Having revived Arista Records as a frontline label last year, Sony Music in the US is now launching a new dance music focused imprint for the division to be called Last Nite.

The new imprint will be headed up by Arista’s SVP of A&R Matt D’Arduini and will launch with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Dom Dolla, Dynamo and Sigala on its roster.

Overall Arista boss David Massey says: “I am very excited that Arista is expanding with a new label whose roster represents a diverse and unique array of artists within the electronic space. Similar to our distinctive approach at Arista, Last Nite is laser-focused on artist relations and development”.

So that’s nice. For his part, D’Arduini is “thankful” for the new gig and the “opportunity to establish an innovative new electronic label”.
