Creatives!

We'd like to invite you to be part of The Digilogue. The Digilogue is a community-driven music and tech education platform. Our mission is to redefine learning in music and tech from Artists, Music Creatives, and Industry Thought Leaders.

On February 7th, we're collaborating with our friends at WeWork to curate a conversation on the "Digital A&R". What does it mean to discover, develop, and market artists in this digital age? We're featuring featured panelists Amir Boyd, who's the Senior National Director of Radio Promo at Interscope Records, Ali B who's the Senior Director of Marketing at Atlantic Records, and more!

This is a great opportunity to network, collaborate, and get insight from industry thought leaders.

While finding more talent online than on radio, she set out to launch her music platform 4 years later. for emerging artists to share their talent. The Takeovah exists to fill the void of quality press for emerging artists. As mainstream musicians dominate the airwaves and most large publications, we support the talents that don't have the advantage of a digital following of a million a more; that deserved to be recognized just the same. We're exclusively for emerging artists, and the minds that help them pop.
