Dre of Goodears Streaming talks music career and new app based venture

goodears 2

With a resume that speaks to work with Sickamore, Vinny Idol of D-Block, DJ Cool, Rhythm Shack in addition to collaborations with Dan Da Man to date, Queens native Dre Dedicating the last 7 years to finding his niche and creating a game plan for making an impact Dre’ has prepped the launch of the Goodears Streaming Service which is an extension of the overall empire and brand.

“My goal is to pool all my resources and create an independent network with major label capabilities.”

I caught up with the aspiring mogul recently to get the inside of his new venture as well as discuss other details about his career in music. Check it out below:

Jason Bourne: You have a pretty diverse resume in the music business. Tell us how did you get your start and what was the motivation?

Dre: To be honest I have had a passion for music ever since a young kid. I can remember vividly the crates full of records that my mom owned. My start in the business, was a product of being around a lot and networking my way into various opportunities.

Jason Bourne: You are a Queens’s native correct? The lineage in Hip Hop is so rich in Queens who are some of the influencers that come from the borough that you called home?

Dre: I am most definitely a Queens’s representative. The resume of MCs that were birthed in Queens is almost incomparable when you think about it and it is surely a motivation to all of us following in their footsteps. Run DMC’s first album set the tone for so much in my borough. It was the very first Hip Hop album that I purchased. Add that to seeing LL cool J around the way all the time and I knew what I wanted to be a part of. Later on, with the success of Nas and Mobb Deep’s contributions plus some other things, my path was cemented. .

Jason Bourne: You are a producer – who are some of the artists and brands you have collaborated with?

Dre: I’ve worked with a lot of people but off the top I’d like to mention my collaboration with Vinny Idol from D Block as well as my work with Sickamore and Interscope Records I also was instrumental in the artist development work done with a media company by the name of RockMeTV.

Jason Bourne: At what point did you realize your passion for developing and supporting up and coming artists?

Dre: That came during the transition and evolution of the internet. The people that understood it first became like gatekeepers to the information that artists needed to enhance their brands. I was one of them.

Jason Bourne: Your newest venture is in expanding the platform that you have created for artists by incorporating a streaming service – talk to us about that?

Dre: Goodears Streaming platform is going to be for the exclusive creator without the compromise of creating and getting paid for it. These other streaming competitors are already being occupied by the same marketing dollars that ran the big record labels. So your brand could never get the visibility it needs. And the same content is on repeat.

Jason Bourne: With streaming being arguably the biggest thing in today’s game how do you see Goodears being able to stand alone within the niche?

Dre: That is simple. We refuse to follow trends, and our platform is more creator-friendly.

Jason Bourne: For those who want to get involved with what you have going on, how do they do so?

Dre: Sign up Now!!! Www.Goodearsstreaming.com

Our prayers go out to the family of 2017  XXXTentacion, who was fatally shot this afternoon (June 18).

Upon hearing the initial news of XXX getting shot, dozens of hip-hop artists and producers jumped on Twitter and Instagram to voice their heartbreak. Joey Bada$$, who’s featured on XXX’s No. 1-selling album, ?, almost immediately tweeted out “Praying for my brother X.” The two collaborators hinted at a joint project due out sometime this year.

After dealing with touchy allegations over the past year, XXXTentacion set out to do good by his home state. The Florida native was currently planning to launch his Helping Hand Foundation with his mother, and held a benefit concert for victims of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.

[TECH NEWS] Instagram plans to launch Snapchat Discover-style video hub

instagram-stories-steal-snapchat

Instagram is preparing to unveil a home for longer-form video — a YouTube competitor and its take on Snapchat Discover. According to multiple sources, Instagram will offer a dedicated space featuring scripted shows, music videos and more in vertically oriented, full-screen, high-def 4K resolution. Instagram has been meeting with popular social media stars and content publishers to find out how their video channels elsewhere would work within its app. It’s also lining up launch partners for an announcement of the long-form video effort tentatively scheduled for June 20th.

The public shouldn’t expect Netflix Originals or HBO-level quality. This is not “InstaGame of Thrones.”  Instead, the feature is more focused on the kind of videos you see from YouTube creators. These often range from five to 15 minutes in length, shot with nice cameras and lighting but not some massive Hollywood movie production crew. Average users will be able to upload longer videos too, beyond the current 60-second limit.

Instagram intends to eventually let creators and publishers earn money off the longer videos, though it hasn’t finalized how accompanying ads like pre-rolls and mid-breaks or revenue splits would work. It is not paying creators up-front for shows like Facebook Watch, either. But the videos will each feature a swipe-up option to open a link, which creators can use to drive traffic to their websites, e-commerce stores or event ticketing. Thanks to Instagram’s 800 million-plus users, the video section could be a powerful marketing tool beyond generating cash for creators directly.

The long-form video section will spotlight a collection of popular videos, and provide a “continue watching” option since users might view long clips over the course of several sessions. Users will also see the long-form clips featured on authors’ profiles near the Stories Highlights bubbles. Creators won’t be able to shoot and post long-form videos, as the section will only allow pre-made video uploads.
