Samuel Valenti IV is the founder of Ghostly International, the label releasing the likes of Tycho and Mathew Dear. But there is more to Ghostly empire. The Drip.fm service built and owned by Sam enables dedicated fans to subscribe to all the releases put out by a certain label on monthly basis, a business model very close to traditional music streaming as we know it. Drip labels include Smalltown Supersound, Ninja Tunes, 50 Weapons, Ninja Tune and Clone Records.
Sam will be speaking about the evolution of music label into a startup. About building upon learnings of 15 years of connecting artists to fans.
