Wertes Group Music story
Wertes Records was a music label created in 2007 that allowed the production of digital musical works during the rise of internet sharing platforms attracting many artists, such as Morsay. The origin of WGM is the creation of Wertes Rap Records in 2011, which replaces Wertes Records and gives way to rap as well as independent artists.
During the year 2012, Wertes Rap Records becomes Wertes All Stars (or Wertes Group All Stars) influenced by the Neochrome label. The youth is attracted by the rap that shows a dominant growth in French culture, Wertes All Stars then attracts young artists like Black Street, Sanonym, Duck Hakill … The era of Wertes All Stars stops in 2013.
The relaunch of Wertes Group in 2013, does not follow the musical activities of the organization, until 2016 when Yusuf Erdogan then decided to transit Wertes All Stars in Wertes Group Music. He runs the label for 1 year then gives way to Nabyl Badji. In 2016, a vast musical production operation on digital platforms is launched in order to significantly increase the catalog of WGM and become influential in the region.
Through the company Erdoğan Müzik, WGM maintains distribution relations with very important Turkish artists including Ibrahim Tatlises, Oguz Yilmaz or even Ferdi Tayfur.
Yusuf Erdogan has also produced Hanifi Berber’s Kiraz Dali, which has been widely heard by the Turkish community.
What we want today is to grow with the artists and build a musical empire recognized in the world. Our engineers and strategists are familiar with the digital system and the internet world, which is a powerful tool to promote and publicize artists, even those who are new to the art world.
