Big Beat

on January 22, 2015 - 1:51am

Big Beat is home to such landscape-shifting artists as Skrillex, Icona Pop, Clean Bandit, Cash Cash, Galantis, Chromeo, Martin Solveig, Knife Party, and Robin Schulz. 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, selling records on the street from a shopping cart. Having become a major presence in the dance and hip-hop underground, Big Beat was acquired by Atlantic Records in 1991. The influential imprint was relaunched by Atlantic in 2010, again becoming a preeminent force on the leading edge of today’s dance/electronic scene.
