Warner Music Central Europe (WMCE) and Stefan Dabruck Management (SDM) have agreed to extend their successful partnership. Leading German-speaking music company, WMCE, and Frankfurt-based dance specialist artist agency, SDM, have already made superstars of artists Alle Farben, HUGEL and Robin Schulz locally and internationally in recent years.

Both partners will build on their joint success and focus on taking European Dance music to a new global audience by marrying up Warner Recorded Music’s powerful global network and SDM’s second-to-none creative talent; a perfect marriage of skillsets to take things to a whole new level. 

The collaboration also represents an extension of Warner Music Group’s activity in the dance music space, alongside established genre giants FFRR Records, Spinnin’ Records, Whet Records, and powerhouse Warner Recorded Music DJs and producers, such as David Guetta and Tiësto.

The partnership gives EDM artists access to a leading European dance management and producer team, a state-of-the-art studio in Frankfurt and major expertise in WMCE’s local and international marketing teams, enabling them to get the best service across every step of their creative process.
