Founded in 2003 by Armin van Buuren, Maykel Piron, and David Lewis (AR-MA-DA), Armada Music soon stood out from the crowd and went on to become an award-winning company.
From 2009 to 2013, the Amsterdam-based label was crowned ‘Best Global Dance Label’ five years in a row at the International Dance Music Awards in Miami. The label went on to expand across the entire electronic dance music spectrum, signing quality music no matter the genre.
In addition to its own label pillars (Armada, Armada Trice, Armada Deep, Armada Captivating, Armada Chill, Subjekt Recordings, Armada Zouk, and The Bearded Man), Armada Music represents imprints from renowned acts such as W&W (Mainstage Music), Gareth Emery (Garuda Music), Erick Morillo (Subliminal Records), Showtek (SKINK), and Armin van Buuren (Armind, A State Of Trance, Who’s Afraid of 138?!), adding to a grand list of over thirty labels.
From the internationally acclaimed ‘Armada Night’ events and ‘Armada Invites’ in its own in-office Club! to hosting the Armada Talent Experience all over the world for the new generation of superstars, Armada Music is heavily invested in the future of electronic dance music and is without doubt one of the big players in the game.
