All Around the World (also known as AATW) was a British record label originating in Blackburn, United Kingdom. It was a subsidiary of Universal and has had success with artists such as N-Trance, Armin van Buuren, Cascada, Dannii Minogue, Lost Frequencies, Scooter, N-Dubz, Skepta, Starley, Yolanda Be Cool, and many more. The label also ran four music TV channels; Clubland TV, and three Now Music-branded channels - Now 70s, Now 80s and Now 90s, all of which are now ran by Universal.


All Around the World was founded in Blackburn by Cris Nutall and Matt Cadman in 1991.[citation needed] Throughout the 1990s, AATW established an abundance of British electronic music acts including Love Decade, 2 Funky 2, Bus Stop, Porn Kings and N-Trance - who achieved a number two UK single with their track "Set You Free" on the label in 1995.

The 2000s saw the label expand with the signing and development of artists such as Flip & Fill, Ultrabeat, Cascada, Dannii Minogue, Scooter, Darren Styles, N-Dubz, Skepta and many more. During the early 2000s, AATW also founded the long-standing Clubland compilation album series, as well as various other branded compilation titles released in partnership with UMTV/ UMOD. Other compilation series' included Rock the Dancefloor, Floorfillers, Ultimate Club Anthems, Love2Club, 100% Chilled, Ultimate NRG and Dance Mania.

In March 2008, AATW organised a series of Clubland arena events, followed by a second tour, Clubland Live 2, which took place in December 2008 and a third in 2010.[1]

In 2017, AATW founders Cris Nutall and Matt Cadman sold the record label and Clubland branding to Universal. They have since went on to create Xploded, a new record label.

Since 2021, All Around the World Productions have ceased distributing new music and artists, and the TV Channels broadcasting transferred fully into the hands of Universal.

Television channels[edit]

On 28 January 2008, All Around the World launched their own TV channel, Clubland TV. The channel broadcasts official music videos and acts as a platform for emerging dance and pop music artists as well as featuring programmes focused around bygone eras. Primarily the channel broadcasts dance music videos.[citation needed]

All Around the World also owned three other music TV channels, branded in partnership with Now Music.
