King Middle School

 

 

(Atlanta, GA) The Academy founders DJ Drama, Don Cannon, and Trendsetter Sense will take over Atlanta September 9th & 10th with a series of inaugural events to launch their new DJ collective. Philadelphia natives Drama, Cannon and Sense believe The Academy venture allows them to give back to the music industry by providing leadership to DJs, artists, and up and coming industry executives. It also gives them a platform to encourage youth to be positive influences in their schools and community. “DJs are the ultimate influencers through music. We know the media can paint a negative picture when it comes to young people, but there are a lot of young people out there doing good things. We want to highlight these “positive influencers” and encourage them to continue doing good work,” Don Cannon explains.

DJ DRAMA, DON CANNON AND DJ TRENDSETTER SENSE REUNITE TO LAUNCH THE ACADEMY

DJ DRAMA, DON CANNON AND DJ TRENDSETTER SENSE REUNITE TO LAUNCH THE ACADEMY

Founders of the Aphilliates form strategic alliance of rated next DJs

(Atlanta, GA) The founders of one of the most progressive DJ clique’s in hip hop; DJ Drama, Don Cannon and DJ Sense have reunited to take over the music industry with their newest endeavor The Academy. Years ago the trio travelled from Philadelphia to attend Clark Atlanta University where they became one of the most influential forces in new school hip-hop. The Aphilliates singlehandedly fused East coast bravado with the new southern hip hop sound, which singlehandedly lead to mixtapes becoming the #1 underground marketing tool in hip hop and resulting in “rapstar” status for southern hip hop royalty such as TI, Young Jeezy, Yo Gotti, the Aphilliates front runner DJ Drama and many more. Their aggressive approach to mix tape promotion changed the game of music distribution, triggering new laws for music piracy. Today, almost a decade later, the trio are reuniting to create the next generation of influential radio/club/promo DJs and music executives entitled The Academy. “With the Aphilliates we didn’t plan for that magic to happen that way, it just happened.  We knew we had something special with the three of us, but there was a lot we didn’t know. We’ve learned a lot since then.  We’ve all had successes outside of the collective, but there is strength in numbers, strength in collaborating so the time is right for us to do something on a bigger level with what we’ve accomplished,” says DJ Drama.

DJ Irie: Branding the DJ

February 20, 2013 Leave a comment

dj irieBy BIG CED

Interning has always been encouraged, especially in the world of entertainment where most things are usually learned from being hands-on. One of the most famous interns just happened to be a man who you may know as Diddy, Puff, Puffy or Puff Daddy, depending on when you were introduced to him.

There are many successful business people who started as interns, but it’s just rare that you hear their stories. This former intern at WEDR-FM 99 Jamz Miami, may be bigger than life these days.

Building a brand is something that is usually taught in business school, marketing classes and any other place but the turntables, yet, the St. Croix native has been building a successful brand without attending these type of classes.

But, it has more to do with actually working with and for the people who come to hear your craft. These days, especially in places like New York, Miami, Paris and England, people don’t want to just hear music. They want to experience the actual connection with the DJ and the music. And that job rests solely on the person responsible for allowing people to leave the venue feeling fully satisfied. DJ Irie is that man.

The Industry Cosign spoke with mega-popular DJ, who gained his love for music as a young student in Jamaica, to talk about his early days in music, marketing and expanding his reach and how important philanthropy is to his brand.

You were once roommates with reggae sensation, Sean Paul. How was that experience and did the two of you imagine breaking out to be ‘stars’ in your selected professions? Read more…
