Warner Music-owned dance label Spinnin’ Records has announced a good old rejig at the top of the company which will see Roger De Graaf and Ewout Swart become co-presidents.
De Graaf co-founded the label and has been its CEO since Warner bought the business in 2017. The executive rejig means that he will now be able to focus on artist relations and creative projects while Swart will be responsible for operational matters as well as, and I quote, "global acceleration". My very favourite kind of acceleration!
They will both report to Warner's President of International for recorded music Simon Robson, as well as its EVP Global A&R And Marketing for dance music Bart Cools.
The latter says: “I’ve worked closely with Roger and Ewout since we acquired Spinnin’ and they’ve done a stellar job at bringing the company under the Warner Music umbrella without sacrificing the independence and unique culture that makes it such a special label. As dance music goes from strength to strength, they’ve ensured Spinnin’ is the first choice for discerning DJs and producers".
Artists Spinnin’ Records has worked with over the years include Afrojack, Bingo Players, Cheat Codes, Don Diablo, Fedde Le Grand, Kriss Kross Amsterdam, KSHMR, Martin Garrix, Martin Solveig, Nicky Romero, Oliver Heldens, Sam Feldt, Sander Van Doorn and Timmy Trumpet.
