Whatever its crossover appeal, EDM is driven by what the DJs play. And much of what they play is released by Spinnin' Records. In 1999, Spinnin' pushed its Dutch-house sound (hard and clipped, its beats and riffs a series of clean, cartoonish punches) onto the radio in Holland and then set its sights globally – see Martin Garrix's worldwide No. 1 "Animals." Spinnin' is also a hub for the imprints of artists including Tiësto, Afrojack, Sander van Doorn, Sidney Samson, and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. Now, Spinnin' is the go-to label for Universal's big-name remixes, such as Cedric Gervais' touch-ups of Lana Del Ray and Miley Cyrus.
