The Business Side of Music

The Business Side of Music is an interview show designed to help independent artists and songwriters better understand and navigate the music industry. 45-year industry veteran, Bob Bender talks to successful guests from every corner of the industry about their careers to discover the things they did right as well as the lessons they learned from any mistakes they made.


Podcast - Denis Hiller

What is the Electronic Music Scene? Is it a concert, a Rave, a Party? In the electronic music scene, it separates itself from the other norms of music, in that the majority of the artists recording the music, are also the creators of the content, along with being their own producer for the project, and encompasses the aspect of the DJ. The Electronic Music Scene is also more singles driven than say an entire project comprised of 10-12 songs.

Denis Hiller who is the Co Founder and Label Manager for No Face Records speaks with us from Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. No Face Records signs new artists over established artists, and they literally listen to every demo they receive. No Face Records and their staff also provide mentoring and advice with regards to your project, and if your music is good enough to be signed, its a one project deal, with possible distribution where applicable.

No Face Records will also be hosting a Summer Music Production Crash Course in 2021 in the Dominican Republic. Composers and producers are already signing up.
