Paul van Dyk has announced a new label that focuses on up-and-coming trance artists.
A sub-imprint of his label VANDIT, the arrival of Next Generation marks the twentieth anniversary of the former.
With Steve Dekay, Jamie Walker and Aerotek among the first names on board, releases will land on Wednesdays fortnightly. See the full schedule below.
In a statement, van Dyk said, "We’re two decades in to VANDIT and we felt this was the right juncture to make this distinction. We want to clearly define what – over time – have become the two distinct tracks our artists are on. Musically, those producers already established will remain on VANDIT’s mainline label."
"The talent that Team VANDIT’s spotted, or those beginning to make names for themselves will start their journey through us on Next Generation," he continued. "Investment is the key to all our futures, so the team’s aim through VANDIT Next Generation is to nurture that next wave of trance producer and see them on the right course”.
