It’s rare that managers reach celebrity status in the music world, but Moe Shalizi is on top of that list in the dance music world. As the manager of Marshmello, Jauz, Ookay, Slushii, Ghastly, Sikdope, and Southside of 808 Mafia, he’s been featured on countless media outlets and even Forbes Magazine.
Shalizi made headlines last month when word broke that he would be leaving his long-time firm at Red Light Management in favor of starting up his own firm. That rumor was confirmed recently via automated email responses from employees at his new company, The Shalizi Group.
The automated responses read as follows: “Starting Monday, December 17th I can be reached at my new email address firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Although Shalizi had been with Red Light since 2015, EDM.com revealed that the strategic move was long in his back pocket. In January of 2017, he registered The Shalizi Group Inc. as a domestic corporation in the state of Nevada.
An official announcement is expected soon.
