Artist + Label Press
Listen Up’s artist and label press department consists of a large team with extensive experience across print and online world wide campaigns.
Day in day out, we work across major label projects and maintain exceptional relations with the music industry’s biggest players. We’re also just as passionate about breaking the careers of up and coming artists - our expertise in the underground scene allows us to work with some of the most cutting edge labels and acts around. Providing a 360 solution to artist’s press requirements, we can build campaigns from the ground up: taking care of biographies as well as press releases, and providing advice and guidance for every intricate aspect of an artist’s brand.
With in-depth knowledge of the constantly evolving world of press, we can confidently deliver worldwide campaigns with results in every continent. Our experience and long-standing relationships with the world’s largest and most influential publications mean that whether it is an album, tour, single, label or residency, we can provide a campaign tailored to your needs.
Our team have experience running press campaigns for a broad range of events and venues, from underground club nights, world-renowned festivals through to high-end venues, restaurants and hotels.
With a full-time team dedicated solely to events, we create interesting and memorable campaigns tailored to each of our client’s needs. With an in-depth knowledge of the increasingly competitive events climate, we confidently deliver worldwide campaigns delivering results in every continent.
We aim to create campaigns tailored to each individual client’s need, whether building a track through key UK radio tastemakers, developing an artist towards a playlist push, or establishing promotional radio partnerships for festivals. We look for the best promotional opportunities for artists, including flagship events for Radio 1, Kiss and Capital, on air interviews, live sessions and guest mixes. We work closely with the national radio stations and various playlists and production teams to provide you with results in every campaign.
Our National Radio department covers radio servicing across the whole of the UK. We plug to all key shows on BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra and 6 Music, Capital FM and Kiss FM networks and an extensive spread of regional specialist radio shows.
Specialist Radio + Club
Here at Listen up we work very closely with all specialist radio presenters and producers across the globe from our UK office.
Rest of World Specialist Radio
Our specialist radio and club department operates from our UK office, working closely with all specialist radio presenters and producers across the globe. We have daily meetings across all stations and aim to gain exposure for your project on a global level. We work out strategic timelines for radio with targeted roll out plans, looking to confirm high level single and remix premieres.
US Mix Show + Dance Radio
Similarly to our rest of world specialist radio service, we have great working relationships with all key mix show and dance radio panel presenters and producers which are handled by our team from our LA office. We secure mix show plays and support at these stations with a view to playlist rotation adds, booking in key radio promotion to support tours, events and releases.
Using our substantial relationships with A-List globally touring DJs, we service these tastemakers to gain personal reactions and chart support, allowing the label or artist to encourage DSPs to support with profile on their stores. We aim for the highest possible chart positions with both Cool Cuts and Buzz Chart as part of this service.
With the popularity of streaming erupting in recent years, success across streaming apps is critical to promoting music globally. Listen Up builds relationships with independent playlist curators to get your music heard. We devise an individual approach to each campaign to achieve the best possible coverage for a release, with the ultimate aim of engaging an audience as wide as possible for our clients.
