Music 5 February 2015

In an interview for the Telegraph online, University of Westminster Music Business Management MA alumnus James Garside talks about his role as Product Manager at the Ministry of Sound, his passion for music technology, and about how to break into the music industry.

James took his MA in 2012 and joined the London nightclub and record label Ministry of Sound the same year. He now works as their Product Manager for apps and platforms.

Last year he oversaw the launch of the Ministry of Sound's new radio app, which Apple selected as one of its best new apps last autumn, with hundreds of thousands of downloads since then.

James also has his own radio show 'The Chilled House Sessions Show' on Ministry of Sound Radio from 10pm to 12pm every Thursday.
