Rarely does a record label come along that clearly defines a sound, much less a generation, but
Big Beat Records has done that and more, and is ready to
celebrate their fifth anniversary in style. The label, which has played
home to electronic stars as
Skrillex, Icona Pop, Chromeo, Galantis and many, many
more, releases a new compilation – “5 Years of Big Beat” – released on January 15th to celebrate the milestone.

The compilation features 21 of their stand-out singles from the past five years, including cuts from
Skrillex, Fatboy Slim, Duck Sauce, Knife Party, Rudimental,
Jack Ü, Martin Solveig, Porter Robinson, and many
more. “5 Years of Big Beat” will also feature four brand-new exclusive
remixes from young rising producers that are bringing their fresh takes
to indelible Big Beat classics; including a
bouncy take on Cash Cash’s “Take Me Home” from Tarro, Maxx Live’s subdued remix of
Icona Pop’s eponymous single “I Love It” ft. Charli XCX, DEVI’s rework of Rudimental’s
Feel The Love,” and Speaker of the House’s whimsical remix of
’ smash hit “Runaway (U & I).”

On top of the 5th anniversary compilation, 2015 celebrated a big year for
Big Beat/Atlantic Records. The label reigned with a #1 Single placement across 21 weeks, including smash tracks from
David Guetta, Robin Schulz, as well as Skrillex & Diplo’s
Jack Ü – the most of any electronic label, garnering top honors as Billboard’s
Top Dance/Electronic Label of 2015!

Big Beat is home to such landscape-shifting artists as
David Guetta, Skrillex, Clean Bandit, Robin Schulz,
, Knife Party, Cash Cash, Rudimental, Chromeo,
Martin Solveig, and Matoma. The label was founded in 1987 by then 21-year-old New York DJ and current Chairman & CEO of Atlantic Records,
Craig Kallman, who started Big Beat in his bedroom.

become a major presence in the Dance and Hip-Hop underground, Big Beat
was acquired by Atlantic Records in 1991 where it continued to flourish,
releasing music from
Lil Kim, Twista, Junior Mafia, Quad City DJs, Robin S.,
and more. The influential imprint was re-launched by Atlantic in 2010,
and immediately re-established itself as the leading edge &
preeminent force of today’s Dance/Electronic
