ADA, Warner Music’s independent artist and label services division, has struck a distribution deal with Disruptive Records, an independent label that specialises in music tailored to specific moods from chill house to lofi hip-hop and which is also home to sub-label Andante Piano.
Disruptive Records was founded in 2020 and is home to artists including Wänderlost, LOEF and sad ezra. Andante Piano is home to artists such as Anna Sofia Nord, Kristoffer Wallin, Michiel Borstlap and Ron Adelaar. The label’s vision is to combine music, data and technology to discover new talent all over the world and provide a platform for all forms of creative artists.
Ivo Adelaar, owner of Disruptive Records says: “We're very happy to join forces with the ADA Music and Warner Music Benelux team for distribution and to help our artists reach their full potential globally. It’ll be an exciting step forward for Disruptive Records and Andante Piano to be part of a forward-thinking global music company, with its large network and an incredible major infrastructure. With this partnership, we’re looking forward to working together and to elevating our catalogue to reach new audiences and levels of success.”
Sander Stijnen, Head of ADA Benelux, A&R & Business Development, adds: “I’m delighted that Ivo chose ADA Music as a partner to further develop Disruptive Records. The label has seen impressive growth in its first year and we cannot wait to start collaborating on forthcoming releases!”
The deal is the latest in a series of partnerships signed by Stijnen since he took the top role at ADA Benelux last March. The division announced deals in 2020 with local labels including Absolute P, Big Top Amsterdam, BMKLTSCH RCRDS, Mattan Records, Noisesome Recordings, Out Of The Boks, Red Papula, Sancover and Waves Entertainment.
