(AUDIO) Have You Met Dame Ritter, CEO & Co-Founder Of Funk Volume?

For the past few weeks we’ve worked closer with Funk Volume and CEO Dame Ritter as we partnered to promote the Funk Volume Virtual Hip Hop Conference on 11/22 alongside HipHopDX, HipHopWired, HotNewHipHop, TeamBackpack, Omnia Media, HardknockTV, SkeeTV & DJ Booth and in doing so was inspired to bring him by additional FVHHC media sponsor, Dash Radio for a rare, exclusive interview co-hosted with partners in crime, DJ Base and Chehade The King. The Funk Volume takeover also features a special “Orange And Black Mix” by DJ Beatcrazed with some of your FV favorite songs.

Screen Shot 2014-11-12 at 9.11.19 AM

Dame, endearingly also known as “Mr. Funk Volume” by his artists and FV fans is far from the usual record label executive. While most come from an A&R/artist background or have an “intern to President” type story, Ritter has the education and experience that matches those of high paid business consultants sitting in corporate high rise buildings across the world which he also once did. Even at a young age, in between countless basketball games, Dame found himself hustling to make a quick dollar whether it be through mowing lawns, washing cars or collecting comics and baseball cards and always managed to never be broke. He moved to the bay to attend the prominent UC Berkeley which led to a business degree and successful career in the financial industry. He later returned to get his MBA at the prestigious Standford University all before younger brother SwizZz and Hopsin approached him in 2008 to start a new, independent record label, which he decided to pursue after being laid off from an office job in Chicago.

Listen below to hear the rest of Dame’s inspirational story to find out more information about the conference which looks to inspire the next generation of leaders and teaching them the basics of how to build a team, increase your video views, how to get on the road and learn from previous mistakes with participating panelists Crooked I, Will Bronson (IamSu), Jarren Benton, Chris Webby and many more. Find out who Dame wish he would have signed to Funk Volume in the interview below. Hope that after listening, it sends a message to you that whenever chips are down and when all else feels, keep it moving.
Threes up to the entire Funk Volume team (Brooklyn Martino, DJ Hoppa, SwizZz, Dizzy Wright, Jarren Benton, Hopsin) & more for all of your hard work thus far. #stillmovin

Don’t forget http://www.funkvolumeconference.com for more info! If you are attending the conference, make sure to join the Funk Volume Virtual Hip Hop Conference Facebook page and join the conversation at #FVHHC. Hope to meet you all soon! Congratulations on making a great decision to #investinyourself – still to this day if I find an opportunity to further my own education I jump at it. There’s always something new to learn or re-learn.

From DashRadio.com:

“Ever think that radio sucks with the same few songs and playlists over and over? Don’t forget the 15 minutes of commercials per hour too, and lack of variety and personality. DASH Radio brings the magic back radio once had. We don’t have or want 1000’s of stations (that only simulcast FM broadcasts and the same 10 formats repeatedly), or the lack of variety and energy computer powered playlists give you- DASH is all original and real, with the most authentic and credible stations, DJ’s, and team behind us.

Dash Radio was created by the world’s biggest DJ’s who became fed up with the limitations of regular FM radio (and hate internet playlists that pose as radio powered by soulless computers). Together, we formed Dash with one goal: to provide the best radio platform in the world. This means all the variety you ever wanted with zero commercials… oh ya, all live 24/7, for free.

We work hard to provide the best radio experience in the world (seriously, there are live DJ’s in our studio right now 24/7) but please tell us what you want to hear, add, or change as we are constantly evolving. If you like what you hear and want to help us grow, tell your friends to join the evolution of radio. Thanks for being down with us on day one.”

DASH has a fast and easy interface: simply click on your favorite preset stations (like the dashboard of a car) and go. No ad’s, new windows, or searching. Everything is done with a simple tap!
