Behind The Scenes

The world of electronic music is shaped not only by artists and fans, but also by thousands of independent businesses, from clubs to booking agents, publishers and promoters. It is the network of these companies on which the vitality of our scene depends. Behind The Scenes is a series highlighting passionate people making a meaningful contribution to electronic music in a variety of different ways. 

The fifth instalment of Behind The Scenes features Dane Bradshaw, Head of Sync at Ministry of Sound Publishing. After working in music journalism, radio production and running his own PR company, Dane decided to restart his career at the age of 28 and took a sync internship at Universal Music. Nowadays, he’s the key touchpoint between Ministry's catalogue of writers and their clients including advertising agencies, production houses and film studios.
The fourth instalment of Behind The Scenes features José Woldring, founder of The Media Nanny, one of the leading PR agencies in the electronic music industry with clients ranging from underground talents to superstar DJs. José explains how she balances her life as CEO of a well-established company with her hobbies outside of work and the countryside of Holland.
