Following the announcement of a relaunch, American record label Astralwerks has announced three new signings to their star-studded roster. The label, which has won the hearts of music fans across the globe with artists such as Kraftwerk, The Chemical Brothers, deadmau5, Fatboy Slim, Porter Robinson, is now adding Illenium, Marshmello and Axwell Λ Ingrosso.
The signings are some of the first under new General manager Toby Andrews. Astralwerks has also seen some new editions in marketing, A&R and Creative direction roles. The moves are an indicator of Andrews’ adamance on striving toward success, since taking the reigns in May.
Speaking to the press about the new artist & management signings Andrews said,
“We’re incredibly excited that artists of the caliber of Illenium and Axwell Λ Ingrosso have decided to join the Astralwerks family. As we renew our focus on the label’s historic strengths in dance and electronic music, these artists reflect where we are headed in the coming years. Each and every member of our new Astralwerks team has a true depth of experience in the genre and are obsessive about the music. Their years of experience coming from all corners of the world prove that we are a forward-thinking and global label, poised to provide our artists with a high level of support as we continue our label’s legacy as a frontline label for the best and most cutting-edge artists in the dance and electronic music world.”
Running an ever-expanding operation, Andrews has also made a number of other personnel moves. Jeremy Vuernick, Senior Vice President of A&R at Capitol Music Group, was brought on to head the A&R department. He continues to work with CMG’s Ryan Murphy, as well as Natalie Dodge, formerly of Big Beat, and Sergio Vega, from William Morris Endeavor. Joe Mortimer (Kygo, Snakehips) is named Creative Director, with Jin Ju Lee (TMWRK) as administrative assistant to Astralwerks.
