Spinnin' Records is a Dutch independent record label,[1] founded in 1999 by Eelko van Kooten and Roger de Graaf.[2][3]


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.[4] Together with Roger de Graaf, a former employee of the specialist dance retailer Rhythm Import, van Kooten formed Spinnin' Records in 1999.[4] Initially they concentrated on the pressing of vinyl for artists.[4]

Besides their main imprint, Spinnin' Records hosts approximately forty sub-labels, the majority linked to a specific artist. The label provides A&R, management, publishing and (digital) marketing for artists they have under contract.[4] Notable sublabels include Heldeep Records (run by Oliver Heldens), Musical Freedom (run by Tiësto), Spinnin' Deep and Spinnin' Premium. All of the sublabels focus on various sorts of dance and electronic music.[5]
