Originally titled “DMM and Friends,” the purpose of our first compilation was to celebrate and feature the artists we managed as well as our friends that we loved and felt deserved recognition. Also we just have an obsession with making mixtapes (ask any of our exes).
Since our first compilation we’ve met so many more artists and restructured our company to benefit a larger demographic of artists rather than just a few that are managed, which is why this one is bigger, better, and badder. At a massive 24 tracks, Essentials 002 is quite literally essential listening for anyone who wants a peek into the underground music of Seattle.
2017 saw Distinction Music Management expand in massive ways, using our skills and knowledge to help a wider variety of artists accomplish their goals. This compilation is an expression of that and (hopefully) radiates the excitement we have going into the new year. <3
