Whet Records just welcomed six new artists!
As part of their ongoing mission to house Asia's best talents, the electronic music label unveiled their biggest roaster expansion yet with five new acts from all over the region. Helmed by Warner Music Asia, the label was launched April this year with China's top female DJ and producer Lizzy Wang.
"Asian electronic music is rapidly growing in popularity, and we expect to see a new generation of superstars spring up from the region. These new signings represent some of the best emerging talents in the genre, and we are excited to provide them with a platform to reach a worldwide audience," says Whet Records Label Director Zoe Yang.
Joining Whet Records is one of Southeast Asia top DJs 22Bullets, Chinese dance music icon Gigi Lee, rapper-turned-dance music act Ha Jiang, Chinese electronic music pioneer Mickey Zhang, multimedia collective Yuen Yuen, and multihyphenate YUAN.
