20 years ago, dance music was gifted with the launch of Paul van Dyk’s record label VANDIT. Now, 2019 will be stapled as an extra special year as it marks the the beginning of VANDIT Next Generation; the first ever sub-label to hit since it started back in 1999.
VANDIT has gone above and beyond in shedding light to tons of artists over the years, and has no doubt cemented itself at the forefront of trance music. From giving first exposure to producers like Zaxx, to helping build up treasured talent including Giuseppe Ottaviani, Alex M.O.R.P.H., Josh Gabriel, Gareth Emery, and Lange among plenty more, VANDIT Next Generation is carrying on its vision wholeheartedly by focusing on discovering and establishing new trance geniuses.
“We’re two decades into 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 Generation is to nurture that next wave of trance producer and see them on the right course.” – Paul van Dyk
