole lot more of what you like!”
