Spinnin' Records is a Dutch electronic music record label[1] founded in 1999 by Eelko van Kooten and Roger de Graaf.[2][3] In September 2017, Warner Music Group acquired Spinnin' Records for over $100 million.[4]

Background[edit]

Van Kooten is the son of former Dutch radio DJ and businessman Willem van Kooten, and initially worked in the publishing business of his father.[5] Together with Roger de Graaf, a former employee of the specialist dance retailer Rhythm Import, van Kooten formed Spinnin' Records in 1999.[5] In the beginning, they concentrated on the pressing of vinyl for artists.[5]

Spinnin' Records hosts 25 active sub-labels alongside their main imprint; the majority linked to a specific artist. The label provides A&R, management, publishing and (digital) marketing for artists they have under contract. The label used to promote songs without naming the artists in order to 'create a buzz'.[6]

Following the acquisition of Spinnin' by Warner Music Group, co-founder van Kooten left the company while de Graaf became the CEO.[7]
