Seriously, what’s going on at Spinnin’ Records lately? It was only a matter of hours ago that Julian Jordan announced his split from the Dutch record label, and Danish DJ/producer and Megaton label head Mike Hawkins has revealed that he will also end his partnership with them to pursue an alternative distribution strategy.
Hawkins had already alluded to his “new journey” on social media, then subsequently took to Facebook to issue the following statement:
Continuing on what I announced last week, I would like to inform fans, followers, friends and other supporters that Spinnin’ Records and I have mutually agreed to end our deal.
Following two very exciting and fruitful years for me it has been a key stone for my personal aspirations that I pursue wider and different creative paths in my music.
I have worked hard on several new records the past half year, and both parties have agreed that going forward we are perhaps not the right match for each other in terms of style and vision.
I’m extremely excited about the future and my new team which I can’t wait to tell you more about – and I feel more creative and inspired than ever, something which shows in the studio.
Thank you all so much for being with me through this journey, nothing but love for you!
Neither Jordan nor Mike Hawkins stood out as heavy hitters as far as Spinnin’ DJs go, but industry onlookers can’t help but wonder if each artist’s split indicates a greater trend which might spell trouble for the imprint.
