Name: Cal McKinney

Company: Majestic Casual

Title: Creative Lead, Product Manager

Based in: Berlin

Can you tell us a bit about the company’s history and its “roster”? Majestic Casual was originally founded as a YouTube Channel in 2012 showcasing an array of eclectic music, before organically growing into producing events and forming into a record label in 2016 with releases from likes of Two Feet, Kyson, Noah Slee, Serious Klein & More.

– and a bit about the acts you personally work with at this moment? Forthcoming releases are coming from likes of Kuala Lumpur based, Bangladesh indie-pop artist Deemer, NY-based Midnight, who is creating politically-driven anti-pop with gorgeous electronic RNB inspired productions, as well as Lost-Angeles producer Sakehands, and Nu-Disco Welsh Producer Tomos.

What was the moment you decided you wanted to work with music? Somewhere round October 2004. Kelis released ‘Millionaire’ ft. Andre 3000 – I was 10 years old, my cousin played it in his car and it blew my mind. I became obsessed and think that was the first time I really fell in love with music as a whole, so think subconsciously maybe that’s when I knew. The song still slaps now 15 years on too haha.

What are your favourite Danish acts? Courtesy is my fave Danish artist right now. As a DJ, personally I feel there’s no one coming close to the level that she’s currently performing at, and as a label manager, her two labels Kulør & Ecotherm are producing some of the most innovative techno releases in years. She’s definitely a big inspiration creatively for me and couldn’t recommend highly enough.

Iceage are another act who I’m big fans of, they released a record end of last year which is really worth a listen – postpunk goodness.

Best show you’ve ever seen hands down? Green Day w/ Jimmy Eat World & Taking Back Sunday at Milton Keynes Bowl, 2004. Lineup is pretty jokes, but it was the first gig I ever went too, just me, my dad and my brother, still remember how excited I was now – grew my hair long for it especially ha.
