Our values
Rhythm of risk-taking 🥁🚀

We work on the beat of calculated risk. We fearlessly experiment, identify what works, iterate and rock on. No rewind, only lessons to remind.

In key with transparency 🎼🪟

We ensure everyone's on the same beat. This means we equip our team members with the same chords empowering them to make the right decisions. Diverse opinions compose the sweetest symphonies.

Own your part ✊🎸

We take ownership and earn our stage. We step up for our responsibilities and are proud of what we do.

Creators are our stars 👨‍🎤🤩

Our story

Während des Studiums haben wir Europas größten Musikproduktions-Blog mit über 50.000 monatlichen Lesern aufgebaut, indem wir erfolgreiche Composer über ihr Handwerk interviewt haben. Durch die Interviews mit ihnen wurde uns klar, dass es so viele großartige und inspirierende Musiker gibt, die nie die Chance haben werden, von ihrer Musik zu leben. Das hat uns tief berührt und ist der Grund, warum wir ArtistConnect gegründet haben.
