About Musical Freedom Records
Musical Freedom Records was created after Tiësto left Black Hole Recordings. In August 2009, the record label was formed as a way to freely express the music he was performing in his live sets. The idea was to produce the music from these performances and share them with fans across the world. What started as a way for him to share his music has grown to include other artists as well, as Tiësto quickly found a passion for discovering and helping new talent find their footing in the music industry.
He has taken numerous artists under his wing, mentoring them, producing their music, and guiding them through the twists and turns of the industry. The record label, an offshoot of Spinning Records, has become a defining record label for artists in the dance scene and similar genres. Beyond his own music, Musical Freedom has released records for David Guetta, MORTEN, DREAM, VER:WEST, Mike Williams, Interrupt, Michael Sparks, and many other independent artists.
The data platform 1001 Tracklists elected the record label “Most Supported Independant Label” for two years in a row. In 2021, the label became the most streamed record label on Beatport.
There’s no question that Tiësto has had a big impact on the music world and the dance scene of today, as he continues to create and produce his own music and mentor others as they find their way.
