Launched in 2009, Aropa is the one and only imprint of Dutch producer/DJ Dash Berlin. It represents an eclectic high-quality outlet for Dash Berlin’s avant-garde productions and collaborations. The label is also a solid foundation for rising talent and established like-minded artists.
“The Aropa brand holds a deeper connotation too”, Dash revealed, “It also stands for the axiom of sharing art, inspiration and creativity”. The first release was the monster anthem ‘Man On The Run’, a prolific collaboration with fellow Armada artists Cerf, Mitiska & Jaren. The track sky rocketed to the top of the international Trance charts and received a prestigious nomination for ‘Best Trance Track’ at the annual Trance Awards. With the release of instant Dash Berlin classics such as the IDMA award-winning ‘Waiting’ feat Emma Hewitt, ‘Never Cry Again’ & ‘Janeiro’ feat Solid Sessions, the young label quickly established itself as one of the most promising labels in the Trance genre today.
