A handful of independent record labels and artists including Worldwide Records, Cósmica, La Casa Del Sombrero, and more spanning Latin America, Spain, and the U.S. have signed a global distribution deal with ADA Latin. It’s one of the most ambitious Latinx music industry moves in 2021.
Representing the Latin division of Warner Music Group, ADA Latin was launched in July 2020 in order to better target Latinx audiences and bring them a variety of music. ADA Latin operates from their Miami offices across the U.S. Latin market, as well as Latin America, Spain, and Portugal. Although the company is not yet a year old, it has already made a huge mark with this deal.
“We’re proud and honored to count these phenomenal artists and labels – who are undoubtedly shaping the future of Latin and global indie-spirited music – as part of our ADA family,” Managing Director Juan Paz says in a press release. “We’ve joined with many of the greatest creative talents in music, and being able to partner with these influential players in our first year of business is a credit to the vision and expertise of our highly respected powerhouse leadership team.”
Some of the most noteworthy labels that have signed with ADA include Mexico’s Worldwide Records, which is headed by legendary producer Toy Selectah and includes an eclectic roster of standout names, such as Uzielito Mix and Bruses. L.A-based Cósmica Records—home to such artists as Carla Morrison, Vanessa Zamora, and Katzú Oso—is another company included in the deal. Also of note are a number of artist-led labels, including Carlinhos Brown’s Candyall Music and Eduardo Cabra’s newly launched La Casa Del Sombrero.
