Born in Berlin during the final days of the 90s, VANDIT Records has proved to be one of the most cutting-edge and enduringly innovative labels of the electronic music generation. Set up by visionary producer/DJ Paul van Dyk, initially as a means of securing his own musical catalogue, it has also provided the safeguard of his and many other likeminded artists’ creative freedoms.
Shunning the quantity-over-quality approach taken by others, its launch philosophy was ‘there’s no art without artists’ – an ideal it maintains every bit as firmly to this day. At the start of the 2000s VANDIT made immediate waves, releasing a string of now established club classics, Nu-NRG’s ‘Dreamland’, The Thrillseekers’ ‘Synaesthesia’ and Jose Amnesia’s ‘The Eternal’ to name but a few.
Now approaching an unbroken decade and a half of releases, the label is a highly regarded bastion on Europe’s electronic music label landscape. With an artist talent pool of established names, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Filo & Peri, Judge Jules, Alex M.O.R.P.H and PvD himself among them, it’s also has a thriving hotbed of gifted younger blood names. The likes of Maarten De Jong, Las Salinas and Shato & Paul Rockseek are also regularly to be found smashing the label’s VANDIT Nights events and weekly VANDIT Knights radio shows.
