Amsterdam, 16th May 2013 – Armada Bookings, the official bookings agency of the award-winning record label Armada Music, has kicked off. The agency, working together closely with AT’s booking division Extended Music, kicks off with DJ’s Antillas, Alexander Popov and Ruben de Ronde.

Armada Bookings kicks off with three talented DJ’s. Italian producer/DJ Antillas, who’s clocked up more than 20 years of experience in electronic dance music and is responsible for high-chart remixes for the likes of Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Sinead O’Connor, Kim Wilde, Simply Red and many more. Ruben de Ronde, one of the Armada Night residents and the side-kick on Armin van Buuren’s A State of Trance live shows, also joins the roster. Russian producer and DJ Alexander Popov is one of the fastest rising names in the EDM scene. With an ever-growing fan-base behind him, both his productions and DJ sets are highly sought-after.
Maykel Piron, managing director Armada Music: ”By launching Armada Bookings, we’re taking our business to the next level. We can now fully support the artists we believe in. Next to offering a record contract and release their music, we can help build their DJ career, as well as add them to our management. Armada Music offers the complete package.”
