Disruptor Records is an American record label founded by Adam Alpert in September 2014, as a joint venture with Sony Music Entertainment.[2][3] The label has sold more than 15 million singles worldwide as of 2016.[4]

History

Alpert founded the label in 2014, alongside his clients' musical group The Chainsmokers, whom he also helped to form by introducing the members, Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall in 2012.[5]

Vancouver-based producer Vanic signed with the label in 2016.[6][7] Lost Kings signed with the label later in October.[8] The Chainsmokers released several chart-topping songs with the label such as "Closer", "Paris" and "Something Just Like This".[9]

Alpert said “We care about the artist’s career as a whole and not just about the records. That’s the foundation upon which Disruptor was built.“[4] In 2014, he signed the joint venture with Sony Music Entertainment CEO Doug Morris, who was replaced by Rob Stringer[10][11] and launched Disruptor Records, Disruptor Management and Selector Songs.[4]

The name "Disruptor" as described by Alpert, is about 'shaking things up'. The label would focus on the long-term development of artists through artist-to-fan communication. The artists would be managed by Alpert and their music would be released through Sony.[12]

In January 2017, Disruptor artists The Chainsmokers, Vanic and Lost Kings performed at a "Lost in Music", a Sony event series.[13]

Heroless, a producer who remixed Vanic's song "Too Soon" was signed to the label in 2017.[14]
