- Co-founder @mixcloud // DJ/label owner @ManMakeMusic // always evangelising
I am Cofounder of online radio platform Mixcloud. Over the past 5 years I’ve worked with an amazing team of people to grow the company from a couple of guys in a warehouse in Wembley to the world’s biggest community of DJs and music curators, reaching 10 million people a month - all with no funding! I am a regular speaker at conferences including the Guardian Changing Media Summit, Amsterdam Dance Event, International Music Summit, International Radio Festival, The Great Escape, Rio Music Conference and many more on a range of topics including the music industry, digital media, brands and advertising, entrepreneurship, rights & IP. I also enjoy DJing (spinning a range of sounds and styles taking in soul, boogie, disco, hip-hop and house) and I run electronic music record label ManMakeMusic.

Pretty dope. Don't know the original so don't really know what you've done with it ;) Logic's verse is sick though so good choice of track there. It's got a nice moody feel to it. However it kinda sits in between being a cool beats/hip-hop type track and a rowdy trap track for me, and doesn't quite hit it for either.
This is a great project. I checked out the Kickstarter page, you've put together a great campaign with an awesome set of rewards. You're clearly part of an exciting and tight music community in SF + beyond, which didn't really come through from the video and I only figured out from the Kickstarter page. Look forward to checking out the space some day IRL ;)
Love seeing the idea we discussed long ago on a flight come to life! Great to see the product fully functioning. Wonder if you should consider the language of "experts" instead of / in addition to "curators". E.g. for startups who want product/business plan feedback? But looks like you're focused on creatives; can you do the 2 in parallel? In terms of spreading the word, I guess the best channels would be for the influential experts/curators you enlist to promote it to their fans/followers. Obvious stuff ;) Question is - what are the barriers
