The advent of technology has seen much of the music industry taken from the hands of the few and placed back in the hands of the many, with everything from recording to distribution being able to be done from the comfort of your own home or studio.
While the do-it-yourself movement has its obvious advantages and drawcards, certain parts of the musical wheel still need to be handled by the professionals, and as hard as we try to cover all bases ourselves the harsh reality is that most of us will need help at some stage of the process.
While the options when looking for a team to work with or behind you and your music are plentiful, it is vitally important to research and question outside influences, but when it comes to music there is no substitute for experience, especially when it comes to getting your music out there and heard.
With this in mind, new kids on the block Dark Escapes have assembled a strong team of people who have not only been involved in the music industry for a number of years, they are also a team of passionate individuals who are musicians themselves and understand the importance of results.
Paul, Ian and Michael from Dark Escapes sat down with HEAVY to talk about the new company, what it provides, and more importantly, how they are going to impact the Australian and global music community.
