081 - Bjorn Niclas (Music Streaming on the Blockchain)
Bjorn Niclas is a seasoned music and music-tech industry veteran with over fifteen years in the music space. His previous ventures include artist and tour management, a record label (Spundae black), and several music-tech start-ups, Vidiam, Grooveo, and Choon. Earlier this year, Bjorn co-founded ROCKI, the world's first hybrid user-centric blockchain-based music streaming ecosystem, aiming to solve some of the music industry's most fundamental problems. Simply put, to put more money in the hands of the 99% of artists not benefiting from the unfair streaming model created to cater to the 1% (who takes 90% of the streaming revenue). "I build things and empower people for positive change. Positivity always wins in my book. A firm believer in Pay it Forward" - Bjorn Niclas  A brand new user-centric blockchain music streaming platform aimed at independent artists and their fans has launched, called ROCKI. On ROCKI, artists are compensated for their streams, both in fiat currency and our unique ROCKS token, a world first. Owner Bjorn Niclas says “We’ve been working with many artists who used our previous services — Vidiam, Grooveo and Choon — to create a platform that allows them to connect directly with their fans. Many of them have already committed to ROCKI and will be credited in ROCKS when joining the new platform. In addition, we will be announcing the details of our public Beta launch and an upcoming token swap on Bounce.Finance soon. Stay tuned for that, and for your roadmap to the future of music streaming and fan participation. Because given our current state of affairs, we either keep up with the times — or get left behind. It’s about time the traditional industry model changed. Let’s give more to those who actually put in the work.” Today, on the BOOST Podcast I chat to Bjorn about Rocki, Blockchain, Streaming, Spotify and much more.  Find out more about ROCKI and how you can get involved, visit: www.ROCKI.app In this podcast i use the microphone from Sudotack - It's a USB Podcast PC Microphone, Professional 96KHZ/24Bit Studio Cardioid Condenser Mic Kit with Sound Card Desktop Stand Shock Mount Pop Filter, for Skype Youtuber Gaming Recording - https://amzn.to/2ZCiGsE Follow Grahame Farmer: Facebook: https://goo.gl/Xy6oD7 Instagram: https://goo.gl/HEfUMr iTunes Podcast: http://apple.co/thedailyboostpod YouTube: https://goo.gl/3JmFbF Get Hypeddit: https://goo.gl/wKJwdD Join our DJ Tips Broadcast: http://bit.ly/gftelegram Learn to Produce: http://bit.ly/educationbass Loops: http://bit.ly/2Z1AIVQ Plugins: http://bit.ly/2Z3wnS7

077 - Robbie Murch from the Identification of Music Group
This week on the BOOST Podcast, it's a Brighton Music Conference special which happens this week 1st & 2nd October.   This year BMC is a Virtual Conference due to the restrictions on numbers of people that can be together for COVID-19 safety.   Due to the current financial state of the electronic music industry and the ever-changing government guidelines the Brighton Music Conference team have taken the decision to give free access to the full virtual conference so that everyone in the industry can benefit from its content during these difficult and hard times.  In partnership with Beatport, the free virtual pass will give full access to the panel discussions, Q&As, workshops, tutorials and dj sets as well as exclusive footage.

076 - Ben Bowler from SendMusic
Age 27 and already a tech entrepreneur (as you know, he built live DJ streaming service, Chew.tv, into a 500k community and sold it to BandLab), Ben Bowler built the SendMusic app from scratch while also undertaking an incredible 2-year solo bike ride around the world. Armed only with a laptop and mobile phone for testing, he cycled 23,000km alone across the world, experiencing different cultures, incredible high and lows, physical and mental challenges and more, until his adventure was prematurely ended by Covid-19 and an emergency flight home from Java Island. As a tech-savvy individual, Ben has created a must-watch vlog charting his journey with some stunning footage and insights into the adventure of a lifetime. You can check it out here: www.benbowler.com. In this podcast, Ben gives his insights into why he and co-founder Kemal Mermutlu (BBC Radio 1 - Producer of Diplo & Friends) decided to build SendMusic. What problems they identified within the unreleased music eco-system, and what changes they hope SendMusic can make to industry working practices. SendMusic is already being used by BBC Radio 1’s Mistajam, Benji B and 1Xtra’s Jamz Supernova, among many others, as an all-in-one music file transfer and collaborative platform.

075 - Ardalan
In 2019, Ardalan released his ‘Mr. Good’ LP, via DIRTYBIRD, who to Ardalan is more of a second family than it is his label home. As a nascent raver living sans parents in San Francisco, the teenage artist began his relationship with the brand at its very first BBQ event in 2007; by 2010 his career set sail with his Justin Martin collaboration “Mr. Spock,” and two years later he found himself living with his production partner. After cultivating his career and giving him a safe place to experiment, Ardalan returns the boundless love and support he’s received from DIRTYBIRD over the years with a forward-thinking record that enters the imprint into an inspiring new chapter. In 2020 during lockdown he released the remix album of 'Mr. Good' to follow up the album.   I've been friends with Ardalan since 2013 when we did a Data Transmission party in Miami. So it was great fun to sit and chat with him about the albums, remixing, his tips for producers and his greatest mistakes and how he got thru them. I'm excited now the kids are going back to school to return to the podcast, and I've got some great episodes lined up.  In this podcast i use the microphone from Sudotack - It's a USB Podcast PC Microphone, Professional 96KHZ/24Bit Studio Cardioid Condenser Mic Kit with Sound Card Desktop Stand Shock Mount Pop Filter, for Skype Youtuber Gaming Recording - https://amzn.to/2ZCiGsE Follow Grahame Farmer: Facebook: https://goo.gl/Xy6oD7 Instagram: https://goo.gl/HEfUMr iTunes Podcast: http://apple.co/thedailyboostpod YouTube: https://goo.gl/3JmFbF Get Hypeddit: https://goo.gl/wKJwdD Join our DJ Tips Broadcast: http://bit.ly/gftelegram Learn to Produce: http://bit.ly/educationbass Loops: http://bit.ly/2Z1AIVQ Plugins: http://bit.ly/2Z3wnS7

066 - In conversation with Alexis Raphael (chatting record labels, production, hardware and industry tips)
Alexis Raphael came to prominence in 2011 with his seminal track ‘Spaceship’ & 'I Know' and followed with a series of lush, sexy and warm house records that gained universal praise and put Alexis’ sound all around the world. As the music and scene evolved, so too did Alexis’ sound becoming somewhat harder whilst still retaining some of his signature elements; references to acid house, hardcore and jungle, deep pads and vocals. However, by 2016, Alexis had become somewhat disconnected with the path of the music and scene he was involved in. It took a long time to put together what was wrong but what followed was a three-year path to this point now of launching Paella Hair Sex. Paella Hair Sex is the beginning of a new chapter in Alexis Raphael’s musical story. The first two EPs will be from the label boss himself, kicking off with ‘Digital Music Almost Killed Me EP’. Then attention turns to new artists joining the PHS family - please send demos to info@paellahairsex.com We spoke about Paella Hair Sex, running labels, creche and a whole host of Music Industry Tips.

065 - Jorge Meehan and Brian Murphy from JBM Events chat event promotion and touring events
In only one year, Jorge Meehan and Brian Murphy’s JBM Events have established themselves as one of the country's foremost party promoters and draw on over 20 years of experience of hosting events. Last year alone they booked 328 artists, hosted 64 events, had 53,298 attendees, held music shows and festivals in seven different UK cities and was nominated as ‘Best Large Club Promoter’ in Skiddle’s 18th Birthday Awards. In 2020 the company's festival count exceeds 20 with the hope to attract over 120,000 attendees this year alone not to mention booking over 150 music events across the country. Each event they host is focussed on getting the details right, so you can always be sure that the mesmeric lights, epic sound systems and close knit atmospheres are unlike any other you have experienced. They take place in leading venues up and down the country and deal with the most assured and iconic brands, DJs, labels and artists in dance music. The latest schedule is another bold statement of intent that covers plenty of the electronic spectrum and with the launch of seven new festivals will take their festival count past the 20 mark. I sat down with Brian & Jorge to talk about event promotion, running massive events and the events they have coming in 2020.

Since August 2019, I’ve had this BOOST podcast and I’m excited to say it’s just hit 10,000 listens - so thank you to everyone that’s tuned - i created its a chance for me to give tips, motivation and maybe a few guest interviews along the way. It’s been a few big 10k recently - i just hit 10k on Instagram, 10,000 plays on this and just run my fast 10k finally going under an hour. So, we are at the end of January 2020 already, it’s shot by.  How did you get on with 2020 Goals, who’s smashed some already drop me a tweet at @grahame_dt with what you’ve completed so far?

060 - The History of Nervous Records
As one of the longest standing independent record labels in the US, Nervous Records has built its reputation through a willingness to take chances on new sounds and new producers. The label was famous almost immediately when it started back in 1991 because of its eye-catching, very distinctive cartoon character logo. Nervous’ first major dance release came in 1992, with “Feel Like Singing” by Sandy B. Nervous decided at that point to focus its energy on expanding the label’s musical field.  I sat down with label founder Michael Weiss and General Manager Andrew Salsano to chat about the label, the stories from the start, how they built the label.  Also, we chatted about how the label has evolved over the last 28 years.  I loved this chat, its full of depth and I learnt so much about the label's history, I really hope you enjoy it.

Firstly thank you to everyone that listened to the shows in 2019.    I’m truly enjoying the podcast train, it was something i wanted to start back in March 2018 but procrastinated over for over a year and a half. Which was ridiculous, mainly over format. I’ve had a week or so off social media, which was has been really good, I’m feeling pumped and ready for 2020! I wanted to start 2020 with a chat about goals.  I’m not really in new years resolutions, I think that I’m the same me - I’m just looking to improve that. I’m looking to improve what i have going on for myself and those around me.   What do i need to do increase my happiness, we can do this by looking at what was successful in 2019 and what wasn’t, what do need to push more.  What problems do i need to fix and how I’m gonna do that. So i wanted to offer up the 20 in 20 challenge for 2020 and to give you some food for thought I’ve come up with 20 points to help you work out what your 20 might be.   Now some of my 20 are very big but some are very tiny and might only take minutes but are essential.

050 - In conversation with Cheyne Christian
Cheyne Christian is a DJ and producer with an innate talent for house music. Immersed in the halcyon days of New York house music, he held residencies at the legendary clubs in the city, including Webster Hall, China Club, and Avalon. As demand for his music grew, gigs flooded in from further afield in Miami (Liquid), Ibiza (Bora Bora Beach Club) and London (The End). He mixed a Webster Hall compilation album for Groovilicious (part of Strictly Rhythm) and began producing his own music. Cheyne remixed ‘Sweat’ the #1 Billboard chart-topping hit from C & C Music Factory. As he seemed primed to step up to superstar DJ territory, life had other plans and he took a step back out of the spotlight. A self-imposed, 12-year hiatus from house music ensued. However, during this hiatus, his love for house music never went away and now, with his label Bridge & Tunnel Beat Co. Cheyne Christian has returned to what he does best; producing huge, high energy house tracks infused with New York tribal beats, tech grooves and Latin flavours. I sat down with him to chat about his return and his journey from the beginning in a truly riveting conversation. ‘Sneaker Dancing Sessions Ibiza 2019’ is out now on all download / streaming outlets. https://fanlink.to/SneakerDancingIbiza2019 In this podcast i have a brand new microphone from Sudotack - It's a USB Podcast PC Microphone, Professional 96KHZ/24Bit Studio Cardioid Condenser Mic Kit with Sound Card Desktop Stand Shock Mount Pop Filter, for Skype Youtuber Gaming Recording - https://amzn.to/2ZCiGsE Follow Grahame Farmer: Facebook: https://goo.gl/Xy6oD7 Instagram: https://goo.gl/HEfUMr iTunes Podcast: http://apple.co/thedailyboostpod YouTube: https://goo.gl/3JmFbF Get Hypeddit: https://goo.gl/wKJwdD Join our DJ Tips Broadcast: http://bit.ly/gftelegram Learn to Produce: http://bit.ly/educationbass Loops: http://bit.ly/2Z1AIVQ Plugins: http://bit.ly/2Z3wnS7

Award-winning multi-vocalist, producer and comedian Beardyman has returned from a hiatus.   Beardyman’s rise to success began with him winning the UK Beatbox Championships two years in a row in 2006 and 2007. Creatively shackled by technology and his vast musical ideas, he then went on to develop the world’s most advance live music production system known as BEARDYTRON_5000, allowing him to improvise studio quality cutting edge dance music in real time. He unveiled the BEARDYTRON_5000 at the annual global TED conference which you can watch HERE. He also received a standing ovation for his talk which only happened for a few of the groundbreaking talks that year. Not stopping there, Beardyman has toured the world consistently for over a decade headlining boutique festivals and performing on main stages and big tops ranging from Bestival to Coachella, Fuji Rocks to Glastonbury and everything in between. He was even asked to open the entire Glastonbury festival two years running which lead to him being credited by BBC Breakfast as the ‘King of Sound, Ruler of Beats’.

043 - Peak Performance & Wellbeing with Dan Gayle
Dan Gayle grew up partly in London and partly in Suffolk. He’s been running his own business as a coach since 2012, which was part-time initially, then left a 10-year career in finance behind to pursue it fully at the end of 2014. What started out as “Life Coaching”, his services have evolved to become Peak Performance & Wellbeing  Coaching, as he is both fascinated by AND passionate about maximising human potential. He is the creator of The 6P’s  Peak Performance & Wellbeing Coaching Framework, which brings together decades of experience from multiple industries such as business, coaching, personal development, psychology, music, events  & marketing. He partners with DJ’s & Producers, as well as business owners to get the absolute most from themselves over the long run. This is achieved by working on both the internal world (the mind/psychology) and the external world (implementing strategies/planning/tactics/execution etc), which are captured within the 6P’s framework. Whilst these two niches may sound worlds apart, Dan is keen to point out that artists are actually building a business, where they are the main asset.  Maximising the performance of this asset (themselves) over the long run is absolutely crucial to maximising the potential of success. The means those niches actually have strong overlap. You can book in for your free discovery session with Dan via dangayle-coach.com/music.  Dan has offered us a special discount - for the first 5 people who sign up for their free call and subsequently sign up for Peak Performance  & Wellbeing Coaching, you will get a whopping 45% off the standard rate.

025 - Setting Goals as a DJ / Artist
One thing I speak to DJs about is #goals, this is really important for DJs. Its important for focus, where are you now and where do you want to get in to in the next 3/6/12 months. Once you know that, you can then set about working how you are going to get to that place, what steps you need to put in place to try and get you there.  So i thought, today we'd chat about Goals more on the BOOST podcast.

Today, I’m joined by Jason Grishkoff from Submithub.com. I’ve been learning loads about Spotify for my current series of YouTube tutorials and one of my new tools for submission to playlists is Submithub, i find it really useful from a label point of view and thought it would be a good chat about release promotion with its founder Jason. I thought I’d come at this chat from a record label co-founder, with my Shanghaied Records hat on instead of the blog owner.  In this podcast we chat through Jason's career, how submithub came about, blogging in general and then he gives his tips on using the platform for promotion. And stick around till the end there is a special giveaway to those that make it to the end.

022 - Soldier to DJ Climpo, raising money for Combat Stress along the way
Today, I have an interview. It’s a story that interested me for a while, John Climpson (DJ Climpo) emailed me way back last year and I wanted to cover what he’s been doing but didn’t have the medium to do it. Once I launched this podcast, it was the perfect setting for it. So, today I’m joined by John.  John joined the Army at 16, while he had a very rewarding and fulfilling career, his real struggles began to surface when returning from Afghanistan in 2010. Lacking purpose, uncontrolled emotions and several of life’s hurdles took him to the point where he almost lost everything. Above all he was losing the battle with his mind! But even in the depth of his darkest days, there was a shimmer of light. John's debut track Valhalla, which is in collaboration with Austrian producer Hertenfels, is an analogy of Climpo’s challenges within. It highlights the worst times of his internal suffering, to the point where he felt all hope was lost.   So I chatted to John about his journey so far.

Today, I had scheduled a motivation podcast, which would have gone out first thing this morning and you might get that at some point down the line.  I’ve pulled that one as I wasn’t personally feeling very motivational so thought it would be wrong to put out motivational content in that form. So instead, i've taken you through my 8 hour day in 8 minutes or so and the emotions and roller coaster i've been through today.

020 - Press Photos, what do you need as a DJ?
Today, I wanted to drill and talk about press photos As an editor of a website, I get to see 100s if not 1000s of shots per month and year.  As a label co-founder, we use press shots differently still. Even for myself and my own press shots, I use them differently again. For the uninitiated press, photos are hi-resolution images of you, which in days gone by were usually for magazines, newspapers, articles. These days the press photo has much much more uses from Instagram photos, facebook headers right up to those big Ibiza billboards or whole sides of building as is Hard Rock Ibiza and those have seen Solardo’s face on it. What do you need as a DJ, what are the specifics?
