Can you tell us a bit about the company’s history and its roster? Originally born in a club environment now working almost only promoting live concerts – largely in London, but also across the UK. We promote shows with the likes of Jamie xx, Kelela, Moderat, David August, OkLou, Gigi Masin & lots more.
– and a bit about the acts you personally work with at this moment? Especially looking forward to future shows with Dizzy Dae, David August, Modeselektor, Apparat, M Huncho, Daniel Brandt, Gaika, Paul White, Smerz and our showcase at The Great Escape 2018.
What was the moment you decided you wanted to work with music? Music has always been a passion of mine, so I knew it would be something I would engage with. Bringing people together for a shared experience is a big inspiration.
What are your favourite Danish acts? First Hate, Liss
