DIGGIstage gears up for a productive future with new owner

Berlin / Dresden, 2020-12-22

A crazy and challenging year is coming to an end, marked by uncertainty and constantly new bad news. All the more pleasing is the news from DIGGIstage that it will continue in 2021 with a new owner and new music.

In 2019, the founder of DIGGIstage, Maik Schenk, announced to his artists and partners that he would like to retire from the music business as an active producer and artist after more than 25 years. This was also accompanied by the news that he wants to part with his music label DIGGIstage. However, in order to let the idea and the previously released works of the artists live, a new owner was sought and finally found.

He is an artist, performer as well as producer and started his music career with his first single also at DIGGIstage. The Dresden-born Daniel Matka, better known as Duo Madstep, takes over as the new owner of the music label DIGGIstage with new headquarters in Dresden on Jan. 1st, 2021.

Daniel was able to gain a lot of experience in his career so far, both as an artist, but also as a producer. He already created a considerable network, so he is also very well positioned for topics such as collaborations, production, mixing and mastering. To start a music label was only the last logical step. However, Maik Schenk will still work for the label in the background as a consultant and expert for collecting societies, contributing his experience and know-how.

Maik Schenk about the takeover: "I am very happy, especially for my artists, that the idea DIGGIstage will continue to exist and I have found a visionary and enthusiastic new owner in Daniel. So I look with bright eyes into a great future for DIGGIstage."

DIGGIstage at IMSTA FESTA 2018

Every year this special fair for music software takes place in different locations worldwide. Everything revolves around music production. We were at the IMSTA FESTA 2018 at the SAE Institute in Berlin and can say that it is a great event for musicians and producers. Not only well-known manufacturers like Ableton, Native Instruments, iZotope, FabFilter, Sequoia, Presonus and many more were represented, there were also very valuable tips from real professionals and stars of the producer scene at one of the numerous Masterclass workshops.

We met very interesting people, among others the very successful vocal producer Jan van der Toorn  (in the picture on the right), who already produced for big names like Snoop Dogg or Backstreet Boys and is also known as a vocal coach from shows like Popstars (VC of Sandy the No Angels) or from The Voice of Germany (Jamie Lee). A great guy!

At the IMSTA we could take a lot of new stuff with us and expand our skills in production, mixing and mastering.
