A new music management is gearing up for launch in Amsterdam.
LIWYN officially opens its doors on January 1st 2013 and will be representing dance music talent in the Netherlands and internationally.
LIWYN’s roster at launch comprises of sixteen carefully selected established and up-and-coming DJs. Internationally the agency will be representing ATFC, Bass Kleph, Carl Tricks, Cat Carpenters, Erick Eerdhuizen, Filthy Rich, Funkerman, Housequake, Prok & Fitch, Rene Amesz, Saeed Younan, Shagspeare and DJ Licious. In the Netherlands they are proud to be representing Bingo Players, Fedde Le Grand and Sick Individuals.
The agency is equipped to handle every aspect of booking an artist from contractual details and administration to agenda management in promotion. In addition to booking LIWYN will also offer services in three additional areas: consultancy, concept development and programming.
The founder of LIWYN is Leonieke Smit. The Leisure Management graduate brings more than a decade of industry experience to the company. She began working at 1Management in 2002 becoming co-owner just a couple of years later. Whilst there she was responsible for building the international careers of many of the Netherland’s most popular dance music exports. Artists such as Fedde le Grand, Bingo Players, Funkerman, Sidney Samson and Gregor Salto all benefitted from her skills and expertise. All in all she has helped more than 50 artists establish an international career. Leonieke will bring part of the 1Management roster with her to her new agency.
"The world is faster and more fluid than ever," Leonieke says. "A strong network, solid contacts and great connections are what leads to success in this industry. We pride ourselves on a high level of personal contact for our artists and for our clients. Our aim is to put the wheels of a project in motion and then get out of the way so our artists and clients can focus on what they do best."
Leonieke’s vision is to build a full-service agency for the dance music industry, connecting the very best talent with clients from across the world.
LIWYN will be a brand to watch in 2013 and with an impressive selection of top-tier talent already in place they will certainly be a hot number for those hoping to throw the most memorable events of the coming year.
