Founder Rob Wood heads up the Music Concierge creative team. A record collector since the age of nine, Rob has been lucky enough to combine his passion with his career. As a DJ he played all over the world at clubs like Fabric and The End, and festivals such as V, The Big Chill, Sonar, and Miami Music Conference.
As a music journalist Rob was editor of the ground-breaking music magazine Jockey Slut which gave ahead-of-the-curve early front covers to artists such as Daft Punk, Air, The Chemical Brothers, and Giles Peterson. He has written about music for The Observer, Mixmag, and The Financial Times, and is author of a book about DJ culture.
His inherent drive to bring to people ‘music they didn’t know they would love’ is at the heart of the Music Concierge ethos.
Rob is a Fellow of The RSA (Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce).
Rob has built a highly creative and expert team around him. They draw from their first hand experience of music radio, MTV, record labels, musicianship, DJing, and music consultancy.
Crucially the whole team shares a never-ending hunger for discovering great music. For us it is about unearthing rare, under-played, or forgotten tracks, and keeping our fingers firmly on-the-pulse of contemporary music and new trends.
From bleeding-edge urban cool, to evocative back-catalogue tracks from the past, we are passionate about creating inspiring signature music identities for the brands we work with.
The team’s expertise extends to cover music from all over the globe whether it is European, African, Indian, Asian, Japanese, Arabic, South American or beyond. We also have in-house experience and expertise on styles and audiences’ music tastes in emerging markets.
