Rob Analyze of Jamvana hits Wiggle 9/19 with Wes Smith, Omega Squad and SpeakerGhost

BOOM! Thought it was over after Burning Man? Nope, Agent 137 continues her missions to talk with industry leaders to gather important intelligence. This intelligence is meant to bridge Wes Smith’s audiences together with knowledge of what other promoters/labels/artists are doing in other parts of the country and around the world. This particular mission was to speak with Robert E. Leigh (Rob Analyze), owner of Jamvana, to hear what he is doing with this project and hype up this weekend’s Wiggle in San Diego:

Who is Rob Analyze?

What is Jamvana?

Jamvana started as a music retailer in 2008 and in 2011 we began to focus on becoming a content platform to deliver content to music retailers. We have about 400 labels and 1000 artists that we do artist & label branding focus. Our focus is on marketing in motion and revenue and we are always going toward the cutting edge of what is next.

What is next for Jamvana?

We are focusing on development, creating apps, VST Plugins and also becoming a leader in the sample pack world.

jamvana3Tell me why streaming is the future:

It’s changed from 10 years ago. You used to be able to throw a tune on Beatport and sell 1000 units. It’s become over saturated with producers and it’s just not as easy to find good music as it was before plus attention spans are shorter so the life of a tune is much shorter. Also apps like Spotify and being able to DJ off a stream has changed the game. We want to push good artists on a quality stream to both monetize for us/them and give the music consumer a better product. We can also then move to app growth, license it out and then offer quality customer support.

How did Jamvana and Wes start working together?

We love what Wes is doing and want to help him succeed. Juice Recordings is one of our first labels and Wes as an artist that is on point with every aspect of his game right now. Juice is doing everything a label should be doing and more . It’s hard for an artist to accomplish what he has (and continues to do so) and it’s what we look for as a company and ally in the industry.

Robert is the owner of Jamvana and is also known as the artist Rob Analyze. He has been a part of the scene for years and is heavily involved in several projects in addition to Jamvana. You can check him out at Wiggle this weekend in San Diego and if you are not in the area, click below and check out his Soundcloud.

It’s Wes Smith Yo! Ready for the Wiggle in San Diego, CA!

Wes Smith and his Magic Fugu float downstream for Wiggle in his home town of San Diego.  I spoke to promoter Brian Millar about the event at Kava Lounge this Friday.

Tell me a little how you put this event together with Juice Recordings:

We are trying to concentrate on a local event and to bring in quality talent. The focus is exclusively breakbeat which is unique to this area. Wes Smith (of Juice Recordings) and myself have lunch every week and discuss the logistics. We have all had a series of events and successes so we bring experience to the table.

Walk me through a Wiggle night, how do you book your shows?

We usually have 4 acts per night. We start with someone local that deserves the chance and then add guests from out of state with Omega Squad and Wes Smith as the residents.  We market to all the different teams and when it is show time, we and the crowd get loose and have a good time.

Alright give us the skinny on the show. Who, what, where, when?

Wiggle is a bi-monthly event in San Diego.  May 29th we are featuring EricRiggsbee (Oakland) and special guest Ghost MD alongside Wes Smith and Omega Squad for only $10. Come down and get loose with us!

Thank you, Brian. Many wishes to you all for a successful Wiggle!

Check out a few recent mixes from this weeks Wiggle line up.
