James Sloane | Artistic Director [Basement Flavor]
I eat, sleep*, and breathe marketing and promotion. It’s my passion, my calling, my contribution to the culture.
Born in the same year that Hip Hop was created, I am a Rhode Island native who has also lived in San Diego, California, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
My journey in promotion started in 1998 when I curated my first open mic/performance workshop. Since then, I’ve gone on to curate numerous events and workshops, including Round Midnight for The Providence Black Repertory Company. My experience promoting for major labels and brands such as LRG, Fader Magazine, Rawkus Record, XBOX, and Landspeed Records has given me the skills to leverage technology to grow brands.
While I miss the days of wheat pasting, dropping off flyers at record stores, and hand-to-hand promotion, My core philosophy is that you can’t fight technology. You have to embrace change and find ways to leverage it to amplify yourself.
Promoting something you believe in is the greatest feeling in the world. And with a quality product, it’s easy to make people care. That’s what promotion is all about: connecting people to products they care about.
