AOMG is an independent South Korean record label led by Jay Park and Simon Dominic. AOMG is an acronym that stands for "Above Ordinary Music Group" or "Always On My Grind."[1][2]

History[edit]

Although the group is nowadays more well known as the Korean hip-hop label, the name AOMG originally comes from the "Art of Movement". The "Art of Movement" is a Seattle-based B-Boying group which Jay Park joined in 2003 with members such as Dial Tone, Junior, and Cha Cha Malone. Jay Park founded AOMG in late September 2013, and he initially signed composer Jun Goon, singer, and producer Gray, and Cha Cha Malone, a producer and dancer with Jay Park's dance crew Art of Movement.[1] The label had its launch party on October 10, 2013, at "The A" in Seoul with Ben Baller as the host.[3] The same month, the label released its first album, Gray's mini-album, Call Me Gray.[4]

In March 2014, Simon Dominic announced that he had joined AOMG as co-CEO several months after his departure from his former label Amoeba Culture.[5] Artists Elo, Loco, Ugly Duck, DJ Wegun, DJ Pumkin, and Hoody joined AOMG over the next two years.[6]

In January 2016, South Korean media company CJ E&M announced that it had formed a strategic partnership with AOMG.[2] CJ E&M said in a statement that it would "support" AOMG with distribution and marketing, while AOMG would continue to control its music.[7] (Note: As of October 2016, CJ E&M is the exclusive distributor of AOMG's releases excluding those of Loco, handled by LOEN Entertainment.)
