Endorsements

The ATC philosophy has always been pretty tightly aligned with B2M’s independent sensibilities, and Matt and Dan have worked across a number of campaigns with us in the last decade. They look at the overall business proposition for each artist and bring a mixture of realism, enthusiasm, campaign structure and creative thinking, plus they are always up for a wider debate on ‘the state of things’. We’ve enjoyed working with both of them over the years.

I couldn‘t have done it without Matt, who helped me relaunch my label and market an album and four singles (3 of which were playlisted on Radio 2 )

Holly Johnson (Artist)

BMG Catalogue has worked with Matt many times in recent years, and enjoyed great success on campaigns as eclectic a bunch as Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds “Lovely Creatures” and The Kinks “The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society” 50th anniversary, and also with the likes of Madness, Bruce Dickinson, Dimitri From Paris/Salsoul, Propaganda, Slade and Frankie Goes To Hollywood. In every situation, Matt has provided a first grade, detailed, global service with excellent communications to the UK and all those involved around the world.

Didier Dehauteur (BMG Catalogue)

Working with Matt is fantastic. He has a great worth ethic, and always presents thoroughly researched and really specifically tailored ideas, with a total understanding of what I’ve achieved to date, want to achieve, and need to fill the gaps. I’ve always felt like he’s known my project inside out and has been flexible and amenable every time things have shifted or needed to shift, being a huge asset to my career.

It’s always a pleasure to work with Matt. He’s creative, knowledgeable, reliable, good fun and into the music. Congratulations on 10 years at band2market!

Keith Wozencroft

I have always loved working with the team at B2M. They have a brilliant view of the ecosystem around an artist’s team and how all the moving parts fit together. From the live promoter’s point of view I can’t think of a company I’d rather work with when an artist chooses to go down the independent route. Rather than just being seen as a mug who’s risking the money on a tour B2M treat us as an essential member of the team the artist will need on board for a successful release campaign.’

Steve Tilley (Kilimanjaro)

I have worked with Matt on a number of project over the years, he is hard working, a pleasure to deal with every day and know’s his stuff !

Working with Matt at Band2Market has been the best decision in our music career. Being a producer, musician and label manager is quite a lot of work and we can easily get distracted playing one role more then the other. Having Matt with us keeps us grounded and focused. He is super connected and brings amazing professionals to work in our campaigns, at the same time, keeps us on the loop pushing our limits for us to give the best we can. It’s just amazing to work with such a lovely and focused person.

Matt Learmouth (Alchemy PR)

We’ve worked with Matt Dixon as well as Dan for the whole ten years Band2Market has existed – prior to that we worked with Matt at EMI for many years. I can honestly say that Matt is one of the most talented marketers we have ever worked with, and after all these years, he’s still a genuine music-lover as hungry as ever to deliver for his impressive roster of artists. We should know as he constantly pesters us to deliver more and more for his acts that Renegade are working on – you just don’t get this boundless enthusiasm from so many in the music industry. We’ll forgive his dry Manc humour and priorities on who is the greatest electronic band ever, for now. Would recommend Band2Market everytime. Well done on the first ten years, gents, and long may you continue.

It’s a positive and thoroughly worthwhile experience having them on the team for a campaign.

Greg Lowe (United Talent Agency)

Matt Dixon at Band2Market is always the first person i would recommend to any artist wishing to get their music marketed around a release.

Special Requests Club Promotion

My initial encounter with Matt at Band2Band was when I tasked to oversee the Re-release of The Kinks are the Village green Preservation Society’ by Ray Davies and BMG. What first impressed me was Matt’s advanced planning, attention to detail and his diligence in getting everything just right for the Client to ensure all opportunities ran smoothly. He also followed up to make sure the Promo opportunity was well received. Ray, Dave & Mick felt in safe hands with Matt and he gets up really early too!!!
