About me

I have over three years experience in music publicity, both (UK) national print and online (global). Whilst at an independent agency, I gained my own business, pitching and winning clients for myself. I have worked across a variety of genres with artists at different stages of their career from development artists to cult and household names: - I have provided assistance to national PR campaigns for the likes of Gotye, Keane and M83 and the UK Music Video Awards - My press and online campaign for Palace was instrumental to their signing to Fiction Records here in the UK - My online campaign for The Brian Jonestown Massacre (single, album and tour) in 2014 sparked revival and interest in the cult band. I have worked with: A Recordings (Anton Newcombe’s label) - Atlantic US - Believe Digital - Big Life Management - Caroline International – Columbia – Communion - Cooking Vinyl Essential Music & Marketing (now Red Essential) – Fiction - Fierce Panda – Kanine - Mexican Summer - Moshi Moshi – Naïve – Nettwerk – No Format - Republic of Music UK - Stranger - Software - Too Pure (Beggars) - Vector Management In my spare time I founded and curated a personal web project called Luvriddims, which explored ideas if the love song. It featured on Highsnobiety and the Guardian's Blog Jam series. July 2014 saw our first IRL event in London. I have also curated for web audio-visual music channel Juice VCR, which aims to support independent artists and filmmakers and brings back the old school discovery aspect of MTV. My interests are in communications, innovation, marketing, events and pop and DIY culture (fashion, music and film). E: meliz[dot]gokturk[at]gmail[dot]com
