Actor Ansel Elgort is the newest addition to the Island Records roster, Billboardhas learned.
Representatives for Island Records confirmed the signing of Ansel Elgort. The Fault In Our Stars and Divergent star, known in the dance world as Ansolo, signs with the label –that’s home to Nick Jonas and Fall Out Boy– as a DJ-producer after releasing several remixes through Swedish House Mafia alumSteve Angello’s Size Records, appearing at Electric Zoo and scaling the Beatport charts with debut single “Unite” in 2014.
Speaking with Billboard in January, Elgort, who is representing by CAA, addressed the stigma that sometimes comes with crossing over from movies to music. “I’m going to battle with credibility my whole career as Ansolo, because people will just say I’m an actor trying to get into this,” he said. “But I have no need to get into this. My acting is going great. I don’t want to make more money. If I did, I wouldn’t be making groovy house music.”
