Norwegian web-site 730.no and music industry journal FaroJournalen report that Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel S. Eriksen aka Stargate, the highly successful NYC-based production team, are joined by hip-hop mogul/icon Jay-Z as the three create a shiny new label christened StarRoc.

Eriksen and Hermansen relocated their studio from Manhattan to Jay-Zs Roc The Mic studios, and now the two take it to the next level by forming a new company.

Over the last few years, Stargate have written and produced a number of Billboard hits for such high profil artists as Beyonce Knowles, Rhianna and Ne-Yo.
