[av_two_third first av_uid=’av-t16zj’]Coming off an exceptional year filled with releases from artists including Michael Brun, Shaun Frank, Marcus Schossow & Dave Winnel and more, groundbreaking label Size Records ended 2015 on a record high note. Now having entered its thirteenth year, Size looks to the future with a full creative relaunch for the label in 2016.
Announced by Billboard, the relaunch nods to the label’s previous paint design series, with a bold and modern take on Size’s signature sleek aesthetic. Says designer Robert Norgren at Forest, ”…we wanted to create something entirely new. Still with the aim to flirt with earlier fragments from the label’s history. The goal was to provoke, experiment and to create visually driven artworks with video as the hero format.”
Founded in 2003 by producer Steve Angello, Size Records has stood as a platform for diverse talent and emerging sounds since its inception. Building its foundation upon an impeccable roster including artists such as Laidback Luke, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Afrojack, Size has risen to the forefront of electronic music culture and innovation throughout its run. Only continuing to grow, in 2013 Angello announced the launch of tech house driven sister label X, as well as an alignment with Junior Sanchez’s Brobot imprint that same year. The new year looks to continue Size’s ascent, with the release of Angello’s highly anticipated artist-album, Wild Youth: Chapter 2, set for January 22nd.
