Today we are joined by the founder and CEO of Lacuna Records, Edin Skenderi, who reveals some upcoming announcements and his own personal advice for young musicians and entrepreneurs:
What does your job consist of on a day to day basis?
It consists of lots and lots of work. I spend hours promoting releases, designing, finding new talent and helping out others. As tiring as it can be, I love what I am doing and I wouldn’t change for anything.
What do you enjoy most about it?
What I really enjoy a lot about it is that I can connect with lots of artists, label owners, managers and overall meet great people. Over the past years I have been really into EDM and to work with such great people is just so amazing to me!
What’s your biggest achievement to date?
I’d say my biggest achievement label-wise is the immense support from big DJs, radio shows, blogs and YouTube channels. If you told me 4 years ago that I will start a label and the releases will be played around the whole world, I would tell you you are out of your mind!
For the readers looking to pursue a career in your field, do you have any advice for them?
All I can say is to go in there with a clear mindset. Also something that is really important: dedication and positivity. Nothing comes easy and success definitely doesn’t come overnight. Connect with people, help others out and most importantly treat the artists with respect and give them the freedom they need. Respect their art and everything else and I can assure you that success will come.
Who are your favourite artists at the moment?
This is a tough one because I have lot’s of favourites, but if I’d have to pick I’d go for Foxa, Jensation, Droeloe, M.I.M.E, Kloud and Tomatow.
How do you overcome days where you have no motivation?
I usually take the whole day off and go outside. I spend the day listening to music on my phone and thinking about what I can do next. Sometimes I can’t get motivated for days, but in those moments you shouldn’t panic or stress because it will come eventually.
Any recent announcements and/or upcoming stuff you would like to announce to the readers?
There are a few! I have been working with my team to grow a new label called Havok. For Lacuna … we have some big releases coming up which you guys will for sure enjoy and love. There is one thing which we can’t reveal at the moment, but keep an eye out for that!
