MSCLVR Interview Series #046 w/ Diego Farias, CEO/Cofounder, Amuse – World’s First Mobile Record Company
This episode of the podcast is featuring the one and only Diego Farias – CEO and cofounder of Amuse.io based in – the world’s very first mobile record company catching the attention of powerful music industry hitters including Will.i.am who eventually came on in a co-founder capacity!
So what does a mobile-first record company look like? Well we don’t have to look much further than the app store because it’s here!
Diego and his team sought to answer the question about above but through a different lens – that is – what would record companies look like if the genesis of the industry was taking place today? Artists today are entrepreneurs – they want great control over their content and their destinies…and humans in general are doing more and more crucial daily tasks on mobile devices – and thus, the concept behind Amuse was born.
Couple that with a broader deconstruction of old guard mentalities around rights and ownership and heavy legalese and you’ve got yourself a new age label with free digital distribution at its core which drives the engine of data-driven talent discovery and an overall step forward in the way Artists, Labels, and great music interplay.
I think Diego has done an outstanding job in surrounding himself and the company with real change agents from his founding team to some really powerful advisors. I look forward to watching Amuse grow from what is today a 20-30 person company concentrated in Sweden to a global powerhouse!
