Insomniac has signed a global administration deal with Sony Music, inking a partnership that has the look of watershed moment for the electronic music powerhouse.

Billboard reports the deal entails royalty collection between the two companies as well as collaborative A&R schematics. The partnership arms Insomniac Music Group with an established administration partner to expand the services they provide to producers and songwriters, like in-house accounting and a new online royalty portal.

"It’s an honor to work with Sony, who is the world’s largest publishing company," explained Insomniac founder and CEO Pasquale Rotella in a press statement to Billboard. "Expanding our reach to support Insomniac Music Group artists to showcase their work strategically worldwide is a top priority. I’m excited for this new partnership and know we can support songwriters in a unique and powerful way."
