The Studios 301 IS IT A BANGER? Electronic Music Competition is back for 2017! Since we’ve gone straight to the source this year and enlisted some of the industry’s most respected names as part of our ultimate prize package, we thought we’d give you the opportunity to get to know them a little better.
Archie is the head of A&R for Central Station Records. He is responsible for signing the likes of Bombs Away, Odd Mob and Starley.
Studios 301: Can you give us a bit of background about you?
I’ve been DJing & producing music since I left high school, however these days my focus is more toward the A&R role that I do for the Central Station & Tinted Records. I also manage Odd Mob who are one of the key artists on the Tinted imprint.
Studios 301: What do you think about the prize package and the winners opportunity?
Impressive to say the least, money is always a great prize but in this case the opportunities on offer are priceless.
Studios 301: What’s your involvement?
We are the label releasing the winner.
Studios 301: Why did you want to be involved?
I think it’s a great way to discover new talent and personally I think it will be a really interesting and fun process.
Studios 301: What are your thoughts on local talent and developing it?
It’s hugely important to be developing local talent, not only from a label perspective, but also when you look at what Australian music as a whole has contributed to the industry worldwide. There is so many Aussie’s killing it here and abroad which is such a great thing to see.
Studios 301: Anything else you would like to add?
Big ups to 301 for putting on such a great opportunity!
