Armada's Highlights of 2012
This year has brought you a musical diversity greater than ever before. 2012 was one big musical fusion, with artists diversifying their sound and surprising us all. Armada Music embraces the new EDM movement and next generation of music lovers, clubbers and producers, without forgetting our roots. We look forward to another year of musical energy and progression, but not before we reflect upon 2012’s successes!
In 2012, we served you the highly anticipated artist albums of Markus Schulz, Ashley Wallbridge, Cerf, Mitiska & Jaren, Emma Hewitt, Alex M.O.R.P.H., Matt Darey, Tenishia, Chicane, Dash Berlin, Andy Moor and Susana. The past 12 months also brought you the compilations of Armin van Buuren, 16 Bit Lolitas, W&W, Markus Schulz, Paul Oakenfold, John O’Callaghan, Eco, Aly & Fila, tyDi, KhoMha, Dash Berlin, Roger Shah, Max Graham and Paul van Dyk.
For the fourth year running, Armada Music won the International Dance Music Award for ‘Best Global Record Label’. This year, Armin van Buuren reclaimed the number one position in the DJ Mag Top 100, in which no less than 17 Armada DJ’s are featured. Markus Schulz received the award for ‘Best American DJ’, by DJ Times Magazine. We’re also very proud of our Managing Director, Maykel Piron, who was awarded with a ‘Feather’, a prize for people that have made an extraordinary contribution to the Dutch music industry. But there’s many, many more highlights that made this year another special one.
With social media still on the rise, it’s grown more important than ever. Through the Armada Facebook, we reach out to nearly 750,000 music lovers, as well as more than 119,000 followers on Twitter and more than 440,000 people on Google Plus. On our YouTube channel, we’re keeping more than 700,000 subscribers up to date on all music videos, interviews and specials. Keep following us for the latest updates on our artists, tracks, albums and fun-facts. You’re all welcome to the Armada community!
This year, we welcomed the legendary Modena Records to our family, as well as launching the powerful Mainstage Music with Dutch duo W&W. We look forward to collaborating with our artists and label-owners and create another successful 2013!
Stay tuned for much more quality music and Armada Nights in 2013! See you next year!
