We are sharing our recent interview with multi-talented Daniel , founder and owner of Battl Victory Records.
Pro Media Mag : First of all tell us about the start of your professional career?
Daniel : I was on vacation, sitting at home on the couch and wrote a lyrics again. Incidentally, I rummaged a little on the Internet especially on YouTube and suddenly came to me the idea to start a company. There were so many talented young musicians who probably never really got the chance to make it happen.
As a normal worker, I have long been dissatisfied with how the companies treat one. So I could change that as well. Then I just drove off and registered my record company. Very spontaneous everything. Opened an online shop and looked for partners and artists.
Pro Media Mag : Who or what inspired you to launch Battl Victory Records?
Daniel : On the one hand there was my brother DJ and on the other hand I found by chance a young artist from Seattle called Alli on YouTube. Where music has always fascinated me. It brings together people of all strata, no matter where they come from or who they are.
You can see that very nicely at festivals. Music is also a medium, in my opinion the only medium that manages to heal mental wounds, to awaken memories or to put oneself back in his childhood. You can be very creative in the profession and nothing is impossible. You meet special people and make contacts worldwide.
Pro Media Mag : From the managing events to artists you have been a lot there. It seems you enjoy your work?
Daniel : Yes it is incredibly beautiful. I almost do not regret starting it. On the one hand, it is a challenge, sometimes very stressful, to organize everything, to do justice to the musicians and organizers, but on the one hand to be very satisfying then to see the result.
When you look behind the stage, you can see people dancing, singing and simply having an unforgettable evening. It really pays to work through a couple of days.
Pro Media Mag : Tell us about your recent projects?
Daniel : There are several. I always work on a lot at the same time to accomplish everything. Most interesting, however, is probably the song recordings and single releases by Herr Schmidt. This is an artist who sings in German and English. Very rocking and with the lyrics he deals with topics that concern the world. The CD is coming soon. But the single releases are listening on Spotify, iTunes and all popular platforms.
Furthermore, the contact with a Czech model named Mia was very beneficial. Here we have been working together for some time now.
Pro Media Mag : You are also a songwriter, what kind of songs you normally write?
Daniel : Yeah, that’s right. But these are distributed under the stage name Battl so that I keep an overview.
That is very different. It always depends on how was my day or the week. What did I experience? What concerns me at the moment. Much is about my life and my feelings. Good and bad. I also try to make the text always the same, whether in English or German, which people can identify with but also think about it. As a producer, I also use different genres from rock to electro influences to ballads.
This is my way of getting people close to me and myself.
Pro Media Mag : Do you work with any specific genres?
Daniel : Basically, I try to be as open as possible and versatile. But here also the personal feeling reaches a lot of influence and I like to listen to Rock and Electro. That’s why I like to work with it.
Pro Media Mag : Have you set some target to achieve?
Daniel : Yes, certainly. Without goal or goals, it does not work. I want to be able to change a little in the run-down music business and various company policies. Sign more young talented musicians and put them on the radio, television and on stage. It’s nice to hear old songs, but there are many new great songs by unknown artists. I’m also active worldwide and not just in one country.
That’s why I would like to set up a location in several countries to be closer to my musicians and the people. Some examples would be America, Canada and Australia. Thus, I create at the same time modern and many jobs and can support families.
Pro Media Mag : Are you currently working on any other project?
Daniel : Yup, as before, I work on several projects. The expansion of the company with the different locations. Also, more and more partners are being sought.
I always try to recruit new artists and musicians. As mentioned earlier the Seattle lady would be very interesting. But there is still a lot of work to do here.
Herr Schmidt has to be further promoted to release his CD and another band, which I can not name here, I apologize, will release their CD soon. The online shop is to be expanded and also the media presence. So there is still a lot to do. It never gets boring and the work never goes out.
Pro Media Mag : What’s the best way to get in touch with you?
Daniel : The best way to get in touch is definitely via our website www.battl-victory-records.com
But you can also reach me via various social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp and Google Plus.
