Ben Brown-Bentley is the Head of Events at Monstercat, an award-winning electronic music record label. Having existed in a digital landscape of live-streaming and gaming pre-covid, he shares his perspective on digital advancement in art and entertainment and the impact the pandemic has had on the expansion of artistry online. Monstercat does things a little differently when it comes to record labels. They are a digital-first label with a diverse, international following. They have steered away from exclusive contracts and instead work to amplify artists with established brands on a track-by-track basis. Monstercat has become a reputable name in the electronic music and gaming spaces. They are intent on using their label to foster thriving online and offline community of artists and fans.
