Electronic music duo Sofi Tukker re-signed their publishing deal with Third Side Music.

"Extremely happy to be extending our relationship with Sofi Tukker," said Jeff Waye, Thirds Side Music co-founder in a statement. "It’s rare to find a band that can hit all the marks and make incredibly unique and globally appealing music. It doesn’t hurt that they themselves and the team around them are some of the nicest and best in the biz. Having won over ever growing audiences around the world on their Treehouse tour, we’re excited to hear what’s coming next."

Sofi Tukker have been nominated for two Grammys including best dance recording with their song "Drinkee" and best dance/electronic album with Treehouse.

"Third Side is an integral part of our team, a part of our family," said the duo in a statement. "They have been so great to us and they work as hard as we do -- what more can you ask for? They are also the kindest, best people. Seriously -- what more could you ask for?"

Sofi Tukker are known for their song "Best Friend" that was used during the Apple keynote iPhone X unveil. The tracked brought them to Hot 100 for the first time.  

They spoke to Billboard about watching the ad while shooting the music video in Ibiza. 

"I had the keynote on in the background," said Tucker Halpern. "We went through the whole thing and nothing came up so we were like, 'Aw, whatever. Maybe it’s not a big deal.' And then [Apple] had this big surprise at the end like, 'Just kidding, we’re not done! We have a brand new phone!' And they started playing our song, and literally I was like, [yells] 'SOPHIE!'
