The electronic music audience is one of the most coveted, yet difficult target markets for brands to connect with. Black Circle Media speaks the language of dance music, because we are a part of the culture. You can’t fake authenticity.

If you’re branding an artist, launching a platform, planning an activation, engaging in market research, or simply exploring the electronic music space, Black Circle can navigate the demographics, trends, knowledge, and relationships you’ll need to succeed.

The keys to a successful social media presence are a clear identity, an authentic voice, and consistent execution. Your enthusiasm has to be real before your influence can grow. That’s where we come in.

Black Circle members have orchestrated many a viral sensation, but know that a good social media presence is about more than just “likes.” It’s about creating a living expression of your identity that fans can interact with.

Sometimes, you just need words. Black Circle efficiently provides verbiage for business-to-business documents, press releases, websites, and email correspondences.

Bios, speeches, open letters, manifestos, guides, op-eds, and more. If there’s a message you need to get across, we know how to get it done with style and efficiency.
