Michael Campbell - CEO BLack on Purpose Television (BOP TV)
Brooklyn West Records - Universal Music Group Distribution Representative:
Michael is a distinguished Musician, Composer, Producer,
Musical Director and an extraordinary music Educator!
At the mere age of 15, his band, New Experience, was a semi-finalist in a CBS Records talent competition held at the Billie Holiday Theater in Brooklyn, New York.
Recognized for remarkable talent, the emerging musical
prodigy was chosen as an apprentice of Atlantic Records (co-founded by Herb
Abramson) at A-1 Recording Studios in New York City. Diligently working as an
Assistant Engineer to such artists as Bernard Purdy, Lloyd Price, Otis
Blackwell, Roy Ayres (and countless other musical pioneers who specialized in
abounding forms of music; even dozens of Broadway soundtracks) provided
essential training from Master Recording Engineers and Producers. This
priceless privilege equipped Michael Campbell with the utmost knowledge of
production, mastering, mixing and microphone placement techniques. Equipping
himself with these invaluable skills has help to erect Michael Campbell’s
invincible musical foundation. Many of today’s engineers are incapable of
delivering half of Michaels effortless artistry.
Conscious of time’s emphatic hands, Michael sought to challenge himself so that his sound would remain fresh and appreciated. As fate would have it, Michael Campbell was bound to run across Michael Williams. Instantly their competitive work compelled them to make award-winning history. As a songwriting and production partner, of legendary producer, Michael “Keyboard Money Mike” Williams; these two are aptly referred to as The Power Team. As they’ve collaborated both stateside and abroad their paired genius will always be available for other’s listening pleasure.
Producer/Engineer/Musician/Composer/Music Director for the following companies; Colisa Records, B-Boy Records, Atlantic Records, Tsob Records, DreamWorks Records, Arista Records, Profile Records, Sasoul Records, Spring Posse Records, MCA Records, Brunswick Records, West End Records, Prelude Records, TVI Records, Vangard Records, Sound of New York Records, P&P Records, Queen Constance Records, Chocolate City Records, York Records.
Just as the public expanded its auditory palate; Michael began investing into Hip-Hop while it was still in its infancy. Being one of the inaugural Hip-Hop producers enabled the beatsmith to establish connections with B-Boy Records. Not only was Michael producing for the label; he also contributed his copious abilities as both a skilled engineer and musician (playing the Drums, the Bass, the Guitar, and the piano). B-Boy’s artists, JVC Force, Boogie Down Productions, KRS One and many others have gone on to great success. MC Lyte's first producer. Michael was one of the first to integrate live musicians within Hip-Hop. Independent Hip Label Pioneers, Paul Winley, Eddie O' Loughlin and Bobby Robinson all worked with Michael Campbell and acknowledged his musical acumen.
At present as the Founder/CEO of Brooklyn West Records, an innovative record label, which is positioning itself to become the paragon of the independent labels as it embraces digital distribution. After securing a distribution and support services deal through Universal / Bungalo Records, Michael Campbell’s is amassing a cache of creativity will be implemented as he erects his empire through Brooklyn West Records, working in conjunction with Entertainmentfirst, Inc. and the Music & Fashion Expo, it has allowed Mr. Campbell to reach artists from around the world.
