Whether you’re a festival, artist, tech, or lifestyle brand—Your story is your identity.
Black Circle Media tells your story through content that merges journalistic standards with the imagination of a creative agency and the results-based mentality of a digital marketing firm.
We execute content strategies for major brands like Red Bull, Steve Aoki, Pulse Radio, and world-class festivals like Electric Zoo in New York City, Oasis in Morocco, and LOOPTOPIA in Taiwan.
With backgrounds running the most highly regarded and widely read publications in culture and music, Black Circle Media has unrivaled experience envisioning and managing large scale content operations.
Prior to founding Black Circle Media, Ross Gardiner and Jemayel Khawaja worked as senior editors at Mixmag and THUMP respectively. Their work has also appeared in The Guardian, Vice, Playboy, Billboard, Los Angeles Magazine, LA Weekly, and The Hollywood Reporter.
Our head of production, Anders Rostad, is a renowned music video and commercial director. He has developed original content for Facebook, Instagram, and Microsoft, and directed music videos for Kaskade and Pretty Lights.
Ross Gardiner lead Mixmag’s stateside expansion and its hugely popular live-streaming platform the Lab, while Jemayel has produced and hosted video projects across the Vice Media network.
The electronic music audience is one of the most coveted target markets for brands to connect with. Black Circle Media speaks the language of dance music, because we live the culture.
If you’re branding a festival, launching a platform, planning an activation, or simply exploring the electronic music space, Black Circle can navigate the demographics, trends, knowledge, and relationships you need to succeed.
Traditional models of publicity and PR are outdated. If you really want to get noticed, you have to think big, think bold, and think one step ahead of the game.
Through publicity activations, guerrilla marketing, social media, and media management, Black Circle will get your story told loud, often, and on your terms.
Sometimes, you just need words. Black Circle efficiently provides verbiage for business-to-business documents, press releases, websites, and email correspondences.
Every member of our team is a noted journalist with vast experience in both implementing and running editorial projects.
