After some controversy Arthur parted ways with Simon Cowell’s record label Syco in 2014. In 2015, he signed a new deal with Columbia Records and released his second studio album, Back from the Edge, in 2016.

He then went on to re-sign with to Syco in the same year of 2016. In February 2021, Arthur signed with Columbia Records UK and Columbia Records Germany after Syco ceased operations.

Rob Waller, Founder and Programmer of the Margate Summer Series said, “It’s thrilling to announce a further mix of artists joining the series, these household names have had such a positive impact on the UK music industry, shaping their genres.

“We’re endeavouring to give our audiences unique shows and to have Leftfield & Orbital co-headlining will be mind-blowing, even more special with Orbital being local to Kent. We can’t wait to announce even more artists for this summer.”
