Definitive Recordings



  • Embellished by the fresh, unbounded foresight of the new generation and neoteric producers, Definitive Recordings has progressed beyond even its highest expectations and year after year, achieves new levels of notoriety and success. Label head and A&R man John Acquaviva has given focus to seeking and presenting the latest emerging sounds and talent to the world via a reputable, consistent, and trust-worthy platform. But he has a little help from his friends; Enter France-based DJ and producer Olivier Giacomotto, signed exclusively to Definitive Recordings since 2007. As a heavily touring artist, he helps John test the demos on the best litmus an A&R man could ask for: the fans! It is through their extensive touring, incredible networking, and now the new demo feature on the label’s webpage, that youthful and exciting new talent is harnessed and nurtured. Definitive Recordings’ momentum, prominence, fan base and chart success continues to accelerate with each year that passes. In 2010 alone, the label proudly held 44 chart positions on the Top 100 Charts of the world’s biggest electronic music digital distributor, Beatport. It welcomed 13 new contributing artists, including, Sahar Z & Guy Mantzur, Ben Lb, Fred Walter, Da Fresh, Ulisses Nunes, Libex, Mladen Tomic and Phunk Investigation. Pushing the envelope, encouraging new talent, and signing new sounds, Definitive is always at the forefront of the ever-evolving tech house and techno sounds. Never a label to release tracks for commercial appeal only, Definitive always aims to deliver the vibe of the underground that made and makes club music what it is today. From techno to tech-house to house and more, Definitive charges forward with a fierce release schedule, a strong focus, and a wonderful group of supportive followers and fans who, at the end of the day, determine the label’s fate… and so far, it’s looking good.
