Work history


Label Manager

XVI Records

Jan 2012
  • My previous role as label manager lead me to overseeing and orchestrating new releases from inception to delivery, with duties including handling A&R, Mastering, sourcing artwork & remixes, generating Metadata, PPL, PRS, MCPS Registrations, delivering digital & physical content to our primary and third party distributors. This required a knack for writing engaging and creative press releases, in order to secure support from key stakeholders. I also handled the majority of club and press PR, liaising with tastemaker publications such as Pitchfork, Dummy Mag, I-D Magazine, VICE, Dazed & Confused Magazine & many more. This experience allowed me gain knowledge of bringing out the potential in any release, and the importance of using all available assets to their greatest advantage. My time spent managing a number of vocalists enabled me to work on much larger release campaigns for the likes of Universal Records, which enabled me to co-ordinate video & photo shoots as well as compiling assets for the projects, such as commissioning remixes & sourcing artwork. This resulted in top 20 chart successes and the launching of many artists careers. I also worked on several brand partnerships during this time, working alongside well- known soft drink, extreme sports and entertainment brands.
