Established in 2013 by Nick Middleton of Canadian electronic act, The Funk Hunters, Westwood has launched its new official brand identity to celebrate its 10th year of operations. The new logo’s sophisticated and modern visual components speaks to Westwood’s status as one of Canada’s leading independent music companies. Westwood’s 10 year celebration will roll out throughout the year with new and historical retrospective releases and events to be announced soon.

Westwood Recording began as an outlet for Middleton’s passion and love for the electronic music scene. Throughout the years, the indie label has blossomed into a music platform that oversees talent across global territories and genres encompassing industry acts including Chali 2na, Stickybuds, The Funk Hunters, K+Lab, Moontricks, LŪN, KR3TURE, LIINKS, K Theory, Akylla, and more. In recent years, Westwood has focused on bringing next generation acts to its roster, with the likes of concept- project Zodiac, Kotek, So Sus, and other rising stars.

Over the past decade Westwood has expanded internationally, driven by a passion for creating unique artist opportunities and a commitment to quality music. The label’s releases frequently earn international press coverage, sync placements with Sony Pictures, Netflix, Hulu, MTV, and Riot Games, etc), and regularly chart atop Apple Music and Spotify playlists. Its creative partnerships with industry leaders like Splice, Twitch, and Monstercat have created unconventional and innovative pipelines for artists to succeed in an ever changing digital landscape. Truly a company created by artists, for artists, Westwood brings its community-powered presence to stage takeovers at major festivals like Shambhala, Rifflandia, and Monstercat’s Compound, with more to come.

On Westwood’s rebrand, Middleton says,

“I first started Westwood back in 2013 to release my own music and some of my closest friends’. I was frustrated with the lack of transparency and support with the labels we were working with, and frankly, it was hard to get paid by indie-electronic labels back then. Things were just starting to shift over to streaming, it was like the wild wild west, and I felt like our scene deserved better. I wasn’t concerned with genres, we just wanted to support good music from artists we believed in. That was really the winning recipe for our staying power.

It’s surreal to think it’s been a decade already! I feel more energized about the future of Westwood today than ever before. And that’s really a testament to the amazing team we have behind the scenes at the label, our growing roster, and our community. I’m beyond proud to unveil the look of the NEW Westwood today that will help take us into this next chapter!”
