Mike Hawkins reveals that he has signed an exclusive deal with Armada Music and drops his first track.
Over the last few years, Mike Hawkins has been delivering some fine tunes on the likes of Spinnin’ Records and their sub-labels as he grew into the artist we know him as today. However all was not pretty and he followed the likes of Julian Jordan and Martin Garrix out of Spinnin’ Records, leaving himself options as to where he would take himself and what direction he would go.
Now it has been revealed that Mike Hawkins has signed an exclusive deal with Armada Music, the latest move by the record label who is snapping up a number of labels and artists to sign to their already huge roster, as they continue to diversify their artist roster and labels. Mike released the statement which you can read below about his move to Armada Music.
The past years have been extremely exciting for me, but I have also felt a need to do something different. As an artist, the current state of the electronic music scene, one where often gimmick matters over substance, has not been very fulfilling for me (and I know for many).
Time off is important, because when you’re away from all the parties and the attention you’re forced to make peace with yourself in a way, and often that’s when you start feeling miserable if you’re not creatively following the path you want. It’s sort of taking a step back, looking at everything, and asking yourself if it all still feels good – if it doesn’t, it’s time to change.
I’ve always prided myself on doing something unique, which is something that my fans have come to expect of me – with Armada I have the freedom to dig deeper into my own creativity to morph into the artist I’ve always envisioned myself growing into.
There is so much new music to come the following years as I begin kicking my creativity into overdrive, and I can’t wait to show you all what’s next.
So with his move and exclusive signing to Armada Music completed, Mike Hawkins hasn’t waited about to deliver new music as his brand new single ‘Follow’ arrives with the help of Disfunk and Oisin on vocals, and it continues the trend of music which Mike Hawkins has been delivering over the last few years. Let’s hope he continues to allow his creativity to flow and he continues to release new music.
