Machin & Equinoccio Records, two of the most important independent labels in Latin music, have signed a worldwide agreement with Virgin Music Group.
The independent record labels, founded by legendary Mexican singer, songwriter and producer Pepe Aguilar, both have a focus on the Regional Mexican genre.
Machin Records, founded in 2016, is the label home of Angela Aguilar, Leonardo Aguilar and Irany & David while Equinoccio Records, founded in 2000, is the label home of Pepe Aguilar. Dedicated to the comprehensive development of their artists, both labels seek personalized attention to each one and now join forces with Virgin Music Group to expand their goals globally.
“After being an independent artist since the year 2000 (one of the first ones in the industry in this new era), it is with great excitement that we join forces with Virgin Music, who we believe supports independent labels in the best way possible. With great experience and open to this new and very competitive music business. We are proud of this new beginning as we venture together at a time where Mexican Music is so relevant, so needed and making history”. — Pepe Aguilar
“Being close to the great talent of one of the most successful Icons of Mexican Music fills us with energy and enthusiasm. Pepe Aguilar is synonymous with art and creativity. As a record executive, performer and producer, we greatly value his contribution to the music industry, his past achievements and those that will follow.
“We also welcome Angela Aguilar to Virgin Music Group, one of the talents with the most potential in our entire region. We also recognize the interpretive ability of Leonardo Aguilar who is developing day by day, taking giant steps with each release”. — Victor González, President, Virgin Music Group Latin America & Iberian Peninsula
