As the founder of WMR Music Group, Matty says, How they started from selling beats on Soundcloud to the opening recording studio in London and clothing stores in major European cities.
The Latvian-based music recording comapny WMR Music Group is working in collaboration with various Hip Hop and Trap music style artists all around world, as well as gaining massive popularity by launching their clothing line #WeMakeMoney
Although WMR Music Group started only in January this year, the company can already be proud of its significant worldwide success.

The company has received great feedback and support from Canadian, Norwegian and English Hip Hop culture fans, where also the
#WeMakeMoney clothing line is mostly distributed. The WMR Music Group shares its merchandise, music and accessories on Social Media, where they have already gained more than 20,000 Followers in Instagram and Facebook.
WMR Music Group is currently working on opening a music recording studio in London, which is scheduled to be launched next year. The distribution of #WeMakeMoney clothing brand and other merchandise will be opening in United Kingdom and Norway.
In collaboration with home-town rapper from Latvia- Chris King, a project is being developed: A Hip Hop culture magazine, which will be available very soon. This is what Eddy, CEO of WMR Music Group had to say: “I usually hear upcoming artists complain about the music industry being difficult to penetrate and lots seem to divert because it looks impossible to become a mainstream artist out here and I don’t blame them.’’ It takes alot to become a mainstream artist when it comes to music. It entails a lot from song production to playing gigs(shows), video production, branding etc.. and when you manage to do all these on your own, you still struggle with promos which happens to be like toughest part.
WMR Music Group is a record label which is being introduced to make the dreams of upcoming artists a reality, they would be given a chance to let the world know how good they are at what they do best.” Now all you have to do is mail your songs to firstname.lastname@example.org for review.
“Until we opened the record company and the distribution of the clothing line, we come to it by accident,” says Matiss, founder of the WMR Music Group. It all started with the purchase of beatpad and by selling beats to artists on SoundCloud page, which did not bring great success. Altough it brought the idea of creating a recording company and working with young musicians. So we did execute the idea by creating website – www.wmrmusic.com and social network accounts, but the company’s first steps were not the best ones. It seemed like it wouldn’t be worth the effort and that It was waste of time, but then everything changed, when we found our first successful customer,” says Matty about the company's founding.
“To become a recognizable and famous artist, it’s hard work, ” says Eddy, CEO of WMR Music Group. “Song production, music video production, and building the brand, that’s not the hardest part of the business… The biggest challenge for young artists is the struggle with publications, promotions and getting shows and tours. And that’s why we are here to help
young artists, because we have the keys for success and we can show the world, how talented they are and how much they love what they do.”
Despite the short duration of the hip-hop culture, the WMR Music Group has made remarkable
achievements, and will undoubtedly continue to grow and develop, spreading its name in the

Why DJ’s are still using DJ turntables even though technology has advanced
Technology has allowed the population to make vast advancements in so many areas of work, life, and play. The DJ world has been blessed with a great deal of technological advancement in equipment and every year yields better products and options when it comes to scratching, beatboxing, and mixing music together. So why is it then that DJ’s are still using turntables even though technology has advanced to the point that they are no longer a critical component of a DJ setup? Here are several reasons as to why DJ’s still choose to use some cool turntables instead of relying solely on technology.
As a beginner, you will truly learn to DJ on a turntable. It is true that new DJ’s should learn how to properly DJ on a turntable. There are many reasons for this depending on who you talk to. Some would agree that it is important to learn on a turntable as you will be able to play on your own and not have to rely on a computer to have a great gig. Others will say that learning on a turntable will help one find their own creative style and flow. When you learn to DJ without the use of a computer, you are truly learning the craft without any handicaps to assist you. In addition, playing on a turntable as opposed to a computer can help you get used to the sounds and be more in tune with the music which helps you in mixing.
Respecting and appreciating those who came before you. There is something to be said for appreciating those who came before you and helped to shape the DJ culture that you are now a part of. Being a DJ was quite a tough gig in the past as you had to transport boxes of vinyl with you and manually sort through each record and label them with stickers and tape to mark different parts of the vinyl so you knew where you needed to place the needle during your gigs. It was quite challenging and took a great deal of skill to be a success. It is important to realize that not everyone had the technology that is available to you and knowing this will help you become a better practitioner of your craft.
Scratching makes you unique. Let’s be honest. There are so many DJ’s in the world and a vast majority of them are looking for work. To be a success, you must set yourself apart from the standard cookie cutter DJ. To do so, you should have skills and abilities that are better than most and one way to do this is to get comfortable with a turntable and start to scratch. As a new DJ this can be particularly important as scratching can help you learn to cue up different songs and mix them appropriately. Scratching is not for everyone and that is okay. However, if you can master a skill that sets you apart from others, your chances of being a success are better than if you are just like everyone else on the DJ circuit.
