When talking about Trance, the name Paul Van Dyk is bound to come up in the conversation. He is a legend and pioneer in the genre. He has been in the Electronic Music Scene for almost 30 years and continues to be a driving force within the community.
Paul Van Dyk started VANDIT records in 1999 and used the label to help establish such talent as; Giuseppe Ottaviani, Alex M.O.R.P.H, Josh Gabriel, and Gareth Emery just to name a few. He also used the platform to release his own ground-breaking albums. Now he is marking the 20th Anniversary of VANDIT with the launch VANDIT Next Generation, the label’s first ever sub-label.
“We’re two decades in to VANDIT, and we felt this was the right juncture to make this distinction. We want to clearly define what – over time – have become the two distinct tracks our artists are on. Musically, those producers already established will remain on VANDIT’s mainline label. The talent that Team VANDIT’s spotted, or those beginning to make names for themselves will start their journey through us on Next Generation. Investment is the key to all our futures, so the team’s aim through VANDIT Next GenDeration is to nurture that next wave of trance producer and see them on the right course”.Paul van Dyk
This is very exciting news! VANDIT was and is still a leading record label to expose so many phenomenally talented producers over the years and to have sub-label to bring in fresh, new talent is thrilling. The first releases from Next Generation will be from up and comers Steve Dekay, Jamie Walker, Aerotek, Aimoon, Jan Miller, Mhammed El Alami, Alex Write, and Casey Rasch. VANDIT Next Generation’s first single, “The Blooming Era” from Colombia’s Steve Dekay is out now.
This year is going to be extremely busy for the label. Summer launch releases will be premiering and available through online retailers and streaming outlets. Make sure to mark your calendars and check out the debuts of these rising stars of VANDIT Next Generation.
