Motivational Monday’s Episode 9: Robin Blaauboer – Founder of Chill Planet
Episode 10 is just around the corner which we have something special in-store for you. This weeks episode features a good friend of ours Robin, hope you enjoy this episode. Who are you and what’s your background?
Hi Readers, my name is Robin Blaauboer and I’m the CEO of Chill Planet / Planets Music.
As well I’m doing the social media promotion for a couple of artists I met during the past years. (Mainly Soundcloud and Spotify wise).
I’ve been active in the music industry for about 9 years, I started as a drummer, after that I’ve been into DJ’ing / producing and later on I started my own platform ‘Chill Planet.
What does your job consist of on a day to day basis?
I’m still attending the Herman Brood Academie in Utrecht so I need to combine school / music every day.
For me it’s most of the time having contact with all the artists, searching for new talents, pitching the new songs to our partners and having contact with other managers to get for example a Spotify playlist take-over done.
What’s your biggest achievement to date?
My biggest achievement to date is that I’m working with people I looked up to when I was young.
As well I’m really happy we’ve reached about +30M streams across all platforms.
Any tips and tricks that you wish you knew when you started?
Not really, I’ve been (Still) learning a lot of things from people around me (Especially Jake Huntley from Tuvali) and I’m happy everyone supported us during the past years.
How do you overcome days where you have no motivation?
To be honest, I’ve almost always had motivation to work on my platform ‘Chill Planet!
This is because I get motivated a lot when I look at the last month Soundcloud / Spotify streams and when I know I’ve got a lot of sick productions coming out.
Any upcoming stuff you would like to announce to the readers?
This Friday we’ve got a new song dropping (Free Download) by D-Wayne and Pnut & Jelly, it’s a Bass House banger so be ready for this one!
As well we’re working on our own limited merchandise!
