It’s back! Welcome to Boom Boom #03, back with all the best from the Danish music scene.

We published the first edition of Boom Boom two years ago because magazines weren’t really covering the Danish music scene at the time. We needed an English-language publication that told attention-grabbing stories about Danish artists, producers and songwriters, and which reported on the Danish music industry as a whole. Think of Boom  Boom as an annual introduction to the Danish scene, directed at music enthusiasts all over the
world.

It’s precisely because of this uncertainty about music’s future that I see a great need for all sorts of new partnerships that transcend conventional thinking, e.g. following the example of DUP (Danish Independent Record Labels) and IFPI, who have, slowly but surely, built up a close working relationship – including on the magazine you are now holding. We also hope to turn Music Export Denmark into a finely tuned launching pad that propels band after band onto the exciting export market. The time is ripe for everybody in the music industry to acknowledge the need to work together to face the future and develop new business models. And I mean everybody – from record labels to rights organisations, interest groups, bookers, managers, etc.
