Published

on

Angelo Raguso is an Italian disc jockey and music producer. He has published electronic music releases on some of the most hot music labels on the electronic business, such us Spinnin’ Records, El Row, Hotfingers and many more .


Who is Angelo Raguso ?

I am a young boy of 26 who lives in Italy, precisely in the south.
I’ve always been passionate about technology, social media, cinematography and many other things.

What’s your main genre ?

I started producing minimal and techno, which in 2008-2012 was very awesome, i released dozens music for years with this genre. Receiving important supports from Fatima Hajji, Umek, Hollen and other known names on the techno genre.

In 2014, together with my partners Camilo Valderrama and Stamen, we published on Spinnin ‘Records, one of the most famous labels in the world in the field of EDM, “Enjoy The Deep“, a deep-house track, with softer and lighter melodies. From here I moved to tech-house, house, deep-house, and I have released many other productions on these sounds

2 personal Steps to Success for who want to start a career on the music biz?

  • Don’t follow the fashion, don’t copy the music of others, at most take it as inspiration, and then try to create something of your own. Every musician, composer, should have his sounds to differentiate himself from others. Otherwise you’ll always be a copy, one of many!
  • With the second, I will be simple and of few words: “Don’t do it for money“. Many kids think that by making music you will become rich and famous. But if you start with this assumption, you won’t go anywhere. You have to do it first of all because you feel it inside, you have to love what you do. Then if you are good at it, obviously success comes gradually

Use the internet to your advantage, always listen to new music, discover what people like to hear on the clubs, always experiment with new production techniques, create something that has not yet been proposed by anyone, ask advice from others in the sector, and learn all you can. Only then can you succeed and become, day after day, the GOAT in what you do.

Angelo Raguso, alias FAW9 : For almost ten years, he has dealt with electronic music, first as a Music Producer, releasing his music on top Labels in the sector, such as Spinnin 'Records, Elrow, Trax Records, Freakin909, Hotfingers and many others, to name a few, and then as a Label Owner for various record labels that launched and then sold or entrusted in permanent management to various collaborators.

The Most Watched Gossip Channel In Italy on Youtube : SocialBoom

Published

on

socialboom

SocialBoom, is the name of Francesco’s channel (whose surname is unknown). He started republishing Instagram stories, of the most famous public figures in Italy, creating gossip, as people could go to see and review his videos, on the channel, having lost them on Instagram. In all this, it ranks as the first channel in Italy in the niche of gossip and public-news. In a short time it exceeds 370,000 subscribers and 60 million views, all of which are constantly increasing

You receive a lot of criticism and especially threats, what drives you to go on?

Keeping people informed with an impartial source, different from all the others, who obscure and do not talk about certain news in order to obtain favours from artists. Insults and threats are worth zero, just see who they are made by, I only consider them if they are made in a sincere way by people I esteem professionally.

How did you come up with the idea of creating this type of channel?

The channel was born from a need: Instagram Stories are automatically deleted after 24 hours, so on Youtube give the chances to see them after their expiration even after months or years. Afterwards, looking at them every day, I continuously noticed logical threads between stories of various artists that led to the assumption of engagements, quarrels or other. Together with some information that I collected from external people who went around various clubs, cities and events, I was able to give some scoops with extreme security in national preview. The Stories have therefore become in many cases a side dish and no longer the main dish.

What’s the reason for your success?

Success is an exaggerated term. I can handle it. I just think in a weird way and I want to do things, I see and conceive things that other people don’t even consider, but they seem interesting to me, when I’m convinced of something I start working continuously until I can make it come exactly as I had it in my head, putting it in the foreground of all the things that are important to other people that they wouldn’t normally give up.

Thanks to SocialBoom!

Meet D.Beezy – American Rapper and Recording Artist

Published

on

D.Beezy is an American Rapper and Recording Artist. He has his songs published on some of the biggest streaming services in the business such as Pandora Music, Tidal, Spotify and many more.

Who Is D.Beezy?

I’m an artist. I love to write lyrics and record music, I engineer everything from the beginning to the end. All of it is self-taught. I’ve been writing and recording for a little over a decade now. I’m 30 years old and I live in the beautiful state of Tennessee. Knoxville to be exact.

What is your main genre?

I’m not really sure if you can just be specific but I would say Rap / Hip Hop. I started back in 2009 pretty steady before taking about 8 months off in 2018. I’m back at it with full force and making more progress than ever.

In 2018, the reason for the break I took was just to reflect. I just kind of got discouraged because things weren’t happening for me like I thought they should. I was releasing everything for free on SoundCloud. I have since linked with distribution and I have come so far in the last year.

What would be your 2 best pointers for anyone wanting to make a name for themselves in the music business?

  • Don’t be so focused on numbers. Just be consistent with releasing content and self-promoting it as well as marketing ads on social media. If you music is good and you are consistent to keep listeners engaged, the rest will fall into place.
  • Invest in yourself! If you can’t invest into yourself then how do you expect labels to want to invest in you? Know your worth. Do your research and learn new marketing strategies etc. Be sure you use some sort of distribution from Distrokid, Ditto etc.
  • Be sure to stay up to date and follow trends but also put your own twist on things. You don’t want to be out here sounding like everyone else. Sure it’s cool, but is it you? You can play around with production and post-editing and try to find that new sound that hasn’t been discovered yet that makes you sand out. Whether it be in producing a new beat or even vocals and singing. Whatever you do, just make sure you do it with a purpose and I promise you that you will do big things and go far!
