Your bargaining power as an artist is in your ability to walk away!

Lavatory Records

The term bargaining power is a concept that was widely discussed by economist Michael Porter, when he conceptualised the “Five Forces Theory”. This framework as developed by Porter is a business industry analysis tool to measure a business’s performance in terms of profitability and strategic sustainability. Porter listed these five elements: Threats of New Entrants, Threats of Substitutes, Degree of Rivalry, Supplier Power and Buyer Power. The real reason any business would do an industry analysis is to gain a competitive advantage over other rival firms. Quick MBA gives an extended explanation of Porter’s five forces theory.

Lavatory Records

Still sticking with the theme of the month of July, where KING//HER is establishing the sonic extension of her repertoire away from Techno, TechHouse and Minimal. This time she goes into Electro, Electro House, Hard Dance and other Future category adaptions of EDM (Electronic Dance Music).

With Slayed Selections Episode 14, you would think it’s Valentines day in July -though we are not in 14th day of February  more like closer to the 14th of July . You could say “love is war” on this Valentine’s day slay (slaughter) theme, courtesy of KING//HER’s majesty of the EDM throne.

French music producer Yonea is recre-8ing through his Eighty-Eight Music vision!

Music composers familiar with production hardware would know about one of the earliest drum machines, informally known as the “808”. The 808 machine was the colloquial name for the TR-808 Rhythm composer that was manufactured by the Roland Corporation, which was made for musicians to create samples and demos via digital porting.

This sets the context for a producer from France named Yonea, who in this digital era has created a label called Eighty-Eight (88) Music. In similar likeness to the Roland creation (minus the 0 numeral), Yonea embarked on creating something for musicians worldwide, that is a machinery of works for creating dreams and porting it into music. Not being from a big metropolitan city in France, Yonea has had to make due on the backend of the power of the internet and connecting with artists around the world. What was originally a music record label, has been created into something greater. The number 8 in numerology represents karmic debt and emphasis on “recreation” as an order of balance, which just like Yonea’s career and life thus far, has been all about recreating himself! That has carried over to his beloved Eighty-Eight Music label, which is also in a state of constant recreation.

We spoke to Yonea about his path and discovery of music, everything regarding Eight-Eight Music, his sound and style of music, future plans and just got to know him on a personal level.
