Most companies put an "About Us" or "About Our Company" section on their website. Here at Sykophunk Productions, we'd rather talk about you first. After all, it is our fans, our friends, and our family that make everything we do possible and worthwhile.
You are a music lover. You're not just a casual fan; music is your life. It's there when you wake up, when you're driving, while you're on the internet, working, studying,hanging out with friends, whatever. Music is just as important to your existence as breathing and eating.
You appreciate the creativity behind great songs, and you're always looking for something new and interesting to listen to. Your musical tastes are diverse, and you like hearing different styles blended together. And you are over all the pre-packaged clichés and gimmicks that the mainstream record labels try to pass off as music.
Sound about right? How do we know so much about you? It's because the minds behind Sykophunk Productions are also music lovers. We're not business executives, we're artists. We don't have customers, we have people. People who believe in what we stand for and inspire us to keep doing what we do. Without our people, we have no purpose. Without you, we are not us.
We make sykophunk: epic artcore, grimey poetry, apocalyptic party anthems, horror backdrops, hybrid hip hop and cinematic soundscapes. Music that often pushes boundaries and challenges the norm, hopefully provoking thought and/or invoking emotion.
Our mission is to keep a creative/commercial balance, with a style and sound that is experimental yet accessible, and to stay true to our DIY underground roots by keeping our operation 100% independent. We also vow to donate much of our proceeds from live events to various charities.
LABEL: We produce, release and promote music and merch from our roster of talented artists - joe DOE, Dostah Shilailee and BL8 + collaboration projects. Albums, mixtapes, digital exclusives, videos, compilations, live shows and more.
PRODUCTION COMPANY: We have a network of artists and labels we work with on many levels. Whether we're producing beats and instrumentals, mixing/mastering, making promo videos, graphic design, writing bios & press releases, etc. we offer our services with the indie budget and/or the barter system in mind. We also have experience in coordinating and promoting live events.
SOUNDTRACKS/LICENSING: Outside-the-box music for licensed use in other media, plus custom scores, soundtracks and sound design work.
