WondaGurl signs multi-platinum Canadian producer FORTHENIGHT to Wonderchild, a joint-venture with Sony/ATV Music Publishing and Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack Publishing.
“FORTHENIGHT has always been one of the talented young producers from Toronto, and it has been amazing working with him these past few years. I am excited to officially welcome him to Wonderchild and continue our relationship,” said WondaGurl.
Charles Jr. Ocansey, also known as FORTHENIGHT, is a Diamond Certified, Grammy-winning Canadian-based producer signed to Wondagurl’s label imprint, Wonderchild, a joint-venture with Sony/ATV Music Publishing and Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack Publishing.
FORTHENIGHT was raised in Brampton, Ontario, a suburb city near Toronto and first started producing in his parent’s basement at the age of 15, chopping samples from old records and experimenting with unique sounds. In 2018, the producer released his first sample pack, which received praise from Wondagurl and other top producers in the industry. Shortly after, he released another pack which got him introduced to Frank Dukes by his Kingsway team. By creating these distinctive sample packs with his signature “night vibe” sounds, FORTHENIGHT was able to land various major label placements with Bad Bunny, Don Toliver, Dave East, Killy, 88GLAM, D-Block Europe, J Stone, Lancey Fouxx and many more.
In 2021, the multi-talented producer obtained a Grammy award and RIAA 24x Latin Diamond certification for his work on Bad Bunny’s ‘YHLQMDLG’ for Best Latin Pop or Urban Album. He’s also been awarded an RIAA Gold certification for Don Toliver’s ‘Heaven or Hell’ and more recently a BRIT Certified Silver Album award for his work on D-Block Europe’s ‘The Blue Print — Us Vs. Them’.
FORTHENIGHT often takes inspiration from horror film scores and dark soundscapes, underscoring the meaning of his moniker. With his ability to create one-of-a-kind grooves mixed with mysterious sounds and melodies, his attention to detail in his sound design process is what makes him so special.
