Gino Caporale launched 418 Music in 2013, released 12 tracks and acquired international distribution through INgrooves Music Group. Two years later, the label released “Synergy” by American Music Award-nominated artist Crystal Waters. With ten #1 hits including “Gypsy Woman”, Crystal is one of the biggest dance artists of all time, according to Billboard. “Synergy” became the first #1 Billboard hit for the label. The label also released 18 tracks including “Can’t Be Stopped” by ZHU and Krista Richards that garnered 1.3 million Spotify streams. Gino’s wife, Creative Director Angela Buchanico, also became a partner in the label. By 2016, the label was well established and esteemed by the global dance/House music community. More well-known artists were approaching the label and the company released 20 tracks with six charting on Billboard including their second #1 hit on the Billboard Dance Club chart. The following year, the label released 28 tracks, achieved more than 2.3 million streams and seven Billboard-charting tracks including their third #1 track and three Top 20 tracks. In 2018, 418 Music experienced its best year to date and nearly doubled the number of releases from the previous year to 53. The label achieved 3.4 million streams, 13 Billboard-charting tracks including their fourth #1 Billboard track, four Top 10 tracks, and two Top 20 tracks. Following their explosive success, 2019 began with top honors when Billboard released its annual rankings for 2018 and named 418 Music as the #1 Independent Dance Club Imprint label and the #7 overall Dance Club Imprint label over major labels Capitol Records (Katy Perry, Paul McCartney) and Republic Records (Taylor Swift, Arianna Grande, Nicki Minaj).
