The music industry is arguably the most competitive field, making it difficult for new talent to break into the global scene — especially DJs.
Ascend Agency is working with Digital Music News to create opportunities for artists to be visible to the music industry.
DJs have limited opportunities, and as a result, many are willing to work for low pay or for free, making it much harder for new DJs to stand out. But a few have defied the odds cementing their spots in the industry. One such example is fast-rising DJ/influencer, Charlie Muiño.
Despite his brief career, Charlie has made a name for himself with his work attracting massive attention. His remixes have been praised by artists and fans alike, garnering thousands of views across streaming platforms. He has performed at some of the top clubs in the country and beyond. According to the young DJ, one of his goals is to continue growing his brand and become a global sensation. Charlie wants to play in nightclubs and events worldwide as he shares his passion for music.
To achieve this goal, he knows he needs to focus on building his brand and developing a unique style that sets him apart from others in the industry. Charlie plans to invest heavily in DJing skills from mixing, beatmatching, and prep. He is learning things like how to mix in key, create his own loops, and understanding the best moments to mix in and out of a track. He believes this will not only help him stand out and better connect with the audience but also give him more control over his sound.
Additionally, Charlie Muiño is focused on building his online presence and network.
He understands that a solid social media presence is essential for building a fan base today and plans to create engaging content across social media platforms, including Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter. He will share clips of his sets, behind-the-scenes glimpses of his life as a DJ, and exclusive content for his followers.
As he accomplishes this, DJ Charlie also uses his platform to encourage young dreamers. When he started his music career, he did not know much about the industry, let alone music structure. He had no idea what phrasing and EQing were, how to ‘gain control’, or the best software to use. But he was ready to learn.
Charlie developed an interest in music, specifically DJing, at a young age, and he promised to make this dream a reality. He invested in research and practiced more to find his style, which is one of the factors that set him apart today. His music is an alternative to famous music that combines different styles to keep the crowd entertained and engaged throughout the show. Charlie draws inspiration from various artists, including Spanish rapper, Quevedo. He describes Quevedo’s style in his album as unique, which highlights his good taste in music and helps him perfectly deliver the intended message.
Charlie plans to continue growing his career, performing at top nightclubs worldwide. He also hopes to release more remixes and independent singles.
