The Capitol Music Group (CMG) label's New York office will be phased out by June 1, with Mendlinger departing then. It is unclear if any Astralwerks staffers are making the West Coast move.
“Over the two decades that I have been at Astralwerks, our extraordinary and relentlessly passionate team has achieved success at a level I never could have imagined,” Mendlinger told Billboard via email. “Halsey’s breathtaking and explosive success; our dominance in dance music -- featuring the likes of The Swedish House Mafia, David Guetta and The Chemical Brothers and our keen eye for spotting early and innovative talent such as EDEN, Lemaitre and Albin Lee Meldau, have all contributed to the label’s remarkable stature.
