Founded in 1999 by Eelko van Kooten and Roger de Graaf, Spinnin’ Records is one of the world’s leading independent electronic music companies.
Just have a look at the songs released by the biggest artists to realize that most of them are or have already been related to the Dutch company.
Many of the artists you listen to have already released their music in Spinnin’ or sub-labels such as Musical Freedom (founded by Tiesto), Hexagon (founded by Don Diablo), Dharma (founded by KSHMR), Maximized (founded by Blasterjaxx) , Heldeep Records (founded by Oliver Heldens), Doorn Records (founded by Sander van Doorn), Cartel Recordings (founded by Kryder), etc.
Now the label will be part of an even larger group: the Warner Music Group.
The acquisition was completed in a deal worth more than $100 million and will make Spinnin’ grow even more.
Roger de Graaf, who will run the label as CEO, said:
“Spinnin’ has found the perfect home at Warner Music. Max, Stu, Bart, and the team really believe in our culture and commitment to artist development. They share our vision for growing Spinnin’ by creating even bigger opportunities for our artists and their music. It’s been an incredible journey so far and, as we look to the future, everyone at Spinnin’ Records would like to thank our close friend Eelko for everything he’s done for our company, artists, and industry. His partnership and leadership mean he will forever be part of the Spinnin’ family.”
For now we have to wait to see what the future holds for Spinnin ‘Records and to observe the changes that will arise with this acquisition.
