Wide Awake Music - About


Innovate and push boundaries

In favor of independent music companies.

Contact us

Five years ago we started Wide Awake because we felt that the music industry was full of rusty habits that needed to be improved. There was no transparency, inflexible contracts and bad service was the standard.

We build a company from scratch, with a cloud app for transparant reporting, access to top tier services for our partners, and creative support at a standard that traditional players cannot compete with.

Now we’re one of the fastest growing label services companies in Europe, with many renowned partners, a huge catalog of high quality tracks and a few global hits under our belt.

We can be your front seat partner, or part of your support team. Full service distributor, or a technology provider. But when we’re involved, we’ll do it in the best way possible.

We give you the ability to scale up, while keeping control and focus on your strengths. We provide creative strategies and question every ‘but that’s just how it goes’ answer.

We are a team of creatives, suits and developers. Some are industry dinosaurs, to make sure our innovative thinking is mirrored with proven insights.

We are there for collaboration. We love groundbreaking ideas, outside of the box thinking and to collaborate, support and tackle problems right away. Together we can foresee what others couldn’t and push the boundaries of the music industry.

How can we help you?
