Los Angeles music producer, artist and executive set to bridge the gap between independent musicians and industry professionals.
Brian “Excel Beats” Whittaker, a professional music producer and artist, is thrilled to announce his latest DIY Music distribution company, Eclipse Distro and Music Mergers Mobile App. These great strides are part of Excel Beats’ strategy to transition into the executive side of the music tech industry.
Born on March 18, 1986, the Los Angeles based music producer shot to fame early in his career after his work on Grammy Award winning group Bone Thugs N Harmony’s eighth studio album titled “Uni5: The World’s Enemy”. Uni5 went on to peak at #3 on the Billboard US Top Rap Albums Chart and #14 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. Excel Beats’ work includes production of the leading single for the album titled “See Me Shine” which peaked at #10 on the Billboard US Rap Songs Chart.
It didn’t take long before Brian became known for sync licensing and composing for major television and film projects. The talented music executive has over the years performed and worked with top acts such as Grammy Award Nominated and Emmy Nominated band and production group “House Of Vibe All Stars”.
Coming from a long family line of entertainment industry professionals, Brian Whittaker is keeping the legacy with his giant strides. His father Woody Whittaker was a song writer and member of the band Taxie. Excel’s uncle “Lon Fontaine” is also famous for being one of America’s top choreographers in the 1980’s. Fontaine, who worked with The Temptations, is popular for designing their signature microphone stand. His uncle’s Armstead and Norman were both touring percussionists who played for Ella Fitzgerald, the most popular female Jazz singer in the United States for more than half a century.
Excel Beats is set to achieve greater heights with his legacy. The music guru recently co-founded Music Mergers, which is bridging the gap between independent musicians and industry professionals by providing independent artists with education, guidance and clarity in such a rapidly changing and fragmented industry. With Music Mergers, independent musicians have an opportunity to submit their music to vetted professionals.
The 35-year old is proving that he is not slowing down soon. With over 15 years in the industry, Brian is delving more into the executive side of the music industry with his latest projects. He recently partnered with Cosynd to help musicians protect their hard work. With this partnership, musicians are provided with the fastest and most affordable way to protect all their creations with simple copyright registrations and agreements.
Brian understands that to get to greater heights requires hard work and dedication. This is why with each step, the multi-talented music executive is making the most out of every opportunity to become the best he can be.
