I attend a lot of music conferences and one of the things I enjoy most – aside from discovering new artists – is learning about new technologies and ideas.
I first heard about Crowdmix in the Spring when I met Angus and Chris at Canadian Music Week. It sounded interesting – a platform to discover music through friends and friends through music.
It’s crazy to think that since Myspace there isn’t a social media site that engages music. While Facebook and Twitter and Instagram are all great, I still think that void hasn’t been filled.
Next I got a chance to meet more of the team in France at MIDEM. Now I was getting intrigued…
Over the next few months I began to see a constant stream of news fill up my timeline on social media… now I really wanted to see what was up.
So it was great getting a chance to stop by the Crowdmix offices while I was in London in December.
I connected with Damon and Gareth who I met at MIDEM in the summer. I was introduced to Manny who is part of the team and also a talented rapper
First off the office was impressive. I wasn’t expecting it to be so huge! haha You can tell its part of a younger generation when a conference room is nicknamed “Biggie” complete with a drawing of him on the wall.
One side you have the young professionals working away on the music side, and on the other I saw the seasoned professionals discussing business plans.
After hearing about it for so long, was great to finally get a chance to see what the buzz is about.
The hype is real.
I think Crowdmix has a chance to become the next big social platform.
Back in the day I loved finding the new artist before they blew up…
I still love that, but now I also love finding the new technology before it takes over.
