Dutch EDM artist Headhunterz, currently a leading name within the hardstyle genre, has signed a global deal with Ultra Music, the New York-based dance label into which Sony Music recently invested. A Headhunterz single and EP are now due for release this spring.

Confirming the signing, Ultra’s GM and A&R boss David Waxman told CMU: “Immediately after I first heard one of his productions, I wanted to work with Headhunterz. He brings a unique style to electronic music that is incredibly reactive upon first listen and his cult-like following is also a testament to his refreshing sound”.

Headhunterz himself added: “The deal with Ultra Music is a turning point in my career as an artist and producer. Having complete creative control in every aspect of what I do as Headhunterz will no doubt allow me the space and creativity to be true to hardstyle whilst being able to spread my music on an even larger scale backed by their resources, I am thrilled to get started on this exciting new adventure”.
